thanks to paul for the presentation at the beginning. prompted some good discussion and questions. next meeting is saturday, 6-aug, somewhere.. at some time... stay tuned.
36 folks made it today.
see the attached PDFs for the two powerpoints used today.
there has been some interest in possibly pursuing a southern minnesota chapter (rochester, winona, owatonna, faribault, albert lea, etc.) fred S has agreed to scope out interest and see if there are enough people interested in a southern MN group. he would then would pick a restaurant or whatever (probably in rochester) for a kickoff meeting. if interested in getting details of that, please let me know, and i'll pass your info on to fred s. having yet another boglehead group form in MN would be awesome!
i CCed anna and stupendous phil, the west side and east side chapter coordinators, resp. sounds like west side will meet face to face in the fall, and just keep some emails flying around between them this summer. i believe solid phil plans on meeting periodically thru the summer at a maplewood coffee shop. contact them directly if interested in joining them for informal boglehead talk in between the main meetings..
i posted some pix on the main forum website...viewtopic.php?t=73697
also, someone asked about a tax contact that could be recommended. we had matt bruun - CPA talk to us a few meetings ago. he's a good, no nonsense tax guy (aren't they all?). for the people who had tax questions, you could float some things past matt. i CCed his email address.
i think ... is a keeper. free, good wifi, free computer projector use, carpeted room that allows food and drink, pretty good location at junction of many interstates, roomy, free. did i mention free?
looking into ....for next meeting. possibly with joe the estate planning attorney or social security admin speaker.
