After a one-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Wardle's once again hosted the annual necstlab BBQ cookout in October 2021. (We use the colloquial bbq to mean “cooking and eating outside”.) As per usual, they arranged fabulous weather, excellent foodstuffs, and invited the entire group of researchers & staff & local alums (plus their close family members) to join in this gathering. People traveled from near & far, via train and bike and car, to participate in the day and everyone was merry and gay. Here are a few photos of the group, taken from Rich Li's socially-distant drone, flying high above.
