Post by: Read the Footnotes on December 06, 2017, 06:14:00 AM
Several board members from the recent Boston meet ups are meeting this Saturday at a time and location more convenient for people who don't work downtown.

Saturday, December 9 at 9 am at the Needham Panera Bread at the Highland exit on Route 128/95.
120 Highland Avenue Needham, MA 02494

Have fun and stay safe.

Thanks, Jurgis

Most predictions I have seen say that the snow won't have much of an impact until later in the day. My impression is that as currently forecast the precipitation should not impact people who are local. The forecast does seem to vary from north to south. Those who had planned to come from further away, such as New Hampshire, or the south shore would be smart to check the weather in the morning, because the snow might impact your trip home.

Looks like the weather forecast still says the storm won't get going until after noon in the Needham area. Needham accumulations forecast to be 1-3 inches.

Some people coming from further away, like New Hampshire have cancelled due to weather. For those of us that are closer to Needham, the weather will likely not be an issue.

January 20, 2018 Boston Meet Up

The last meet up was a success, so we are planning another. The room in the back left corner is very quiet, so we hope you will find us there.

Saturday, January 20 at 9 am at the Needham Panera Bread at the Highland exit on Route 128/95.
120 Highland Avenue Needham, MA 02494

The weather for this weekend looks much better than last time, and we still had a nice turn out of dedicated investors last time even though it snowed.

I am looking forward to see everyone who has already responded.

I would love to join a Boston meet up. Just to throw out a date and time, want to shoot for the same Panera (seems like its worked well in the past) on Sat, February 2nd 9am:

Panera Bread
120 Highland Avenue Needham, MA 02494
http://locations.panerabread.com/ma/needham/120-highland-avenue.html

I could also meet during the week (I work from home), but I assume weekends work best for most folks...

Might work for me on weekends. I live approx. 45min away from this location. I assume this would be a breakfast or lunch meetup?
Title: Re: Boston Meet Up

Great!

Just to confirm. Let's plan on meeting for breakfast/coffee at Panera Bread (120 Highland Avenue, Needham, MA 02494) at 9am on Saturday 2/2/19.

I created an informal sign-up list here:

Feel free to add your name if you are planning on attending / interested in attending future Boston area meet-ups and we can use it as a distribution list going forward.

Hey everyone, looking forward to the meet-up this Sat (2/2/19) at 9am.

Looks like we are going to have 4 maybe 6 folks join. I will be the bald guy with the beard   :D

As a reminder, we will meet at Panera Bread (120 Highland Avenue, Needham, MA 02494) at 9am on Saturday 2/2/19.

Sounds like (from the thread) there is a room in the back left corner which is very quiet. We can plan to meet there.

Oh when I'm back in Boston I would like to join.  Sadly it will probably be for only a couple months starting May.  Will you keep posting updates on this site, or should I sign up on a list in case this gets moved off of CoBF?

Nice chatting with everyone yesterday. Let's do this again next month.

Great meet up. Good turn-out (we had 9 people turn up).

I would be up for doing it again next month if people are interested. Sat, March 2 or March 9?

 ^ Either of the dates look good to me. I agree it was a great meetup and I like the location, as it is easily accessible for us suburbanites as well.
