was a great success we had lots of people attend including partners and children. The weather was cold southerly winds and a bit of sun. Nonetheless we went to AlexPotanin
's house for a great fabulous BBQ lunch. We had some alumni attend including AngelaMartin
. Also of note it was farewell to KeithCassell
who submitted his PhD thesis prior to the BBQ and will leave NZ in the new year.
