You all know the drill by now! Beer, Ingress, beer, more beer, Ingress, and more beer!

I can't believe we've made it to 40 of these events. Thank you all for attending! It wouldn't have been possible without the strong support from both factions, and I am truly appreciative.

As most of you know by now, this will be my last cross-faction night for several months (or if Canada breaks up with me, then forever!). If you've been meaning to come out to one and haven't found the right time, now is the right time! 

Going forward, I've asked +Chris Thiessen (Ba1r0g) to take over the event creation. Please give him the same support and enthusiasm I've been lucky enough to have!

It's been a slice, Vancouver! <3

In honour of American Thanksgiving this week, let's do nothing out of the ordinary! What am I thankful for? Beer and Ingress!

Hey Vancouver, let's rock this!

#Ingress   #FirstSaturday   #IngressFS  
From Niantic: Part social, part competitive, Ingress: First Saturday is an Agent-organized meetup that happens on the first Saturday of the month.  The very first #IngressFS  meetup will happen on November 1, 2014.

So, Vancouver! We're coming up on 1 year of weekly cross-faction beer nights (WOW!) and now we have an opportunity to compete against other communities for an extra slice of glory! Let's take our friendly beer night to the next level and be amazing competitors!

I'll update the event as soon as we have a confirmation on a meet-up location. In the meantime, assume it will be near a Skytrain station for easy arrivals and departures!

First Saturday? Well that's not quite every Monday, but we can rock this!

We've built cross-faction fun into the core of our (beer) community, so let's play the game and be great competitors! Helios doesn't have to be it!

Vancouver, we can rock this!

Agents.  We are pleased to announce a new type of Niantic event - "Ingress: First Saturday."

Part social, part competitive, Ingress: First Saturday is an Agent-organized meetup that happens on the first Saturday of the month.  The very first #IngressFS meetup will happen on November 1, 2014; and 24 cities will be selected to receive Niantic Labs' official "Ingress: First Saturday Kits (IFSK-100)".  The select 24 cities will be chosen on October 20, 2014 from those communities/cities that register at http://goo.gl/pNR7pI

Ingress:  First Saturday Schedule:

10:00 AM  Cross-Faction Coffee:  Join or invite new and seasoned Enlightened and Resistance Agents in this purely social Cross-Faction meetup. All Levels are encouraged to join.  Grab a cup of coffee, meet local Agents face-to-face-to-face, learn how to play Ingress or teach a new Agent the ins and outs of Ingress and share Ingress stories.

12:00 PM  Level-Up Bootcamp (Start):  Register your level and AP with the opposing Faction lead.  HiLVL Agents will pair with newer Agents working to level up.  Note that the official Visur game mechanic will reward AP gained among low level Agents during #IngressFS most handsomely.

2:00 PM  Level-Up Bootcamp (End):  Agents will check back in with the opposing Faction Lead to record their final AP.  Individual Faction prizes are included in IFSK-100's.  Communities are encouraged to develop their own Faction prize/trophies.

Can Austin take Portland?  Will Sydney top Aukland? Shall Buenos Aires rise above Rio?  City v. city total Cross-Faction AP gain will be measured and reported back to #IngressFS for bragging rights and possible awarding of the next set of IFSK-100's for December 6, 2014 (48 cities).

Register your November 1 #IngressFS event via http://goo.gl/pNR7pI. On October 20, Niantic Labs will poll all registered Google+ event pages for RSVP "Yes" attendance and other factors.  24 selected cities will be shipped an IFSK-100 - designed to supply a total of 100 Agents.
