Pre-BGC2013VIC

 

Although tickets aren't required, I'm organizing a small dinner the night before the BGC2013VIC (April 9, 6pm-ish) for those in town early for the conference.  But it will require a RSVP so that I can find an appropriate spot at a restaurant.  So, let me know well in advance if you'd like to attend.

 

Pre-FFH Dinner Drinks

 

No RSVP needed for the meeting on the 10th before the dinner.  It's first come first served.  ;D

Here is a story about parking:

 

Buffett talked in funny terms about 1967 acquisition of National Idemnity for $7 million. It was known that something would set off Jack Ringwalt, and every year for “about 15 minutes” he wanted to sell. Munger kidded that everyone referred to it as “Jack is in heat”. One day, Munger friend called and said “Jack's ready”. (laughter in auditorium). Meeting was in Charlie's LA office and Jack was 10 minutes late because he was looking for parking meter that still had free time left. Buffett said “I knew right then that Jack was my kind of guy”. Deal got done but Buffett could feel Ringwalt was remorseful and was looking for excuse to kill deal. Jack said “I suppose you want audited financial statements?” Buffett knew that if he asked for them, Jack would kill deal so he said “nope”. This went on for a while but eventually deal was closed and ultimately Ringwalt realized he still ran the business.

Buffett_Groupie, maybe if you are running late, when you come in, Prem will buy your company from you.  Better think of a price!  ;D  Cheers!
