Hello St Louis under snow!!!!

Just a reminder of a January meeting on the 19th at the Trainwreck Saloon in Westport.

https://www.trainwrecksaloon.com/

The meeting is casual with like minded people sharing successes and failures.

I have not reserved any specific space, but per epicahab, it is a laid back place and 1:00 p.m.

should work as long as Football doesn't interfere with the timing. I can try to reserve some space

with a headcount.

Let me know here if you plan to attend.

Best to all,

Dan

Thanks, Dan.

We are good on football with no playoff games until Sunday. We might have to keep an eye on the weather.

FYI, our Tampa Bay chapter is using Groups.io (more features than Yahoo or Google email groups) as a communication tool to plan meetings. The basic FREE version is more than adequate for our needs, and you can use the POLL feature to track meeting RSVP's. We set ours up as a PRIVATE group. They also have a paid version ($110/yr) with many more features, including RSVP's, but that's overkill. New (and existing) local chapters might want to check out Groups.io. They even offer a tool to "migrate" members and content from from preexisting Yahoo or Google Groups.

Thanks for the tip, I will see if there is enough interest to start our own Groups.io.

Kristen Cornett on Ch 4 said to "keep checking because the forecast WILL change".
This week's fortune cookie: "Your financial life will be secure and beneficial." So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Something else came up for 1/19, but I hope to attend a future get-together.

They are still calling for snow on Saturday in St Louis. The forecast may change several time before then. but we have decided to
cancel this Saturday's meeting Jan. 19th. We will try to find a date in February that might work at the same location. PM me with
any ideas you have for dates or locations. I am looking forward to meeting the other local Bogleheads and sharing stories.

Thanks, Dan. Probably a good idea if they are calling for 3-5 inches.
