IMO the chch national convention was a complete success...

firstly I'd like to thank footsie for coming out with the whole idea, and starting the "sharetrader meeting to talk shares thread"...
id also like to thank serpie for helping to organise the even last night...and everyone that turned up which put the event in a league of its own, and by doing that claiming the rights to the first national convention if there is ever one...:D

the Stock Xchange was good to us in giving us free food and also by giving us 15 free complimentry drink vouchers which I distributed amongst the thirsty pack....

I have a couple of things we could put in the pipeline, including going to the NZO annual general meeting this year as a crew, and going to upstream energy conference next year is Auzzie... but I willnot be calling the shots and it is up to the group to add other ideas because it is a two way street...
someone mentioned we could meet auckland STraders before or after the AGM...

others mentioned a meet in August, and one poster suggested a lunch in after Tuis producing... it is up to CHCH representals to follow up on your suggestions...
have a think about my input, and I will get back to yous lata...

I think that last night's turnout means that the ChCh / Rangiora / Oiler2 chapter warrants it's own thread, especially if it's to be the first of many. And already discussion of a few "field trips". Excellent.

It will be a busy week following up the contacts made and the prospects discussed.

I felt a bit left out by not holding NZ Oil and Gas. Might have to buy a handful so I know what everyones talking about. I heard somewhere that you need to hold a certain amount of shares to attend an AGM. Is there any truth to that?

Also, can someone please tell me the name of the book that Murph donated?

Oiler
27-05-2007, 06:55 PM
Great night Serpie
The book was called Twilight in the Desert.
Lets party again

Serpie
27-05-2007, 07:12 PM
Cheers Oiler. Great to meet you.

airedale
27-05-2007, 07:41 PM
Hi all, yes a very generous gesture from Murph. The author is Matthew Simmons a Houston banker who who works in the oil industry.
Well done Serpie and Shrewd.
That dolphin didn't drink much despite the free drinks organised by Shrewdy.

Serpie
27-05-2007, 09:44 PM
The dolphin still hasn't come home Airedale. I think he scored!

Serpie
28-05-2007, 06:25 PM
Great enthusiasm from the ChCh attendees. We'll all be cheering on NOG this week so we'll have an excuse to get together soon and take up Bermuda's kind offer.

Shrewd Crude
01-06-2007, 04:55 PM
chch representals...listen up....
following up on from Bermuda's kind gesture....

I to am going to stick my neck out...
If NZO doesnot HIT $1.30 on or before the end of July then I will buy everyone at the CHCH meeting a beer...this is a 24% target....
beers would be distributed at the proposed August meeting...
This gives the TUI program enough time to build up flow rates to the 50k target...
and allows for a week of stable flowrates....
and room for delays...

my necks going on the chopping board...

I'm sorry, but we will NOT be beaten for enthusiasm by the Wellington Chapter, who I see are starting to plan their next meeting.

I believe that Shrewd Crude was, this very day, negotiating with The Stock Exchange for an even better deal than last time.

All members of the ChCh / Rangiora / Oiler2 chapter please pencil in a meeting for around the second week of August to coincide with the next release of quarterlies.

Exact time and date (to suit the majority) to be confirmed.

Serpie ol son

We aren't in competition with you, in fact i'm here to extend an invitation to any Chch people interested in attending the next Wgtn event.

Will likely be at either St Johns Heineken Hotel or the Wellington Brewery, both on the harbour & have the NZX headquarters in between.

May make an effort to attend a Chch event later in the year ;)

Serpie
13-06-2007, 10:33 PM
Cheers Shasta,

And likewise we Cantabrians would welcome any traders from other regions who are interested in attending our humble gathering.

Shrewd Crude
13-06-2007, 11:21 PM
Serpie and other distinguished chch peoples...
Im in for August...
Talked with owner of Stock Xchange and we will get the same deal...
a free drink each, cheese crackers, nibbles, chips...
unless somebody else recommends another venue, then we should go back to the S X...

Go NZO

Oiler,
Be very careful.
The whole world is now focusing on oil following the IEA report.You had better negotiate a price for the Magnum now!!!

Oiler

Indeed the world is focussing on oil with or without the IEA report ! Lets enjoy the ride..

