Agenda item: our own NAVigator will offer analysis of the classic A Random Walk Down Wall Street. He has all the editions and must know it well!

Thanks, Jerry!

I don't, but if there are any I suspect you'll find them here in the forum.

If not: be the founder!

Final reminder: our next meeting is Saturday May 4. Details are in the first post above.

We have two items on the agenda:

  • Jerry will present the classic A Random Walk Down Wall Street
  • Arleigh will lead discussion on John Bogle's recent appearance on PBS Frontline, "The Retirement Gamble"

Looking forward to seeing everyone! Spring has finally arrived and this is how we celebrate it!

I'd be interested in this as well. I'm in Des Moines and Coralville is a bit too much of a drive (not to mention I fear there may too many hawkeyes to contend with in eastern Iowa. :wink: :P )

That was a well-attended meeting, with wide-ranging and free-spirited discussion! Let's do it again.

It was great seeing everyone and meeting new people!

Next meeting will be in October. Watch this forum for details, or join our announcements email list as described in the first post above.

Regards,

Just a note: those from the Des Moines area who can't make it to the Eastern Iowa meetings, there is an effort here to get a Central Iowa group organized: Des Moines Iowa local chapter?

Of course, everyone is welcome at our shindigs, but we understand the longer the drive the harder it is to make it.

It is my hope that someday we will have all-Iowa jamborees where we occupy a hotel and run wild with hats, horns, and water-balloons. Think about it.
