Wed September 28 at 6:15 PM, Rick's Ice Cream (and the Green Elephant)
3946 Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
Let's send off the summer in style with Burmese and brain freeze. That's right, it's YET ANOTHER RICK'S RUN. We're going to go with Wednesday the 28th, as most seem to be okay with that.

Either date works for me. Most importantly WELCOME BACK! Glad you'll finally made it to one of these.

Darn it! Something has come up at work, and I cannot make it on the 28th. And I had just stocked up on lactaid pills and was dreaming about having the mint chocolate chip...Hopefully, I will be there next time.

Posting this just in case it helps remind anyone who might otherwise have forgotten that this is the 28th right now and we're on for tonight.

For those who were at the Elephant, here's what the people at the World RPS (Rock Paper Scissors/Rochambeau) Society say about themselves:
The Paper Scissors Stone Club was founded in London, England in 1842 immediately following the issuance of the 1842 law declaring “any decision reached by the use of the process known as Paper Scissors Stone between two gentleman acting in good faith shall constitute a binding contract. Agreements reached in this manner are subject to all relevant contract and tort law." The law was seen as a slap in the face to the growing number of enthusiasts who played it strictly as a recreational activity, since for many constables it was taken to mean that the game could not be played simply for sport. The club was founded and officially registered to provide an environment free from the long arm of the law where enthusiasts could come together and play for honour.

[...In or around 1918] the Club moved its headquarters from London to its present location at Trinity Plaza in Toronto, Canada. Despite the allied victory, the official reason for the move was "England is far too dangerous a place to make a suitable home country for a game of conflict resolution." Canada was seen as an excellent choice since it was seen as a "safe, hospitable and utterly inoffensive nation, a part of the commonwealth, yet not inhabited by the descendants of criminals."
