fyi for those who couldn't make it, we had a good turnout (13) at today's meeting considering the snowy weather. Included a brief presentation (from one of our most experienced Bogleheads) & discussion on a Mr. Money Mustache spreadsheet (regarding tax rates), as well as conversation on tax gain harvesting to remain in the zero % tax bracket, and observations regarding “gender roles” noticed involving family money management. We had 8 folks get together before the meeting downstairs in the Carnegie's Cafe for some initial chats, as well as 9 people go to dinner after the meeting as well.

During the meeting, I mentioned that I had been asked by someone outside the group if they could make a presentation on self-directed IRAs (for alternative investments like real estate), and the group indicated a desire to hear the presentation so I'll look to get that on the agenda in a future meeting. Additionally, at dinner some folks expressed a desire to hear about other members specific asset allocations (percentages, not $ amounts and why) and noted their own willingness to share their own asset allocations and rationale - so we'll look to do that in the near-term future as well.

All, Just a reminder about Sunday's (10 March) meeting schedule - first two portions are at the Columbus Main Library, 96 S. Grant Ave., Columbus, OH 43215.

2:00 - Carnegie's Cafe (Library 1st floor)
3:00 - Meeting - Room 3B
5:15 - Dinner @ Pat & Gracie's Restaurant (340 E. Gay St., Columbus - it's a few blocks from the library, w/parking across the street)

As feasible (depending on the number of newcomers/basic questions), the first hour or so of the meeting will be for "basics" while the last hour will be "beyond basics".

If you have any specific subjects you'd like to have discussed and let others know about ahead of time, please reply with them here as desired.

If you plan on going to dinner, please let me know by Thursday (7 March) so I can let the restaurant have a rough count of how many to expect, thanks.

Thanks and see you Sunday.

Please note the room change for this week's meeting - room 3A (not 3B) - this room is bigger (24 vs. 16 capacity), but we could still overrun the room IF everyone on Meetup.com actually shows up (HIGHLY UNLIKELY). See you Sunday.

All,

Our May meeting is being rescheduled from 12 May to 19 May due to Mother's Day. Unfortunately, I waited too long to make the change and our normal meeting location is full in May.

May 19th meeting location: Westland Area Library (4740 W. Broad St., Columbus, Ohio 43228 - in Lincoln Village Plaza Shopping Center)

Meeting will be in the Library Large Meeting Room - go to the left after entering the 1st set of library doors, before entering into the library itself)

2:00 - Library Large Meeting Room (coffee and doughnuts - I'll bring doughnuts, you bring the coffee)
3:00 - Library Large Meeting Room - Regular meeting
5:05 - Dinner: Several choices within a couple hundred yards - please let me know which you prefer before we settle on one - provide your choice/input by next Saturday (4 May), thanks.

W.G. Grinders - Italian sandwiches, salads
Roosters - Wings, etc.
Joseppi's Pizza

Meeting agenda item: For this meeting, there will be an initial brief (15-20min.) on Asset Allocation, and then members who are interested can share their own asset allocations as we discuss and learn from them (no $ amounts involved/requested).

On the Yahoo Group is an asset allocation template for members who wish to provide their asset allocations for discussion. Additionally, on the Yahoo Group I've attached my own asset allocation as a potential discussion starter if necessary.

Please provide your completed asset allocation template on the Yahoo Group by Saturday, 11 May. If necessary, we can continue this discussion into June, etc. depending on the interest level.

If you have any questions/comments, please let me know.

Thanks and see you on Sunday, 19 May.

Since Yahoo Groups functionality is going away, I created a new Google Group titled Columbus Bogleheads for folks to join. Using the Yahoo Group email list, I invited old members to the new group. Anyone new wanting to join may also request to do so.
