Hello Diehards:

We are pleased to announce that Diehards VI will be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Alexandria, VA, starting at 2PM on Sunday, June 10, 2007 and ending at noon on Tuesday, June 12, 2007. Alexandria, VA is just across the river from Washington DC, and is minutes from Ronald Reagan National Airport. The Washington DC Metro subway system is just across the street from the Embassy Suites, and provides easy access to area attractions. There is a local Dash Bus that shuttles to close historical sites, shopping and restaurants.

Our special guests for Diehards VI include our mentor, Jack Bogle, authors Bill Bernstein and Rick Ferri, Duke University Economics Professor Ed Tower, and Morningstar's Sue Stevens. Jack Bogle is attending specifically to meet with the Bogleheads, so this is a unique and rare opportunity.

We'll start with a wine and cheese reception on Sunday, meet with our panel of distinguished guests all day Monday with a lunch buffet, and a plated dinner (with open cash bar) on Monday evening. We'll wrap up the meeting on Tuesday morning with additional time to meet with our authors.

The registration fee for this meeting is $189 per person. This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE since we must sign a contract with the hotel and guarantee them a minimum level of revenue. This non-refundable fee covers the day and a half of meetings, the reception, lunch, and dinner on Monday, as well as the meeting room rental and audio equipment we'll need for the question and answer sessions. We ask that you make your reservation and send your registration fee in no later than Feb. 23rd so we can secure the hotel banquet facilities during what is a peak tourist season in the Washington, DC area.

To make your reservation for the meeting, please send an email with your Morningstar login name, your real name, and your contact information to DiehardsVI@yahoo.com ASAP. Ed Rager, who is the coordinator of the Washington DC area chapter of the Diehards, will respond with details regarding where to send your non-refundable registration fee. Once your payment is received, he will advise out-of-town Diehards of the procedure for reserving a room at the Embassy Suites Hotel at a discounted rate of $199 per night (versus the regular rate of $269 per night). The Embassy Suites is holding a limited number of suites at this special rate. This reduced rate also includes a full breakfast each morning and a Manager's wine reception each evening. The suites sleep four, for those of you who are planning to bring family members

We look forward to another exciting time meeting with Jack Bogle and our author friends, as well as seeing each of you again, and meeting some of you for the first time.

Mel, Taylor & Ed Rager
