I'll ping the organizers and see if I can set something up.

I'll do a survey for the location when I get a list put together.

I like the idea of doing it at a library or other private meeting space. It should let us do some casual presentations or the like. I'd float snacks and beverages.

how about the Bremerton Ferry? Plenty of parking, low cost for walk ons, and if you get bored you can get off on the otherside?
I may be thrown overboard and forfeit the free return ticket. :|

what's the frequency of the seattle area meetups? Is this thread the best way to keep up to date or is there a different communication channel off the board?

Based on my schedule so far this year, I'm looking to transition the Seattle Chapter Organizer role to someone. If organizing and leading the meetings sounds fun to you, please reach out to me at seattlebogleheads@gmail.com. Include a short note about what led you to Bogleheads and why you're interested in organizing. Thanks!

I'm tempted to apply for the organizer position but wanted to ask the other Seattle area folks a few questions before I do.

I live/work on the far east side so downtown Seattle is a challenge for me, is continuing to meet in Bellevue a problem?

Would anyone be interested in a Friday lunch meeting on a regular basis?

I live eastside also, so Bellevue or even a little more east is desired. A meeting in Seattle is not worth the travel to me unless there is a special guest speaker. A regular lunch meeting every month or every other month or even quarterly would be of interest. Friday works great.

Seattle traffic and parking cost is not BH.

Eastside. Perhaps make it in downtown Bellevue which, while the traffic is horrendous, at least has parking and a bus terminal for Seattle residents.
