“The Leap Back 2009: A 20th Anniversary Quantum Leap Convention” four-disc DVD set is now available through the Starlight Children’s Foundation donation page http://www.starlight.org/onlinestore/The suggested donation is $30.00 and all funds go directly to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.  On the donation page there will be the option to donate even more to this wonderful charity, if you are able.


You may contact us at this email address or join our forum with additional questions. DVD sets have begun being mailed out.  


Your purchase of this DVD set is considered a donation to Starlight Children’s Foundation (Fed I.D. #95-3802159) and is tax-deductible. 100% of the donated amount will go to the Starlight Children's foundation. Refunds or exchanges will not be possible.  Before you order a DVD set we need to make you aware of some issues related to the set:


1.  Because the set contains nearly thirteen hours of material from the Convention, the discs are dual-layered (not double-sided).  Older DVD players and some computers may not be able to play dual-layered discs.  Please make sure you will be able to play dual-layered discs before you order.


2.  At some points throughout the DVD set you may experience a change in sound quality or picture.  This is due to original tapes being affected by the sound feed.  The faults include a break-up of the video along the right side of the screen or a green line along the bottom, but these problems do not exist on all panels.  These do not constitute a defect in the DVD set and should not affect your viewing enjoyment. 


3. ONLY Region 1 NTSC format, which is the North American Region, will be available. Most European players are multi-regional, but please make sure you can play Region 1 before ordering.


We also have some news regarding our charitable corporation, The Leap Back 2009, Inc.  The directors voted to dissolve the corporation this year.   All our cash assets have been turned over to the Starlight Children’s Foundation.  All our physical assets have been turned over to the charity, too, including all the DVD sets.  It has been a pleasure working with them. Starlight is currently working with Barbara Pilnick, who is in charge of shipping the sets as donations for the sets come in.


Starlight invites you to stay current with their program activities, promotions, online auctions and stories about the seriously ill kids and their families whom you have so generously supported by subscribing to their monthly eNews and semi-annual  e-Newsletter.  It’s quick and easy.  Just click on www.starlight.org/enews to sign up!  You can unsubscribe anytime.

Thanks to everyone who made this convention and DVD release possible! Without our committee, our special guests, our volunteers, and the wonderful fans like you, Quantum Leap would still be but a memory. Thank you - it has been a leap worth taking for all of us at The Leap Back 2009, Inc.

Due to potential copyright issues, we could not include scenes from Quantum Leap on the upcoming convention DVD release. Therefore, many videos shown at the convention that could not be included on the DVD set are being presented on our Video page instead. Be sure to visit the Video page after purchasing your DVD set!

This set is not produced with or by Universal Studios or anyone legally responsible for the Quantum Leap property. It is being produced in whole by The Leap Back 2009, Inc. for fans - by fans. All proceeds will be donated to the Starlight Children's Foundation.
