    Hello Western Australia!

    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 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, and email. 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, and the email address to say "Hey, he's on his way, hey he's stuck in a blizzard, etc.."

    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 thought it would be good for Yoda to stop by our city for a while. For now I'll be the contact for the tour, however if anyone wants to help then by all means let me know :)

    We can organise it so we should recieve Yoda via Singapore, and send him on to our friends in the Eastern States.

    I've already got a perfect idea for a shot of Yoda pirched atop Kings Park ;) I'm also thinking this would be a good chance to add some Knighthood elements to the story, maybe a shot from one of our locations (Perth Concert Hall?). If you've got any other ideas, PM Me :)

    That's cool. And Kart stay the contact. It's easier if it doesn't get switched around. And since you seem to have already organised this stage of it, it's best if you continue. :)

    Hmmm...anyone fancy a drive out to the Pinnacles while Yoda's in town? :p

    Seriously, sounds really good to me. Especially the Perth Concert Hall.

    Yeah I had a feeling you would like that, Saint :)

    Alright we can make a list of all locations we think are best for little Yoda to travel to. There's a few good ones to start with, maybe a few day trips on a weekend for all those interested.

    I can arrange a photo with the world's biggest hole. I'm referring to the superpit of course, not the town. :p

    As a brief update, Yoda's flight to England leaves Tuesday. :D

    He spent the past week at Comic Con International in San Diego, hanging out with all the Star Wars celebs that were present. Pictures can be found in the planning thread on the Santa Cruz forum.

    Great news! Yoda's on the prowl. I'll check out those screens for sure. Let me know when we can expect our friend hitting Australia.

    Yoda is in England!!

    I am leaving for New Zealand tomorrow, so please direct ALL questions to Master-Kenobi until I get back.

    Also, on the issue of The logbook:

    A binder is being sent around with Yoda to help record his journeys. Each group will be allowed ONE PAGE to fill up/decorate to your hearts' desires. We ask that only one picture be put on it, as the rest can be uploaded to the website (which is going through SERIOUS technical difficulties at the moment and may not be up as soon as we'd like).

    A sample page can be seen [link=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b278/legomania5/yodalogsample.jpg]HERE[/link].

    You will have a place to put a picture, a small tag to indicate the date and other information, a small pocket to hold things, and a space at the bottom to describe his adventure.

    We ask that each group PLEASE only uses one page, as we only have enough for one page per group. Also, please do not include any plants or food on the page, since we don't want customs confiscating the book and breathing down our neck about it. :p

    Thanks again!

    When you Perth guys are done with him perhaps you could send him on to me in Kalgoorlie and I'll send him along to the South Australian folks. Another stopover in the same state.

    There's a schedule they're trying to keep to, a delay of even one or two days each stop would amount to months at the other end. I think the cutoff for getting on board and on the schedule was July 8.

    Well, maybe someone wants to drive to Kalgoorlie for a day?

    Only a suggestion.....

    soneil: "We ask that in those 2 weeks you take photos of him in "touristy, famous, or just plain cool" locations" - Where does Kal fit into that? :p

    Kart: Mr Contact Person, what are your plans for Yoda? Where's he going to? What's happenin?

    What other location would look more like Tatooine! :)
    Of course I don't know if Yoda ever visited that planet but he was old. I'm sure he'd got around in those 900 years.

    lol ;) Kal is a great idea. Keep it in mind and if we can we'll do it. Soneil, think you can drive up and back with little Yoda in a quick burst of speed?

    Well let's see. The obvious places I've previously mentioned, that being Kings Park and the Bell Tower. Maybe a location or two that we used for Knighthood, Concert Hall would be good. We'll be throwing a welcome party for sure to get some snazzy photos. If time allows there's plenty of other places that are possible, if we wish to organise a few group gatherings and have some fun.

    Keep the ideas coming guys! :)

    Hey guys, just a quick update.

    Yoda's missing in London. We're hoping to find him soon and get the tour underway, so here's hoping that the contact person (who dropped off the face of the planet) surfaces again. :)

    Once we find the little tyke, then we'll get the tour going again. I won't even try to give ETAs for him until we find him, but I'll keep you guys informed! :D

    It was a close one, but Yoda survived his London adventure. Granted, it took a little bit longer then we all expected :p Still, that's good news so we should see Yoda down under very soon!

    He was given to TheDarthVader, who then got really sick and consequently, no one could get a hold of him. When TheDarthVader was well enough to return to the London forum, he let us know that Yoda was alive and well.
