The information is here in these three locations:
Obama is coming to Arizona Wednesday. This has been kept quiet and details are just coming out as to the when and where. We have information that he will be in the south area of the Intel campus, but the times were not give out officially. We've heard 3pm and 4:30pm from two different sources. Therefore, to make sure we don't miss the event, we will set it at 3pm (get there early) and will gather on the NE corner of Chaparral and Dobson (SE corner of the Intel property). Parking is going to be a challenge. The plan is, we will park on the residential streets near the area involved.
You can bring signs with the message of your choice. No particular theme needed, just let Obama know how you feel.
We are waiting to hear back from the Secret Service as to whether or not they are going to have that area blocked off. If they somehow close that area, we will update with an alternate area.
DIRECTIONS - On the South 202 Loop, take Dobson South until you get to Ocotillo. Then turn right and head west until it dead ends. Take a left on Dobson and then turn left on Chaparral and find a parking space.
