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.

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.

I was interested in meeting, but never heard about it until now----and months ago mentioned I would like to attend a future get-together. Noticed the button to get a notification when a reply is posted, so hope to get info on rescheduled meeting when posted.

This post was copied from another post concerning an upcoming discussion on Larry Swedroe's new book. I have read the book and found it
very helpful from a retiree's perspective. It also has great information for those prior to retirement.

For anyone interested in the St. Louis, Mo. area - Larry will be speaking about the new retirement book at the St. Charles County Library - Spencer Road Branch @ 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2019.

Address: 427 Spencer Road - St. Peters, MO. 63376-2420
Phone: (636) 441-0794

The announcement is kind of buried in the library's calendar - blurb: Achieving the retirement life of your dreams requires planning. To support the steps you’re taking, Buckingham’s Larry Swedroe and Kevin Grogan have co-authored “Your Complete Guide to a Successful & Secure Retirement,” which they will discuss. As an added bonus, one of the book’s contributors, Katie Keary, will address retirement concerns that are specific to women. Bring your questions and be part of this lively discussion.

I happened to be at an author talk their on Tues. and they announced upcoming author-talks.
