Our club’s title does not limit ourselves to a pure discussion of financial matters, though it’s preeminent, instead it will avail to us the essential logical and pragmatic reasoning in our decision making. If you guys have any sort of interest in making yourself more efficient logically, we welcome you to join our meetings.
