    Hello Lafayette!

    Welcome to Yoda's World Tour!! We're very eager to have Louisiana onboard. :)

    Some quick news:

    1) The planning thread on the Santa Cruz board is Here, for quick reference.

    2) We are putting a cap on joining the tour. The last day to join is next Friday, July 8th. (You guys barely squeaked in. If any of the other Fanforces in your area wish to join, let them know quick!) ;)

    3) Each fanforce will have 2 weeks with Yoda. The 2 weeks will start the day Yoda arrives. We ask that in those 2 weeks you take photos of him in "touristy, famous, or just plain cool" locations, and that he is shipped to the next Fanforce before the 2 weeks are up. We will be sending a logbook around with Yoda. The layout of the book has not been completely decided, yet once we know, you'll know. ;)

    4) And lastly, I am going to need a contact person. Someone in the group who will take full responsibility of Yoda and ensure that he is properly shipped off (and will also send the shipping number to either myself or Master--Kenobi, so we can keep track of him.

    IF I DO NOT HAVE A CONTACT PERSON BY THE TIME THE TOUR BEGINS, I AM SORRY TO SAY WE SHALL HAVE TO REMOVE YOU FROM THE TOUR. :(

    What I need from the contact person:
    Name, home adress, email, and phone number. No, I'm not going to sell it online. :p Only two people will have a list of contacts: myself and Master--Kenobi. We need your adresses for shipping, email address to say "Hey, he's on his way, hey he's stuck in a blizzard, etc..", and the phone number will be a "just in case."

    Please have your appointed contact person PM me with this information.

    Thank you all and we're very eager to begin the tour!! :D

    I sent my info. forward in a PM and accepted responsibility for Yoda on behalf of FanForce Acadiana. This will be great!

    Yes. I signed us up for it. They ship an electronic interactive Yoda to a FanForce chapter. That chapter spends time bringing Yoda to different touristy locals and takes photos to submit to a scrapbook. After partying with Yoda, we ship him to the next location. The whole while everyone is trying to get Yoda and Ewin McGregor together in real life. Doubt we will be able to manage that, but we will definatly be able to show old Yoda a good time in the best Cajun way. Don't you think?

    Could make for a fun FanForce Acadiana meeting.

    He'll be right at home here in our swamp!

    We'll have to take him out to the Atchafalya Basin and get some good snaps of him with the gators.

    Does anyone own a boat?

    Unfortunately, you guys get the not so fun task of shipping Yoda all the way to Chile. :eek: However, never fear! We are in the planning stages right now of a paypal account for Yoda. We're going to try to pool money to help pay for shipping. The 3 fanforces who will gain benefit of this account is Germany (they have to send him to SINGAPORE!), Louisiana, and Chile (to send him back up here). :D

    Very good! Sounds like an excellent plan. How are we going to track his progress? Will there be something like a Yoda Homing Beacon? This way we can better plan on when we receive him and more efficiently execute our part of his tour.

    We're going to have a map working a la Indiana Jones style to track Yoda around and tell where he is, where he was, and where he's going next (if the damn website will ever get built!)


    Also, GOOD NEWS! You guys don't get stuck sending Yoda to Chile! My sister moved to Texas yesterday with her fiancé, so she will gladly get Yoda from your CP, show him around her part of Texas, then she will pay to send Yoda down to Chile. :D

    So, in the past 6 months, Yoda has:

    * Been lost in London for 3 months.
    * Partied like a Brit in Midlands, England
    * Enjoyed the countryside of Wales
    * Had over 10 new fanforces added to his tour (mostly in Europe)
    * Spent the holidays in a French Post Office
    * Got "Returned to Sender" back to Wales

    So that takes us up to now. :p We're preparing to send Yoda to France for the 2nd time. Hopefully, he'll stay there this time. :p

    The website is almost finished. However, our webmisstress' computer crashed, so it will take a little bit before we can finish it. There are several text mistakes on the website (for instance, she listed Canada as being part of the USA [face_laugh] ), but other than that, it is nearly there! I will let you know when it is finished. :D


    Thank you for your patience! :D

    Well, after 3 tries to send the little guy to France (and failing each time), we have decided to skip France and move on to Germany. The tour is WAY behind schedule, so we hope it will pick up pace and continue on.

    Thank you for your patience!

    Also, the website is now up in English, Spanish, and German with French on the way! :D
