    Hello Greece!

    My name is Rachel and I am here from the San Diego, California, USA fanforce. Over this summer, the chapter representative of Santa Cruz, California had an idea to send her fried Interactive Yoda around the world on a tour. We gathered over 50 fanforces and sent the little master on his way.

    We sadly overlooked many fanforces, and after several requests to be added to the tour, we have decided to open it up once more. Currently, the little Master in on his way to Wales in the United Kingdom. His only other stops in Europe will be to France and Germany, but we want him to see more of beautiful Europe!

    If your fanforce would like to participate, please send me a PM as soon as possible. We are closing the sign ups on January 1, 2006, but since Yoda is already in Europe, the sooner, the better! All we would need is a person willing to be Yoda's "tour guide" who would take care of him for his 2 week stay in each stop.

    The tour's thread is [link=http://boards.theforce.net/santa_cruz_ca/b10693/20317084/p1/?271]HERE[/link].

    Thank you all!

    ~Rachel

    Glad to have you aboard!

    What I now need is a contact person who would be responsible for Yoda during his 2 week stay in Greece. It is this person's job to look after Yoda, not disappear with him for months at a time *coughcoughLONDONcoughcough*, take him around, take pictures of him at various places, then ship him off to the next fanforce as close as you can to that 2 week mark.

    When said contact person is chosen/volunteers/appointed, I need the following from them:

    Full name
    Home Address (or wherever Yoda will be shipped to)
    Email address
    Phone number where they can be reached.

    If the contact person could please PM me this information as soon as possible, that would be wonderful! The information will only be seen by myself, Master--Kenobi, and the contact person from the fanforce who will be sending you yoda (minus the phone number. That will be for our own records for a "just-in-case").

    Nearly forgot to add:

    With Yoda, a logbook is being sent around. This is a folder in which all of Yoda's memories of each stop will be stored. Each fanforce will have one page to place their favorite picture of Yoda's trip and to decorate and write on the page as much as they wish. All other pictures will be uploaded to the website that we are still constructing (link is in my signature), and where we will be able to display all of the pictures from his tour!

    Thanks again!

    Darn: that was my first thought! :p

    I'm still waiting for a contact person for Greece to come forward (as well as from 5 other European fanforces!) Once I have a final head count with contact information, then I shall be able to give you a better estimated time as to when Yoda should be arriving in Greece.

    He arrived in Wales yesterday, so feel free to go raid the Welsh, United Kingdom thread about the tour, if you wish. ;)

    Home address, meaning where Yoda will be shipped to. He doesn't take up much room, I promise you. He's only this big!

    You get to sit back and relax and do absolutely nothing! :D I will be notifying you all when Yoda is getting closer, then I will PM you, John, to tell you when Yoda has been posted to you. I will then send you the information for the person whom you will be sending Yoda to, then you get to have your fun 2 weeks, then send him off at the end of them. That's it. :D

    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
