    Hello Birmingham!

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

    Some quick news:

    1) The planning thread on the Santa Cruz board is [link=,_CA/b10693/20317084/p1]Here[/link], for quick reference.

    2) We are putting a cap on joining the tour. The last day to join is 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.)


    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 just found out about all this, sounds great!
    The Syndicate being a statewide club, a couple of us have expressed interest. A Mobile member spoke up first, I don't know yet if she has signed up, but I said I'll be back up if she needs any help.
    I'll PM you with my info.
    We want to make sure Yoda sees as much of Alabama as possible!

    Alabama does have a Fan Force, has anyone contacted Enterprise Strikes Back? It would be quite funny to have Yoda in front of an "Enterprise" sign. (Good thing his hands won't be able to pose with a certain Vulcan hand gesture)

    Oh, and we do have one "celebrity" in our midst for Yoda to get his picture with- Jason Collier, the Access Hollywood winner of The Ultimate Star Wars Fan contest. I'll ask him to put on his stormtooper armor for the photo op!

    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

    It's been awhile since I checked back in... sounds like Yoda is having a blast!

    The Enterprise, Ala. Fan Force ought to have a good time with him when they get him: country legend George Jones is buying a home there and will be a spokesperson for a realty properties to draw retirees there.
    It would be great to get the two 900-year-olds together for a photo op!

    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

    Just let me know when! I can't wait to take the little guy around.