Shrewd,
you bet the CHC National convention was a success, and you betta believe the next one in August will be an even bigger success.

Lets enjoy the ride

Serpie

I dont think I'll be able to make this one guys. Looks like I'll be in Roto-vegas that weekend with the family.

That's one of the reasons that I'm attending the Wellington meeting - need my fix!

Gutted that I'll miss it, but looking forward to representing the ChCh chapter (with SC and O-2) in the Capital.

If you see my dolphin can you tell him that I miss him.

As the National Convention draws closer and closer it is time to remind everyone to make there way to the StockXchange Cashel St. Christchurch at 5pm Saturday 11th Aug. organised by my fellow Amigo .. Shrewd Crude.

Everyone welcome...lets see if we can hit 30 attendees this time.

Welcome Shasta from the WGN contingent.

Lets see how many Aucklanders we can get !!;)

Thanks Airedale for reserving a hole for my walking stick but have been invited out for 3 day fishing trip in the Sounds so regret will not be attending Convention - apologies please.
Just think if it was the weekend after what about scallops, blue cod , crayfish for supper let alone schnapper which is currently being caught at Durville Is.
Oh well thats the breaks and wanted to sought out Shrewd Crude as obviously little time being put into study and much time into posts all over the place and fear the taxpayer not getting its moneys worth.
Cheers

Hi Rottweiler, a three day fishing trip wins hands down every time. That would almost make me as happy as catching a ten-bagger in the market.

I am sure there will be lots of heated good spirited discussions

Can we get a tally ??

As you know Oiler I won't be able to make this one due to my family trip to Rotovegas this weekend, and therefore had to travel to the Windy City to get my ST Meeting fix.

Good on you for taking up the reins and driving this one. Let's see how much steel there is in the Canterbury contingent during these tough times.

If Grizz Wylie was a trader, would he give up now? NO!

If Fergie McCormick was on ST, would HE be at the meeting? YOU BET YA!

It's cold and it's wet. We're behind on the scoreboard. Are we going to front up in the second half, or are we going to stay in the changing rooms?

Let's hear from you Canterbury traders!

you are right, lets show the country what the Cantabs are made of. Fight to win !!!

Lets get as many from around the country to come visit the Garden City !

This jafa is going to CHC to join a winning team......... go Red and Black

On a more serious note.

We are facing turbulent times in our markets so look forward to many discusions about what/where we invest in for the future from here on.

Looks like we are going to get a good attendance

Oiler,

A quick browse of the thread has thrown up the following list of attendees so far:

Airedale
AJ
Bermuda
Kiwiwim
Lion
Mccollr
Murph
Noodle
Oiler
Port Hills
Rottweiller
Sideshow Bob
Shrewd Crude
Trackers
Upside Umop
Xpress

Still to confirm (but we know you'll be there!)
Brut
The Plunger
KiwiBear
(Apologies if I've missed anyone from the first meeting)

Some of the finest people you could ever hope to meet, drinking away their sorrows and swapping war stories.

So if there are any others please come along and say hello. Hopefully we'll have a few more Cantabrians, and also perhaps some southern representatives.

KiwiBear
06-08-2007, 09:26 PM

Or is it just like a party

Serpie
06-08-2007, 09:38 PM
Gidday KiwiBear,

The Stock Exchange is a pub just back from the corner of Cashel and Manchester St.

We had about 15 or 16 there last time, and half filled the place. Just wander in and go up to any intelligent looking person and there's a fair chance that they will be a sharetrader.

It's very informal. Just a bunch of like minded people getting together for a beer and a chat.

4pm this Saturday. I'll add you to the list.

Shrewd Crude
06-08-2007, 09:43 PM
Kiwibear,
meeting is in the StockXchange at 4pm its on chasel street in central city.. everyone gets a free drink on entry...
Anyone got ideas for discussion topics, presentations?

I can confirm that Murph is coming!
Sideshow bob, when it gets dark on the ski field you can cruize down to the meeting...

Guys it looks like we are going to have another successful National Convention in Christchurch this weekend.

I am sure there will be a lot of 'fast talk' about what is going on in the market and dare I say without our fellow Amigo Serpie, or as he is also known as Sir Pee. Not allowed to say on this forum why he is called Sir Pee !!!

Enjoy your time away Serpie... we will miss you.

