Epic battle on the water today for shard 64! 
It was a beautiful day for a boat ride! Cade and I took the Blue Voodoo Resistance Navy's SS [REDACTED] to Fort Proctor (one of several beautiful, ruinous forts in south Louisiana that is also an Ingress portal - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fort_Proctor).

We arrived just before 7 am - in time to watch the sun rise and to receive an Ingress shard linked up to us from Grand Cayman. The next shard jump was scheduled for noon so we took advantage of the weather and low tide to do a bit of exploring - and surprising no one, Cade snuck in a nap.

Around 11, agent Undaboss joined us and roughly two dozen agents sprung into action on the mainland clearing the way for the noon jump. Our plan was to link from the fort to Indiana and since Ingress links can't cross each other - we had to do significant cleanup to cut across all that land. By 11:45 the path was clear, our link was up, and with no ENL agents around, we decided to sneak an early start back toward the boat launch.

We were almost back to shore when we noticed a curious sight - a man in a suit standing up on a boat passing us going out. It was lucky for us that his clothing was so remarkable because it turned out to be enlightened agent Knyteshadeaux (Robert) with two other NOLA ENL agents. For a brief moment we all looked across at each other - and then the race was ON.

We spun the [REDACTED] around and opened up the throttle. We could hear them ask their captain to step on it. Our boat was slower but their captain was not as familiar with the fort or how to get the agents onto it - by 11:50 an epic 3 on 3 battle had begun. Luckily we had the full strength of the New Orleans Resistance remotely recharging against the attack and we were able to continuously re-shield it and keep the link up. At noon shard 64 successfully jumped to "Rhino Time" at a closed theme park in Indiana and our battle concluded.

After the jump and an IRL handshake we realized our opposing agents were stranded at the fort! They left work and had driven in a hurry to the launch and paid a random fisherman to bring them out there. Luckily for them we were feeling generous and allowed them to join us on our vessel. Unluckily, our vessel is not designed to hold that many agents and Undaboss and I ended up with soaked bottoms before we got very far into our return journey. After a little load adjustment we all made it safely back to dry land, but not quite to dry bottoms. Several of the agents had to quickly get back to work or to family obligations with no chance to change out of wet and muddy clothes.

It was certainly one of the most hilarious Ingress operations I've participated in and probably in the top 5 most exhilarating NOLA Ingress battles. How often do you get to have a full on boat race to a falling-down, flooded fort to fight over an object that only exists virtually?

If you're interested in having epic Ingress adventures with us - join the Resistance (blue team!) and we'll plug you in with the crew here locally or wherever you live/play. :)

I apparently started some kind of religious flame war on Facebook today. My relatives are having a meltdown and I noticed that all of the positive and rational posts on the thread have come from my +Ingress friends. People often ask, "why are you so into that game?" It's not a game - it's life with my tribe. <3

November 13, 2016 brought us another amazing Mimosa Day in Crescent Park and the charity chosen by the Blue Voodoo was Animal Rescue New Orleans.

While mimosas were served by our local and visiting BRRN reps to all our visitors, special packs of 3 collector cards were handed to all agents who showed us that they donated $5 or more to ARNO. As last year, we also collected cash for people who didn't have time to donate online.

Between the cash collected for that, the money Blue Voodoo would have paid for the cards (themselves donated by a generous agent), the extra money left over from the BRRN agents who funded the champagne and orange juice and whatever was in the tip jar, agents directly raised $652.51 - that's not counting the money we encouraged agents to donate directly on ARNO's web site.

This was a great follow on to the successful inaugural Mimosa Day in 2015 where we sent over $800 to Save our Cemeteries. Mimosa Day was conceived in 2015 as a way to show great hospitality, carry on the tradition of #MissionsForGood and kick off Mission Day in style.

Since we still have card sets and a few buttons and stickers left over from last year, if you send me a screenshot of YOUR donation of $5 or more directly to ARNO, I will send you a 2016 Mimosa Day 3-card set PLUS a bonus 2015 Mimosa Day button and sticker.
