Well, with me that would make two. :wink: Seriously, I've been out of pocket for a while but have started rechecking this board. I hadn't heard about any Richmond area meetings. Maybe we can drum up some interest.

Sorry I never saw your reply, but I'd be interested. There has to be more than just the 2 of us that are local to Richmond.

Now we're rolling. We can hold a meeting in a phone booth. Wait, nobody knows what phone booths are. Never mind. :beer

Is there any life to the Richmond VA Chapter? I've only been on the forum for about a year, but definitely interested in meeting like minded investors.
Maybe get a group together while sampling some of our local micro-brews? :happy

I moved out of state, so someone else needs to take this over. There were only a couple people in the area and we were never able to meet up.

That's me, so unfortunately no. There is nobody at the moment.

Long time lurker, first time poster so I could respond.

Out in Goochland in Manakin-Sabot. Feel free to PM me if you plan to set up a meeting.

Looks like enough to get a booth at O'Charley's now :happy

My first post is also a chime in to join a local BH group. I live in Midlo but would be all over a meetup at one of the new pubs in Scott's Addition.

Bon air. Definitely interested. I'm also an avid listener of the choosefi podcast which is put on by a guy in short pump and a guy in bon air. I know they have a Richmond local group. Maybe we could set something up with both as both groups preach a very similar message.

Thoughts?

I got tied up so Jeff beat me to it. It's official; Jeff is the new Local Chapter Coordinator for the Richmond VA Chapter. I'll be adding his contact information to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you

Thanks to Jeff for stepping up. My very best to him and all the Richmond-area Bogleheads.

My wife and I should be able to make the June 25 meeting. However, we are doing some home renovations.
If the renovations take much longer than expected then we may not be able to attend.