Serpie
07-08-2007, 08:26 PM
You're lucky that I won't be there Oiler - I see from your disclosure that you've abandoned my beloved DYL, so our evening would undoubtably have ended in fistycuffs!

Thank you to SC for changing the thread title - very charitable of you!

Welsome to Rif-Raf and Clips - looking forward to meeting you at the next one.

Looks like Brut can't make this one, and I'll chase up The Plunger tomorrow (where are you A-Mc?)

Shrewd Crude
07-08-2007, 08:57 PM
Sir P....
I am telling the truth here....
I didnot change the name of the thread...

1..... someone was out to get you
2..... You would leave a bar tab for us to find

Sorry SC,

False accusation. Me thinks that Vince may be responsible in that case, but I will rise to the challenge.

PS - You may wish to change your last post regarding The Plunger, who is most certainly not a "her" (unless there's something you're not telling us Andy?)

Shrewd Crude
07-08-2007, 11:57 PM
SIR PEE
I have meet the Plunger b4 and I am aware that he is not a she...
It was a simple mistake...
Her in that sentence doesnot make sense, and the R button is right next to the E button...
so I must have pushed them both at the same time...
so my apologises...
just aswell as I have never made that mistake b4... I will be let off the hook just this time...

A1 Oiler,

Nothing as imaginative as a treasure hunt I'm afraid. Just fulfilling my obligations as detailed in the thread title.
I believe that Mr S Crude has organised the second round, so there's no excuse for not staying for at least 2 beers.

I'm fully invested again, so if you guys can stop the market going into meltdown while I'm away that would be great.

What a great meet. Really interesting to see all the faces and to learn about the various trading styles.(jotted down a lot of notes) What really got me was the passion some members have for various sectors and stocks. A great bunch of people. A special thanks to the hard working members who put this together. I had another function to attend and would have liked to stay longer. I am a starter for any future meetings.

Yes an excellent social. Lots of interesting ideas floated. A of couple of drinks and a few snacks.....excellent.! I even noticed an Abba video playing at one stage.:D Rod, that book was "Pit Bull" by Martin { Bull } Schwartz. It may be available from Amazon. Cheers, all.

Shrewd Crude
12-08-2007, 09:05 PM
I had a great time...
it was another great event that has come about only because of the internet, everyone had their own storys and their own paths they took... and it is great to mix and associate with a bunch of people that are achievers...
the National convention will evolve over time, and hopefully next time we will have some activitys, special guests, prizes etc...

Oiler

Have just arrived back in Auckland after a great weekend in the Garden City...two days of perfect warm weather !!

I think this from nccollr sums the Convention up pretty well.

It is interesting to see now after two meetings in Christchurch how people seem to open up more and more and to see very lively discussions going on in the various groups as people tended to move from group to group and add there 2 cents worth.

You better believe we will have another meeting ....... Nov? we need to let Shrewdy finish his study and get a pass before we have another one.

He arrived late but had a legitimate late pass.

The next one we will have the other amigo (Serpie) and his favorite dolphin. :)

November sounds good for the next one. We'll have to get some feedback on a suitable date a bit closer to the time, because we've got Cup Day / Show Day in the first couple of weeks that we have to either work around or work in.

Looking forward to hearing some more details on this weekend's one. I'm glad to see that the market slump hasn't dampened the enthusiasm of the ChCh contingent.

Serpie,
you have just bought forward an idea...
how about we have some sort of event at cup day?...

hire a box or whatever...
its just a suggestion... im happy to go back to the stock Xchange if it comes to nothing....
....
No doubt I will be at cup day (chchs biggest event of the year)... look for the guy in an opp shop suite holding and drinking straight from a jug....

Hey KB, not being one of the stragglers do you mind elaborating on what your codes are? To me they sounds like a bust sizes and a nice selection if that's the case, however I'm sure it's less interesting but nonentheless more useful than that...

Cup day is a great day, quite correct... I missed Lindauer Lawn tickets last year, it wont happen again!

Sorry couldn't make it guys, came down with the flu quite badly - Work made me do four return trips to auckland in just over a week so someone on one of those planes has a lot to answer for! :(

I think that too many people (including myself) have their own Cup Day traditions that they would be hesitant to give up.
I was thinking more about avoiding Cup Day amd Show Day because of other commitments. It's a busy time of the year.

