First Saturdays are fine, but when there's double AP running out on Dec 1, what you really want is to do a LAST Saturday event.

Come fill your boots with AP by the water in Punda. Pew, Pew, Pew!!

Same as FS: we'll battle over a small group of portals (mostly in the shade) then maybe retire to a patio for some cross-faction beverages.


Ps, is it my imagination, or are Events working again on G+ mobile? If you don't get this, I guess it's the former.

PPs, we'll meet at the Kolonel Carel Winkel portal. I'll throw a beacon on it.

#IngressFS  : Willemstad

1:00 pm-1:30pm , Meet at the Curacao Bandstand portal in Otrabanda. Say hi to friends and meet new friends. We  add you to a Google Hangout so you can post your screenshot, to register your AP

1:15pm - 1:30pm  A clearing crew will turn nearby portals grey in Kura Hulanda

1:30pm- 2:30pm-  Ingress Bootcamp/ AP gain event.  Conquer, deploy, link and field, take down the opposition's portals and fields, whatever you can do to gain AP

2:30 pm  Take a screenshot showing the time and your AP and post to the Hangout.   

post 2:30pm: general milling around, chatting, cervezas at Rif Fort?.    


Note- this is an ideal opportunity for all new or relatively new plauers to come and get some easy AP and level up, to meet some more experienced players and maybe learn a few tricks, and to have fun blasting, conquering and linking.   You'll want to do some hacking ahead of time so you have plenty of resonators for capturing and deploying, but don't worry about bursters- your higher level team mates will do most of the heavy lifting for you :)

So, we attended the PGA championship in Wisconsin in August.  I booked the tickets for it last year, and booked the hotel for it Sept 1 2014. There were very few hotels left even at that point, as it's a popular event. So we took what we could get- the Microtel by Wyndham, in Fond Du Lac.

In my haste to book, I accidentally spelled my own last name wrong on the booking.  So, rather than show up and be told that I had no reservation in my name, when all the hotels would be full, I cancelled it and immediately rebooked and spelled my name correctly.

The initial booking was confirmed of course, as was the fact that it could be canceled without penalty any time up until 4pm on August 8th, 2015.  I cancelled it on September 1 2014, and got a confirmation of the cancel.

We went to Wisconsin, stayed at the hotel, paid for the hotel, and that was that, until I saw that I had been charged an extra day's stay.   After emailing and waiting for days for a response, I finally got an answer from +Wyndham Hotels and Resorts  customer service people today, telling me

"Thank you for contacting Microtel Customer Care.  On behalf of Microtel, please accept my sincerest apologies for any inconvenience you encountered with our website. The reservation 71234998 was non cancellable and non modifiable.

 Kevin, responses such as yours are critical to our success and can only assist in ensuring we are truly taking care of our guests.  Rest assured your comments will be addressed, and we will use this information to improve our reservation services.

 
We appreciate and wish to retain you as a valued patron."


The problem is, that 71234998  was NOT the reservation I canceled, it was the one I used.   The reservation I cancelled 11 months before the penalty period and was still billed for was 71232641.   The confirmation of the cancellation which you sent me, Wyndham, is 71234378.  All of which I detailed on your contact us page.

I realize the amount of money is not significant. However, the reservation WAS able to be cancelled with no penalty, and WAS cancelled prior to the penalty period. So give me my friggin money back, Wyndham, please and thank you.

Good news, Wyndham's customer service team has reviewed their initial refusal to refund the overcharge and are now mailing me a cheque.

Not sure how very rare these new capsules are lol. Got two so far, and one of the Softbank ultras.

Come on out for a First Saturday event in Willemstad.

We'll meet at the Statue of Wilhelmina portal, battle over the portals in the immediate area and hopefully get lots of AP. If there are any newbies in attendance, we may dial back the portal smashing and do a little tutoring on deploying, attacking and general ingress skills, and why it's even more fun than Pokemon Go.

Afterwards, we'll retire to a shady spot on Wilhelminaplein and have a cold beverage or two..

I started playing #Ingress     on Nov  17, 2012 after successfully mooching an invite from +Joe Philley   . I had failed in my earlier attempt at Ingress Art, but Joe took pity on me anyway.

I made Level 8 by December 14th, which was impressive in those days. We didn't have the portal concentration the kids have today, and we actually had to hump it all over town, in the middle of winter, uphill both ways.  And, I took a week off in the middle there because I was ingressing in bad shoes and ended up with a blister on my heel the size of a golf ball, but still became the first blue A8 in Toronto, to the best of my knowledge.  Followed closely by  +Ralph Uy 

Note the FPS.  That was a fixture of the game until sometime in early summer 2013.  June, maybe.  That, for the youngsters, was how you knew how bad your lag was going to be.  The kids today, with their 6 inch phones and good data connections.. they have no idea.

Introduction
Hi there- first gen G+er here, joined on July 1, 2011 after seeing a flurry of posts about it on the old Google Buzz and begging an invite.

I largely post only to my circles or to my extended circles, though occasionally I do post to public. Why?  Just seems like the thing to do.  So, if you don't see anything "shared with you" when you check out my profile, trust me, I'm a G+'er from way back and on here all the time.

In no particular order, some circles you could put me in include: 
  • All things Android
  • All things tech, including next gen energy solutions
  • The stock market
  • Running/marathons
  • Motorcycles (used to have a 2011 F800ST)
  • Food and cooking (see below)
  • Wine
  • Politics
  • Photography 

in 2012 I did an awesome summer road trip.  Hopped on my F800ST and rode out to Logan Pass, via Mt Rushmore, the Crazy Horse memorial, Custer Battlefields, Wall Drug, the Enchanted Highway, various giant balls of twine and other roadside attractions.   I guess that means you could put me in a goofy kitsch circle as well :)

Oh, and if cooking is your thing, check out my recipe page, where I try to share things that make me go  Yummmm:  https://plus.google.com/b/107346167256278601901/107346167256278601901/posts
 It's stale now, I don't update it since communities got launched, but there are still a ton of great recipes on there

Beautiful private beach/cove with lots of lounge chairs. Even at the height of tourist season, it's never overly busy. The units are well appointed and comfortable

Absolutely gorgeous. Much, much more impressive than Niagara Falls. Waterfalls as far as the eye can see, monkeys, coaties, birds, butterflies. An amazing spot.

The Avila has a decent gym, with yearly memberships available as well as use by hotel guests. It's owned by the Lions Dive people, so dual access to the gym there is possible

Fantastic service, and great food. Our server was lovely - attentive, helpful, worked to our timetable and desire to linger, and was all around fantastic. Then there's the food. It's not all that often that I'm moved to tell the kitchen what a knock out the meal was, but tonight was one of those times. The grilled romaine salad was outstanding, as were the diver scallops and the grouper. The pecan pesto that came with the bread basket was delicious and even the palate cleanser sorbet was packed with flavor. If you are in Savannah, go to Noble Fare. Seriously.
