Lab retreat to Mayne Island

Last Thurs – Sat (Jan 22-24) – some in the lab were able to slip away to Mayne Island, to share their work, brainstorm, play darts and pool, weather a power failure, hike, etc.  Ace reporter Miriam Maan appeared to take photos of everything and everyone, so I suspect that there will be a few snaps shared soon.