How about we pencil in Saturday 3rd November at 4pm. It's before the racing carnivals start, and tucks in neatly behind the next quarterly results.

The other option is increasing the frequency of meetings. Anyone keen for 6 a year rather than 4?

People have mentioned special guests / presentations etc. I'd like to suggest that Shrewd Crude does a presentation on "How To Upset Posters on HC".

first of all... thanks for putting on some drinks serpie.....
1....no problem about cup day, as I said I will be there anyway opp shop suite and all drinking from a jug..... HEY there aint no such thing as other commitments on Cup day...... only mad men do not go to that event...

2....ive got no problem about that, lets see how others feel about saturday 3rd at 4pm...?

3....the presentation would be over before it even started .. its quite amazing though, RRS has a big following over at HC, and posters here were the complete opposite...
I loved bagging RRS and its now down 25% since I started...

Serpie
14-08-2007, 03:56 PM
No worries SC,

I see that you've got your own thread title on HC on the NWE pages. Have you been banned from there?

Perhaps you could do a presentation on RRS? If anyone can sell that you can.

Shrewd Crude
14-08-2007, 04:24 PM

I have not been banned... got suspended last week....
....
No I got into a bit of a spate with a few HC RRS'ers because I down ramped their stock because it looked awful... and they are doing anything possible shut me down and get me to go away...
...
I dont know if you remember one poster came here to ST and started new threads for RRS,
another poster tried to dig up all my personal details...

that poster on NWE started a thread title with my name to scaremonger HC NWE'ers after I sold a few NWE's yesterday...(well im still actually 1st in cue at 26.5)....bought some CUE...
...
that poster got particularly mad when I laughed at him because sp of RRS has fallen from above 90c to now 70c in 3 weeks (and did touch $1 in the last few weeks)....
he was enraged when I went, "haha"....
haha....

Good day all,

As our friend Oiler has pointed out, we need to finalise a date for the next ChCh meeting, as it is a busy time of the year.

Key dates for the Canterbury region around this time are:
Labour Day - Monday 22/10/07
Cup Day - Tuesday 13/11/07
Show Day - Friday 16/11/07

So, how about Saturday November 2nd at 4pm?
Same place?

The Wellington and Auckland events are taking off, and looking to take our national crown, so let's get in behind this one.

How's that date for everyone?

You have said Nov 2nd which is a Friday which actually would suit me fine instead of Saturday the 3rd.

Saturday the 3rd would be ok but Friday for me would be better (golf etc on Saturday )

Did you really mean the 3rd??)

Serpie

oiler,
the story of RRS goes like this...
Redzone started a thread here called "Serious oil play"-... instantly I had to look at this new oil pick because of the title of the thread... Lizard came out and asked for my opinion on a $7 valuation of the company when The share was trading at 95cents...So I stood up and said the company sucked, and the valuation was foney...
Ive since had to standup for my beliefs on RRS ever since....
....
.... I kept on seeing RRS on top 10 postings over at HC, it was a hit stock over there... so I had a go at the company and have stood up for my views ever since over tat HC......
I told them that the SP would get dumped and it fell 50% in a short time.... Also, about 1-2weeks ago, I said the options (RRSO) would be worthless... and rrso has since capiculated, even though those posters with all the inside Info told me otherwise.......
.... Over at HC it was something like 1 vs 100...me vs the pack... And I stood up and gunned them all down... Theres some special email group called RUM that have been looking to dig up Dirt on me, and snooping because they think im a paid downramper... so I disclosed RRS to be dump trucked on the bottom of my post here so that they would see it...:D....
.....
I actually bought my first parcel of shares during the week... Bought some CUE....

After personally touring the other events, Ive come to my unbiased opinion that we still hold the NC honours, but it could be taken off us if Auckland gets another meeting raging after the last one turned out rather successful...so make sure you turn up to the next NC event, regardless if yourve missed previous events or not... bring a mate if you like... first drink is free as per usual...

