As an update, we have a total of three interested--stw, myself, and another in a PM. Come out of the woodwork, OKC people--if Tulsa has one, we should have a bigger one! >:D

We have enough to start a new chapter! Why don't we set up a first meeting? We could have interested people introduce themselves and talk a little bit about their interest in the group.

Would people be available on a Saturday afternoon for the meeting? I would think May 4 would be a good day.

Also, what part of the metro is everybody in? I am in central OKC, and I think that's probably a good area if we've got people from Norman and Edmond both interested.

I am in northwest OKC, but have no problem driving to anywhere in the metro. Saturday late afternoon or early evening is usually good (If spouses are invited!).

Looks like you have enough to make it official. If you'd like to be the Local Chapter Coordinator (looks like you're already doing the job, setting up the meeting), PM me with your first name and an emai address you'll use for this purpose.

I suggest something like OKCityBogleheads@gmail.com.

Once I have that info, I'll add tha to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

Let's make your group official.

If so, please let me know where and when.

Thanks! :sharebeer :sharebeer

Right now I have heard from slightly more central/NW OKC people than others, so I'm thinking that might be the best...Kamp's at 10th and Oklahoma might be a good spot since it's very close to I-235 for Norman/Edmond people.

May 4 is what I am thinking. Maybe at 3:00 in the afternoon?

If it is Saturday, May 4, I would not be available until after 4:30 pm because of work. Then again, I can't be 100% as far as attendance until I double check family plans/kids schedules.
