Oh, yikes. Just saw this. Will try to attend if I am available.

Also, another update -- Larry Swedroe's talk at the Central Library (downtown St. Louis) is next Thursday, April 26 (6:30-8:30). I created an event in the ChooseFI St. Louis group for this talk, and if anyone is interested, we will grab a beer at Urban Chestnut (3229 Washington) around 8:45ish after the talk.

Great first revival of the St Louis chapter of the Bogleheads. We enjoyed some great stories and shared investing experiences with each of the group adding to the Boglehead way of investing.

Thanks to Veiled for getting the first meeting under way and being solely responsible for the "revival".

Hope to meet with everyone again in a couple months.

Dan and epicahab beat me to announcing that we all had a great time!

The group was thinking of meeting again in July, and St. Charles was suggested as a possible location. When we get closer, I'll start sending out PMs to those who expressed interest but couldn't make it to last weekend's meeting. In the mean time, I hope everyone enjoys the start of summer and stays the course.

Hello St. Louis Bogleheads! As we discussed when we met in May, it'd be great to be meeting every few months and in different places to draw out different parts of the crowd. We'd talked about finding a place to eat in St. Charles in July or August.

Right now, I find myself busier than I anticipated for this summer. I'd love to start planning a get-together in September, though. I'm soliciting venue suggestions and your availability. I hope we can have another great conversation!

Sounds great to me, Veiled. There are lots of nice restaurants off St. Charles Main including Trailhead, Mill Stream, Lewis & Clark's, etc.

I might be interested, but would be more so for a more central location. Something in the Clayton->Chesterfield area. I think this is relatively central North-South, and East-West, and probably within 30 minutes of a larger portion of the St. Louis area than St. Charles. But if it's St. Charles this next time, so be it - I might catch the one after...

I might be interested as well. I live on the east side, but have no problem traveling. St. Charles is fine, but Clayton or closer to downtown would be fine as well.

The first time we ever did this Larry hosted us and IIRC his firm even supplied lunch. :D

And we got a tour of their bond desk! (It's not like we see in the movies.)

I enjoyed our most recent get-together and look forward to the next one, wherever the group decides.

It’s wonderful to hear from you all, those who attended last time and some new faces.

Last time we met in Clayton because of its central location. At that meeting, seveal people suggested St. Charles. Its a nice area although geographically further from some. I would like to hear from as many people as possible where you’d like to meet. We could certainly have a second Clayton meeting and afterwards branch out to west county or downtown.

I would be interested as well. Live in Clayton, so that would be more convenient, but also work in St. Charles, so could make it work on a weeknight.
