One of my fellow Kung Fu students is in this group, and sent me an e-mail promoting a free show. The full text follows below.
If you have a chance, I highly recommend it. I've seen it and it is fun!
Hello from the PHYSICS FORCE and the University of Minnesota
You received this message because someone you know feels you would enjoy seeing the Physics Circus admission FREE! The show will be presented one night only (Thursday, January 17th) at Northrop Auditorium on the U of M campus at 7:00 PM. Bring the family and friends, get a seat, and enjoy over an hour of great fun.
For over twenty years the Physics Force has attracted standing-room only audiences. They have been featured on Newton's Apple, at the Minnesota State Fair, and at Disney World's Epcott Center. They traveled three times to Europe and appeared on German television as guests of the "Knoff Hoff" show. A trademark of their show is "bigger is better." Why implode a pop can when a 55-gallon drum is available?
Why shoot down a mythical monkey when the target could be a live person dropping from a scaffold 20 feet high! This program is a delight for parents, grandparents and children of all ages. Science teachers and their students are fascinated and so are those that know little about physics.

Please consider sending this message to your friends inviting them to come. We have little budget for promoting the FREE show on Thursday the 17th of January at 7:00 PM, so please help us if you can by forwarding this message on to friends.
Thanks in advance from the Physics Force gang: Dan Dahlberg, Hank Ryan, Jack Netland, Fred Orsted, Aaron Pinski and Jay Dornfeld.
