Please add me to the list to attend SFL Bogleheads meeting in January 2017.
Attended 1st meeting, missed second, want to make sure I am signed up for this one.
Will be driving down from Palm City, Martin County in my Tesla if anyone needs a ride!

Miriam so glad to hear from you again after Bogleheads 2016.

Taylor, that offer to go sailing still stand? :happy

Is there a sign up sheet for this? This will be at least the third "SoFL Bogleheads chapter" meeting. I am hopeful that we can find an adequate venue to hold the many folks who have expressed an interest in attending. Perhaps a contribution to the cause would be appropriate :moneybag I will be happy to contribute a few bucks to the cause, after all the Bogleheads have done for me 8-)

No such suggestion :D :D we know you Palm Beachers are highly sophisticated, impeccably dressed and well-behaved. But the only available Palm Beach venue suggested by a Palm Beacher was the Blue Martini Lounge on Rosemary Ave., and, while beautiful, it simply is not quiet enough for our meeting :D

Thank you for responding everyone, duly noted.

jdb - are you coming in your new Tesla? So is TF Hutch. I guess we are a Tesla group 8-)
mikeal - looking forward to seeing you again, nice to meet DW
BogleTails + DW - welcome! you'll enjoy the meeting

For those who contacted us through the gmail account, we'll contact you there.

The location will be posted as soon as it is firmed up. We are open for topic suggestions, although since tax season is upon us before we know it and we have a CPA in our midst :D we thought we would discuss taxes and mutual funds, tax efficient placement, etc. And also we enjoy a nice just-talk-finance-&-ask-Qs. And we eat well, Taylor treats us to delicious sub sandwiches :happy

I would like to attend the upcoming SFL Bogleheads meeting January 22, 2017. Is this post an adequate RSVP or is there a sign-up process? As a fairly new member I have not attended any previous meetings. I live in Ft. Lauderdale.

Yes I would like to attend, I posted a few months in advance that I was interested in attending the meeting last summer in the Grove but a few days prior to the meeting it was stated that the venue booked. Once a venue is found I would be most grateful for any advice on how to get my name on the list to attend. Thanks

Oh Dang...we will only be in town until the 9th. Since my husband is on the verge of retirement, I hope we can join the next time round. BTW, for future reference, I have access to my homeowners association meeting room in Broward Cty. It isn't glamorous, but it's quiet and it's free

The Aon Building (also called the Brickell Bay Office Tower)

Hi -- Yes, I'll be driving from Lake Worth.
Not sure of ability to carpool, however, as I might be visiting some other places while I'm down there.

Looking forward to meeting everyone.
