SE FLORIDA 2nd meeting - December 9, 2012

Postby englishgirl » Mon Nov 12, 2012 6:28 pm

We are planning our meeting for Sunday, December 9, 2012, in the afternoon. It'll be at an executive office center in west Boca Raton (easy access from both the Turnpike and I-95), and we have reserved a conference room which seats 14 people, but I'm sure we can squeeze in a few extra chairs if necessary.

So far, if I have kept track correctly, we have 7 people who have expressed an interest (Taylor & Pat Larimore, me, kevqno, 1530jesup, DWD and JM13004). If you are interested and haven't already signed up, please PM me or post on this thread. I will PM or email the exact location to everyone that signs up.

kevqno - please can you confirm the time that the room is reserved for. And, are we allowed to bring sandwich/snack type food?

Everyone - start thinking of an investing question to ask the group. Also, if you've recently read a good investing book (or done a good iTunes U course, or any other variant) and want to recommend it, maybe that is something that we can talk about too.

I have the room reserved from 2-5 pm. We can bring in snacks. There is a small kitchen across the hall from the conference room with a microwave and a refrigerator.

Going back to Florida during the period. Will try to arrange my schedule to be near Boca during that time.
Please put me down as a possible.

I wish I knew. There has not been a meeting (that I am aware of) in quite awhile. Hope they have some again in the future.
Last I met with Ave he was biking up a storm and was quite OK.

OK, we're up to 11 people. 3 more seats available, although I'm assuming we could always squeeze an extra chair in here or there if we need to.

Another suggested topic to discuss is hints and tips/orientation to using the web site such how to find old posts or bookmark a post.

Shameless bump.

Also, it has been suggested that we incorporate a meal - either meeting for lunch beforehand, or dinner afterwards. I don't think I'll be able to make it for food, but if anyone else wants to meet up for a meal, we should work something out.

I won't be able to meet before or after. In fact, I may need to leave a bit before the scheduled end time of the meeting for a family function.

Our resident celebrity author, Mr. Taylor Larimore, has made the following offer:

I will be happy to sign any Boglehead books and answer questions about the books.

OK, don't forget about Sunday, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach peeps!

We've got 2 or 3 iffy about coming, and one hasn't opened the PM, but I think we should still have a good group.
