    Hello Halton!

    Since Amber signed you up, 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=http://boards.theforce.net/Santa_Cruz,_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 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

    It should be fine, I was going to do it for London but I am not going to be in the UK at the right time anyway.

    What we could do is if it is ok with Mi and the organiser that taking it from TO to here as it isn't far you could bring it over to save some postage?

    If they're really "planning" it.. he should be here for Toronto, Halton, Niagra, and London (ON)... If Niagra doesn't officially sign... I'll do it for them hehe...

    A bit of an update:

    Well, to make a long story short, Yoda is only on his second stop (yes, you heard right). The London, England contact person disappeared for 3 months with Yoda and we finally just got him off to his next stop. This puts us behind by 3 months (he should already be in Asia or Australia by now :rolleyes: ), but the tour still goes on! :D

    (And no, we still don't have a website up. We're working on it when we can! :) )

    Update:

    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

    As for Yoda himself, due to an error in the French Post Office, Yoda was sent back to Wales. We are currently preparing to try to send him to France once more. :)

    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
