The first batch of Forum III guitars is expected the week of March 16th. Jim Holler is  looking at flights to go out that week.
We are going to offer a Forum III factory tour some day that week  for anyone who wants to attend. 

This thread is to discuss the factory tour and get a list of those who plan to attend.

Unfortunately, I cannot pull off the trip and guitar at the same time. Damn! Unless I win the lottery of course  In my dreams!  crying

In addition to no $, I just realized that is the week I move, so there is absolutely 0 chance I can come.

Awww,  PLEASE can someone send me millions of photos, I don't think I can make it  it's only about a million miles away.

I hope loads of you get to do this, it will make the guitar even more special.

Can we nail down the specific day-date(s) please?

I guess either Randy or Jim can book an appointment for the tour of the Vancouver Factory?

The earlier we know this, the better --- for people to book time off work/business/family.

It's also good for hunting for good deals in airfare tickets.

Warmly,

ricky --- Ah yeah! Very interested in joining --- please do NOT make it on Holy Week nor Easter weekend as either one brings my chances to ZERO.

Ricky,

Easter is in April this year. Not sure what you mean by Holy Week, so I can't comment on that. In Ontario at least, that week is the March break.

Okay... I'm safe then.

Holy Week is traditionally the Monday-Saturday before Easter Sunday.

Thanks,

May I make a suggestion that we do it on either a Friday or a Monday?  That way we can make it into into a long weekend vs. having to take a day off in the middle of the week or something.  Vancouver is a beautiful city and it makes for a nice 3 day trip.

Anyone else agree?

Lynda,

Of course... I wish I still lived on Vancouver Island... Vancouver used to be a 2hr drive and 2hr ferry ride away...
But I am just thankful to be a part of this incredible project!

My wife and I are hoping to move back to BC in the near future(within 1-2yr); it depends on how soon we get pregnant.... :)

anyhow.. back on topic... I hope ya'll have a great trip!

I'm very interested! Firm up the dates, and I'll see what the travel options/costs  are - I think I'd prefer it on a Friday, so we would have the weekend afterward to play, but I'll bow to the group.

Does this mean we have a time schedule on completion and shipping?

Two questions......

Can I go even if I didn't order a forum III?

How long does it take to get a passport??

Honest, I was telling my wife just last week "I'd love to tour the Larrivee facility" 
What a great idea!!!!!

Don't know where you're located, but look on your government web site. You can usually pay more to get it expedited, but I still think you're looking at at least 3-4 weeks.

used to live there too until 2004 when I moved to Deadmonton.  But when I used to live in Vancouver, I never paid attention to acoustic guitars.  oh well.

it would be neat to meet Forumites who are fortunate enough to live in the same city where our gits are made.
