Sprecher's in Madison has closed permanently. I have not heard about a Dec 2019 meeting. Any admin comment on any upcoming meetings?
We meet on the ODD numbered months, so no meeting in December.

The next one is Saturday, January 11, at 12:30 p.m. at the Middleton Public Library.

Join the Madison Bogleheads for our next meeting on:

Saturday, January 11

at the Middleton Library

from 12:30 to 2:30 (note that this is later in the day than the hours when we usually meet)

Discussion subjects (thanks to Larry):

"In our first meeting of 2019, we each presented our portfolio performance of the previous year as well as some idea of our asset allocation and a general idea of how we handled our investments.
Would this be a good annual discussion? (Yes it would! Let's do it.)

If there is time I would like to get some feedback on the idea of how to invest “Once you have won the game” Bill Bernstein has approached this in an interview."

Also note that for our Saturday, March 14 meeting we will be gathering at the Alicia Ashman Library, 733 N. High Point Rd., from 1 to 3 pm.

The Middleton Library is unavailable in March.

Remember, all are invited. Bring your friends. See you then!
