well i heard back from both tom lee and long & mcquade, the 2 "authorised dealers" for tractor scratch in canada. it appears canada won't see tractor scratch till june. as well the crossgrade offer will only be available by special order. 6 to 8 weeks depending on availability is what i've been told. aparently the canadian distributor doesn't even have them in. i really hope there is an extention on the crossgrade offer. its only funny cause some retailers ie. guitarcenter have had them distibuted to them already in the us, and have even sold units.
