It looks like we have interest from people coming from Katy and Cypress so I figured this area was central enough to all to work.

Feel free to inbox me for any questions or contact info.

I just found out about this form. I am interested in attending if my job permits me (been working overtime lately). I am from the Missouri City area, near Sugarland.

Hi everyone.

Turnout for Saturday's meetup was pretty low key (3 people total) but made for some good conversation. Looking to keep the momentum going for May.

Tentative date for the next Houston meetup:

May 12, 2018 (Saturday)
Location TBD

Looking into some public library options or tea-house / coffee shop options.

If anyone is interested feel free to post below or inbox me.

I'd like to join the fun.

East Pearland but I'm not bothered by any relatively central location.

I would also be interested in attending. Anything in Houston proper should work for me.

Hi everyone:

Time and location for the next Houston meetup:

Saturday May 12, 2018, 10:30 am
Le Peep (Woodway location)
5750 Woodway Dr #162, Houston, TX 77057

It's a quiet non-trendy brunch place that shouldn't be too busy.

Let me know if you can make it. Inbox me for contact info to coordinate.

Thanks for coming! Enjoyed the conversation and various perspectives today. Just finished bookmarking some articles and blog posts to read later.

Next Chapter Meetup will be in July (either 07/07 or 07/21). I am thinking a local ice house in the early afternoon since Houston summer will be in full swing but am open to suggestions.

Any current ideas? Tomorrow is 7/7 so that's probably out. Ice house sounds good to me, but open to anything as always.

Let's pencil in 07/21 for the July meetup around 2-ish?

Hopefully the weather is better.

I'm thinking West Alabama Icehouse unless someone has a better idea.

Really interested in getting together with the Houston chapter. Can’t make the 21st as we have season tickets at the Hobby Center and have a show on that date. I will save this thread and follow any future dates...

Hello everyone. I had good discussions with the Houston Chapter lead, George, and the lead for the Bogle Head chapter forums. This is what I found out. Geroge is not interested in leading the Houston chapter anymore.


As for meeting, I think this is a great way to get this chapter restarted.

July 21st doesn't work for me as I will be out of town, but, I am interested to know what happens at the meeting. Please let me know


TTYL,

De

I can make the 21st, but based on the last two replies would it make sense to move it a week to the 28th?

Did you (stimulacra) get any input through the inbox? I think we should stick with the 21st if you got any commitments.

Would it work better if we push it back to this Sunday (July 22nd)?

If so any time in the mid afternoon would work for me.

I was going to reschedule it for the 28th but realized I had a prior commitment.

Let me know.

Apologies all. I should have checked here. Did not see any kind of sign or anything, just some folks watching the rugby match. Had a beer and headed back to the house. Just now got back home...

Sorry I missed it. Planned to last night but got caught up in chores today. Next time.
I'll print out a 'Bogleheads' sign to lay on the table!

Welcome. :happy
The two recent ones have been on the West side near the 610 loop. There were four of us a few months ago and missed connections on the most recent try. It was a good conversation the first time, I think we need to get a little bigger crowd to maintain consistency. Personally, I'm in the South East. By all means if there is extra interest in the NW, go for it, helping keep the thread alive, I'd be willing to travel a little further if needed.

I was able to attend the May meeting but had other commitments in July. I would like to be able to attend the next meeting. I am right outside 610 but a short drive isn't bad either.

There’s at least 2 groups. If you’re north there’s a woodlands one.

Do we want to plan one for early September? Either September 8th or September 15th?

Can try West Alabama Icehouse again (with bogleheads signage) or another venue. Open to either brunch or late mid afternoon.

Is there another platform that might be more expedient for coordinating logistics for Boglehead chapter events (either private Facebook events or Evites)? Might be easier to put a face to the screen names and corral people better.

Sept 8 works best. I have had a shotgun approach to investing. All over the place.
