Welcome EpicLeFit! You've been added to our very prestigious mail list!

To all.... Our next meeting is Saturday, October 14th, noon at Sprecher's on the far west side.

We have a new protocol for meetings. If you're planning on attending the meeting we need you to commit to attend in advance. If not enough members plan to attend the meeting will be cancelled. We have about 40 people signed up on the Gmail list, and we've had some meetings with healthy crowds. However a couple meetings this past summer had poor attendance and the lack of attendance was not fair to the faithful who drove all the way across town to be there.

So if you're planning on attending our upcoming meeting we need you to commit by Wednesday, Oct. 11. Post a note to the Gmail list.

I haven't attended any meetings, but just saw that Sprecher's is closing on Friday permanently! I remember passing this thread and that you held meetings here. Didn't want this group to miss that announcement :(

Hey Madison, Bogleheads, we're meeting next Saturday, April 14th at noon, at Sai-Bai Thong restaurant at 6802 Odana Road. Sprecher's is no longer in business.

We have no speaker scheduled, so it's general investment chit-chat.

Please RSVP by Thursday if you plan to attend so others will know how many are attending. Drop me a note via PM or post to the Madison Bogleheads Google Group. If you'd like to join the Google Group please PM me.

Hey Madison Bogleheads it's time for our June meeting. Join us next Saturday, June 9, at Sai-Bai Thong Thai restaurant at 6802 Odana Road, on Madison's West side near West Towne Mall.

Usually our meetings start at noon, but this month Sai-Bai Thong has booked another party in our room at 1 p.m. So.... An arrival time of 11:30 a.m. will give us 1.5 hours to eat and chat. Does that sound sufficient?

If you're planning on attending please drop a note so others have an idea of how many will be attending.

Hi Mrs. Feeley - I'm interested in coming but I can't send PMs yet (just registered even though I've been following posts on the site for awhile). Can you count me in?

Planning to be there, but can't stay for long as I need to be in Sun Prairie at 1:00. Hope to learn some things though :)

Is there an August meetup planned or did I miss it? I think the scheduled date would have fallen on August 11.