SC the Wellinton meeting was a bigger success than the last meeting, but CHC can relax for the moment, you still have the National Convention Title but you cannot afford to rest on your laurels or Auckland will take it off you :D:D

There were a few new interesting faces like Mosteph,Stephen,TSB,Joey? besides Lakeys,Shasta,Tolouse and Whiteheron and of course not to forget the Mattyroo who is now going to join the Amigos and be another roving ambassador ;)

All in all a great evening guys..... thanks to all the attendees and as Stephen has said "thanks to Vince" for his contribution to the bar. It all went down well Vince. :)

It will remind those who don't go online regularly and may attract new members at the same time.

Yes a great night but we do need a quieter venue.

I have got all the picks which will become effective say 1 November 2007 and will be performance reviewed at our next meeting.

I told my Bro last night to invest in them all and that he would make at least 15% on his money within 4 months. We have some serious brains and experience in this group.

I am happy to post all our picks on this thread but if anyone is not happy about their pick being divulged let me know before I post them on Monday. Thanks for the ride home Rif Raf and the book to read is the World is Flat by Thomas L Friedman. You would really enjoy it. Cheers

I agree the venue was very noisy this time, maybe because it was Friday night and a later start. Good to see another new face "Umop" and to catch up with the old stalwarts of Christchurch.

Got away just after 9.30 rather knackered but I shall be at the next one. I have a book to donate as a spot prize. "How to figure out Company Accounts".
I will also crank up the meet up site as well once the a venue and date has been decided.

It certainly got a lot louder after 8pm, but I suppose it was Friday night, so that's to be expected.
I'm thinking that for the next meeting (maybe early in February to again tie in with the quarterlies?) we could move back to a Saturday afternoon, and maybe get out of the centre of town. There's some nice beer gardens around, and that time of the year it may be nice to sit outside and get some fresh air.

Rude Crude!

I haven't mate. I was thinking about having it a bit sooner in February. Maybe around the 9th. But I'm not sure when Waitangi Day is this year. We've also got to consider our out-of-town amigos.

As for a venue - I'm thinking that, if it's a Saturday arvo, then somewhere with an outside option would be the go. Somewhere central, where we could go inside if it's crap weather.

Any suggestions from others would be greatly appreciated. Failing that I'll post some options later in the week, and see what people think.

Looking forward to it as always.

How about the 16th or the 9th. I would prefer the 16th but will go with the majority.

I think having it outside is a great idea Serpie. How about the Dux delux they have quite a lot of space although Sat afternoon/evening gets busy over there. We could go to Pegasus Bay winery.....hahaha.

I will be there either day !!!

Hi Team,

Yip Im keen for Feb, was hoping for the 16th, but looks like the 9th is it.
I will be there hopefully, but will have to leave early as its my mothers birthday party that day too, but time not confirmed for that yet.

I have "the book" to pass on to someone else at the meeting too.
I havent finished reading it, but it is certainly interesting.

See ya Feb 9th.

The Dux is a great spot guys.

Lets see how many "out of towners" we can round up this time in order for CHC to be able to take the National Convention title back from Auckland.

Tricha now that you are back on the coast how about making the journey over the hill to the big schmoke. Would be great to meet you "guru"

Lets start the ST year with a bang at the DUX in Christchurch

Hey rotweiller,
There are two things that are most important to me...
a) making positive returns, specifically beating market index returns...
b) Threads that I open/stocks that I pick and discuss performing as expected...
....
Share comp picks comes in 3rd....Sure I would have liked to have done better Last year.. It was My first year in any comp and I took on two U stocks after I'd seen U stocks explode in late 2006...
for the comp, one fell 80%, the other around 50%...
This year I have picked 4 oilers I feel strong about, and One of the U's again...
all the best for your 4 day duty, I know where Id rather be...

I'd encourage all to come along to these meetings. They're always friendly, and very casual, and there's a mix of ages, experience levels and interests.

It's great putting faces to names, and discovering that even the gurus are just normal, enthusiastic people.

And please don't be concerned if you haven't mad it to any of the previous get-togethers. I've been to a couple and still haven't got to talk to everyone. There's new faces each time.

Hey, it's great to meet other posters. See you there.

Have done a quick analysis of our Chch guys picks effective 1 Nov 2007 to today.

Not looking too flash. Only 5 of us out of 13, Kiwibear (AWE ), Shrewdy ( CUE ), Lion (VPE ) , Upside ( PPP ) and Bermuda ( BOW ) are in positive territory.

