Happy Holidays, Alameda!

Did Santa bring you an Android phone? Let's get you outside and have fun with it!

Try Ingress, an Augmented Reality game that gets you to explore new places - some right under your nose - and meet new people.

When we last got a look at Alameda in this G+ community, we were defending it from the "Enlightened" (green team) that came over from Oakland, but now we the "Resistance" (blue team)  have some within our borders who didn't get the message. This game works best when there are equal - or near equal numbers of players, both blue and green. We need your help!

Get started in 3 easy steps
1. Install from the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticproject.ingress.
2. Complete the tutorials.
3. Defend Humanity - Join the Resistance!

Operation Blue Angels
March 15, 2014

The Blue Angels are the US Navy's elite corps of fighter pilots, trained in maneuvers that thrill and amaze air show attendees everywhere. [We are not these guys. Not even close.] 

Unfortunately in 2013, The Blue Angels were forced to go on hiatus for the season due to government budget cuts. What did you say? They're back for 2014??  Well then, we'll just have to celebrate the only way we know how... with bacon! [We are very much these guys.]

To commemorate the Blue Angels' return to the skies, multiple Northern California Resistance regions helped create winged formations to cover the airspace above the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. The Blue Angels' first performance was scheduled for the El Centro Air Show at 3pm on March 15 (http://navylifesw.com/elcentroairshow/airshow/schedule). TrogDoor and woolly put the plan in motion: hyperfield from the ocean blue up to Angel's Camp. The appropriate anchors were chosen and teams aligned.

The Anchors
Bodega Head
Point Sur Lighthouse
Copperopolis / Angel's Camp / Murphys

The Op
A team of agents were on leave from the Bay Area and spending the weekend in Santa Cruz and Monterey, checking out the Boardwalk and conveniently touring lighthouses. They took time out from their busy schedule to play some Ingress and make sure the lanes were clear to throw from Angel's Camp to Point Sur.

Meanwhile, more agents were helping out near Travis AFB (Petaluma to Lodi), making sure the lanes were clear from Angel's Camp to Bodega Head.

Preflight checklists were good, and at 1pm, right when the Wings of Blue (not the Blue Angels) were performing, the first links went up from Copperopolis. Cries of "BACON" were heard on channels across the region.

TrogDoor, woolly and DJLancerock then moved from Copperopolis to Angel's Camp to Murphys, throwing more fields to create 8 layers throughout the performance. The final two fields in Murphys were thrown just before 3pm, when the Blue Angels took to the skies. As if on cue, the fields were taken down within minutes of the airshow's end.

Many people logged many hours and miles to make this happen. Several others were recruited on site because they were in the right place at the right time. The success of the whole mission was due to each agent's individual efforts. Bacon, to all of you!

As a footnote (and to make sure the team got some checkpoint credit for their efforts), several returned to re-clear lanes and put up additional layered fields 12 hours later for the 3AM checkpoint.

Wow, that is really neat! Can you add me to the Alameda Resistance Hangout you mentioned in another post? I'm new to Alameda and have been using +Ingress to explore the island! I hope someday I'll be a high enough level to help with this kind of project--my un is Phaxda, just made to level 5 this morning on a very early morning run!

Dead at 214 days. 

My guardian was finally taken out on 2/24/14. It was tucked in a small town in France, where I had no idea a guardian would last. When I went last summer, I dropped any 8s I could spare, and one by one they either decayed or were snuffed out.

This one lived on. The caretakers who happened on it first bumped it to L7, so it wasn't hiding, by any means. But then they took a liking to it and kept charged for 7 months! Early Saturday morning, agent Ossweak finally capped it. 

So, RIP. I'm officially out of the Guardian Game, unless I can manage to dumb luck my way into another.
