Meetings On Hold

Unfortunately for the time being we are putting our meetings on hold.

We will be resuming meetings some time in the New Year, maybe in a new time and place.

The email will still be monitored and we have a private Facebook group that anyone is welcome to join. To receive an invitation send an email to