Overall up about 1%

Hopefully we can see a big improvement by Feb 9th.

Time to start taking a head count to see who are going to be at the Dux on Sat evening.

Christchurch is struggling to hold the title for "Natioanl Convention" Auckland matched the best Christchurch attendance at the Dec meet.

Time for the Cantabs to stand up and be counted.

I am sure there will be lots of sad tales to tell about the present market and where everyone thinks it is going to go.

SC the guru is going to be there, along with Bermuda and all the other regular supporters. There will be free drink for all the new attendees ...:)

I wont be able to make to the ChCh meeting Shrewdy - I'm saving my money to go to the Auckland meeting and throw tomatoes at MacDaddy.

Just kidding - I'll be there!

And you're right - the Auckland meeting only got started because we loaned them a few of our members to kickstart them.

So far confirmed we have:
Bermuda
Oiler
Noodle
Shrewd
Serpie

so oil/gas is well represented already.

Where are all of the other regulars?

And also we'd like to see a few more new faces along this time. Anyone that's not sure about what goes on please PM me if you'd rather and I can answer any questions you may have.
We're meeting at the Dux this time, which is quite a bit bigger, so I can also give you my cellphone number to make sure that you can find us on the day. Or I can take along another inflattable dolphin if that makes us easier to identify? I've got heaps of them (dont ask).

Bermuda thanks for the generous offer for the next meeting.

Serpie I had to think for a moment .."what the hell is Malai Kofta :confused:

Great night Christchurch.....

Great to see that the Chch ST gathering has had some positive feedback.

I know how good it is to meet up with people of like minds (Sharemarket stuff, I mean). We all have extreme levels of knowledge of the Sharemarket, from knowing buggar all to the masters of the trade. And everyone is always made to feel so welcome, no matter where across the spectrum you fit.

So, for those who have never been to one of these gatherings, I say, (I steal this from Nike) JUST DO IT!!!!

Aucks..... we have to start planning the next one.....

Hey NC'ers
Our past CHCH national convention meeting venue encountered an incident with Cricketing hero Jesse Ryder on Saturday night... He was quoted as saying (from An undisclosed newspaper today) " I became aware of The Stock Exchange after local CHCH sharetraders threw raging parties there" unquote...he went on further but did go on to say, "this place goes off"... the reporter replied, "what do you mean?, are you talking about your finger"

Good evening Mainlanders,

I was speaking to a couple of the attendees at the Auckland meeting last night and we may have some special guests for the next ChCh meet. Oiler's always keen of course, but Mattyroo may also be floating around mid-May, so we need to get our dates sorted to give them the best chance of attending.

I think Matty's away later in May, so how is Saturday the 17th of May? Specifically for you Bermuda, since it's at your house!

(Crusaders vs Highlanders 19.35pm 17/05/08)

Yes this looks okay. We can stay on at my place and finish the oysters and keg and watch the game on my new big screen. No problem. Should be fun.

I was going to go to the game but I think we could have a good time watching it at home
together. And then the younger ones can hit the town! ( with me of course!! )

So let's go for May 17th 4.00pm at 99 Puriri Street Riccarton Christchurch.

I'll be there of course Shrewdy / Super B.

You should be watching your back in the ASX comp - I'm up 40 places this month, and that was before INL jumped 40% on Friday.

We'll get a bit more organised closer to the time with regard to who brings what to the National Convention, otherwise the lovely Mrs Super B will be up all night baking sausage rolls.

BYO drinks of course, and I'll organise the ice. How much ice does your swimming pool hold B?

Id love to make this one to, I've missed the last two due to stupidity. Hopefully that doesn't rub off on any future stock selections etc! lol..

Will be good to see you guys again, and would you believe Serpie. Am in another flat now, dog allowed, got a settlement payout out of our old flat. The landlords got things wrong would you believe, heh. Things going ok.

Cheers

I'm glad you didn't move into one of my rentals AJ - sounds like you're nothing but trouble!
Just kidding cobber, and it will be great to see you at Bermuda's place.

I was speaking with Shrewd yesterday, and he says he's not joking about bringing a keg, so we'll need a few young fellas to make a dent in it.

What have you let yourself in for Bermuda!
