Come celebrate Obama's speech and enjoy the SF Mime Troupe as they make fun of our most pressing problems of climate change and fossil fuel use!

It seems that various events have conspired to make for a fun and delightful next meeting.  As it turns out the SF Mime troupe is in town and they are talking Climate Change and fossil fuels on the same day as we are!  So here is what we thought would be fun:

We will meet at Michel Park in Palo Alto at 6:30 (I will try to get there at 6:00 to get a good spot).  You, come on bicycle or carpool if possible, bring a picnic dinner and perhaps something to share.  Before hand we can celebrate the speech that Obama gave last week and catch up in general.  (if you did not see the speech, it is worth it: http://www.whitehouse.gov/photos-and-video/video/2013/06/25/president-obama-speaks-climate-change) The show starts at 7:00 PM and ends before dark.

So if you have not seen the SF Mime Troupe you are in for a treat.

To sum it up, the next meeting will be:
Tuesday July 9th, 6:30
Michel Park South field, Palo Alto,
600 East Meadow Dr. at Cowper Str.

See below for more info on the performance:

"The San Francisco Mime Troupe proudly presents our Summer 2013 production "Oil & Water." This year we are bringing you a program of two short plays linked by their focus on fossil fuels, natural resources, and climate change. …

Part 1: "Deal with the Devil" is set in the not too distant future and begins with the discovery of a dead body in the White House. Following decades of disastrous environmental decisions and a commitment to maintaining the status quo, the USA has fallen upon hard times. All appears lost until an unexpected solution presents itself- but is it worth the risk? Deal with the Devil draws upon elements of Film Noir and 1970s cop shows while asking the question "What will it take to break the cycle?"

Part 2: "Crude Intentions" takes place in modern day San Francisco. Tomasa and Gracie run a small restaurant in the city and are just starting to make ends meet when a visitor from Tomasa's past attempts to collect on an unfulfilled obligation. Tomasa's secret former life is revealed to Gracie, and the two are faced with a life altering dilemma. "Crude Intentions" is inspired by the ongoing legal struggles between Chevron and the plaintiffs who were awarded a $19 billion settlement for environmental devastation in the Ecuadorian Amazon."

Mitchell Park in Palo Alto at 7PM on July 9th
