Bumping for visibility.

The Fox & Hound is close to Champps. From Champps, hang a left at the traffic light. Goddard Blvd will dead-end onto Mall Boulevard. Turn right, then an immediate left.

The Fox & Hound is immediately to your right in one of the outlier (separate) buildings - it's not in the mall. In fact, it's almost next to Mall Boulevard. Look between Primark (large building) and Maggiano's restaurant.

Saturday's meeting is now in the Philadelphia Inquirer. See this thread: Article on Bogleheads in Philly.com--The Bogleheads celebrate 20 years of low-cost index funds with patron 'Saint Jack'
The print version of this article was shown in Jack Bogle's presentation at the 2018 Bogleheads Conference.

Welcome Juppy!

The tentative date for the next meeting is 11/17, IIRC. I believe the location is also up-in-the-air, as the one for the prior meeting was a last minute substitute after it was discovered that the usual place is now closed. But I'd bet it'll be somewhere in the King Of Prussia area.

But make sure you're subscribed to notifications for this thread, and keep an eye out for updates.
