I'm a long time lurker interested in joining a Chattanooga chapter.

Naysay,

Good, now there are two of us!

Any others?

BTW, I've only been living here in Chattanooga for almost four years and love it!

I moved to Chattanooga from the Washington DC area just over ten years ago. You are moving to a great place if you like lots of different outdoor activities.

I don't think there is a group here yet but then, I haven't really done more than posting here.

I am also moving to Chattanooga in August. I would be very interested in participating in a boglehead chapter there!

LOL @ a group 7 years in the making. :D

I'm originally from Cleveland, so I've spent a lot of time in Chattanooga, but now I'm living overseas.

I'm visiting my parents over the next month and am sure I'll make several trips to Chattanooga to eat at Ankar's if nothing else (one of the places I miss the most).

So, if you guys happen to plan a get together while I'm around I'd be interested to drop by just to see what one is like.

I'm still interested. That makes two.

Anyone else?

Sounds like there may be enough interest to get a Local Chapter going. If one of you agrees to be the Local Chapter coordinator (that person doesn't have to be a guru but simply communicates with members about meeting dates, times, etc.), we can get you going. Just contact me via PM with your first name and an email address you'll use for this specific purpose (suggest something like KnoxvilleBogleheads at gmail.com) and I'll add your group and contact info to the Bogleheads Local Chapter map so others can find you. You can then use this Local Chapters sub-forum to communicate with each other.

Good luck, Knoxville Bogleheads.

OK, it's official, Chattanooga Bogleheads. Youngblood stepped up and agreed to be your Local Chapter Coordinator. The email address for your new Local Chapter is ChattaoogaBogleheads@outlook.com.

Your group will be Local Chapter #70 and will be added to the Local Chapters Map shortly.

I will post here but, at this point in time we only have three or so interested.

Perhaps we could all just meet for coffee and discuss how to proceed.

I live in the Hixson area and work downtown. If we meet downtown, I can do it during lunch time or whenever. Just need a little heads up to check my schedule.

I have been long time lurker, but potential access to a hometown chapter made me register. Count me in. I live in North Hixson and work downtown.

I've am currently going through some health concerns and will be going to Mayo Clinic at the end of this month.

So, is there anyone else out there who wants to keep this attempt going?

I hate to hear that Youngblood. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers. So, are you wanting to step down from heading up the Chattanooga Chapter?

Hi,

Brand new member and recently moved to Chattanooga. Hoping there are a handful of people who still might want to set up some kind of social circle? Best,

MM
