November 2016 Meeting Cancelled

Due to the Tawa facility being used for Business Continunity purposes by the WCC, we are not able to meet there this week.

We will look at how we can reschedule the meeting and the speakers.

We do not have a December Q-Bit, so most likely we will not be in communication until Janurary 2017. Have a safe and happy Christmas.
