    Thank you yazmon. That was fantastic that you introduced a new Torch to CSA. I am looking forward to meeting Torch v3 in 261 days. Can't wait to return.

    OK now, it has been over a week with no word of Torch's adventures....Did he slip away into someone's carry on and leave CSA again?

    I'm starting to worry about Torch also. I'm hoping to meet him in September.

    How fun! We'd be honored to carry (the) Torch when we're there in May 2014!

    There are actually three Torches. The original that is MIA, that Jeff and Mary Beth purchased, v2 is the old man in the photo and v3 is the skinny guy on the left. My wife fell in love with v2, so we have him here in Illinois. We then purchased v3 to leave at CSA.

    As a clarification on this-- we actually purchased v2 & v3 when we were at CSA the first week in March. We had so much fun with v2 that we decided to have a Torch with us back in Illinois. Our plan is to take him out to a few of our favorite spots and post more pictures of him. v3 may still be at CSA. We haven't heard from him in awhile.

    When you get to CSA check with the guys at the Watersports hut and see if the have him. This was supposed to be his holding area where we could pass him off. If he is not there, talk to Junior (aka the Mountain Man), he is the stocky vendor, on the beach. He is a great guy and we always buy a few of his wood carvings. If he doesn't have a "Rasta Mon" with him he can make one in a couple of days. The going rate is about $30.

    Yep.

    I have been assuming this little tradition we tried to start has been dead since Early April of 2013. It looks like lack of knowledge about this "thing" and difficulty in setting up passes caused the whole thing to fizzle out by the second or third pass on every Torch we tried. It seemed to me that most people just didn't want to deal with having to locate strangers while on vacation.

    Thanks to all who tried, especially Dentalgal and Yazmon. Unfortunately it looks like this tradition we tried to start is just not taking hold.

    hey there... we were @ couples n' i was sooooooooooo impressed as were the 'guests' that had torch when i spotted him after landing 2 hours earlier!!!! hubby thought i was nuts going???? what are you talking about...n' im actually ecstatic going...THATS TORCH!!!!!

    needless to say we took pictures but the group that had him? wasnt going to let us continue on with torch...but instead told us they had already arranged/prepared a passing of the torch ceremony with their friends...so we said sure n' dont forget to leave him at the scuba place...to which they went???? aka they never heard of leaving him there...:O(

    NOW that i was finally able to get around/thru the hoops to register for the forum? ill go n' get the pictures we have WITH TORCH!!!

    hugs as always to all.../me...

    Hi!
    We are arriving to CSA THIS Saturday, 9/28.
    We would love the honor of passing the torch (and of course having the torch passed to us!)
    No matter what, I will be searching the grounds and all of his favorite places while there to find him and update those interested!

    Hi Jeff, im thinking this is a hoax since we haven't heard from "Justame" in 3 + weeks but rest assured that when we get there at Thanksgiving we will look all over for "Torch". : )

    just a quick note to see if this posts 'quicker' than my first one that had the three images on it...something about a moderator has to 'approve' it first? so /me patiently waits to make sure the previous post shows...:O)
