When 13MAGNUS Reawakens in DC happened about 6 weeks ago, it was only a few days after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico and other parts of the Caribbean. Two of our agents from Puerto Rico were unable to make it to DC as a result of the devastation, and many other agents on the island had their lives torn apart. Fortunately, swag sales did quite well, and after all of the expenses were accounted for, there was still some left over. After discussing with agents in Puerto Rico (which took several weeks because agents in the center of the island were unreachable for over a month), we identified one particular agent, @Pinucho whose home was completely destroyed and needed as much help as possible. We were able to give him some money to help defer some of the costs of getting back on his feet.

The first two photos show his home as of just 2 weeks ago when we first got in touch with him. He has just been able to start the rebuilding process as the next two photos show. It will be a long time before his life gets back to normal, but hopefully our small gift to him will ease things a bit on the way.

Swag proceeds also went to the following causes, as voted on by DMV Resistance Agents:
* So Others Might Eat (http://some.org/)
* Capital Area Food Bank (https://www.capitalareafoodbank.org/)
* Global Giving Puerto Rico and Caribbean Relief Fund (https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/hurricane-maria-caribbean-relief-fund/)
* The Trevor Project (https://www.thetrevorproject.org/)

Second run swag orders are finishing up now, and all first-run domestic orders have shipped!

Don't miss your last chance at DC Swag today!
Anomaly Swag Update:
- The store (http://store.dmvresistance.org/) is open for re-orders of shirts and coins. Sunday will be your last chance to order. For coins, I'm still a few orders short of what I'd need to cover production costs - if I don't get at least 5 more orders I will cancel the order and refund the coin orders
.
- The remaining stock of pins, patches, and bags is available at a reduced price. Once these are sold out, there will be no more.

- Domestic orders have shipped. In most cases delivery is expected by Thursday. International orders are going to take a little more time as they need to go through Canada first.

As we sit back and begin to recover from the craziness of this past weekend, a lot of thoughts are racing around in our heads. Relief being the main one that we can finally sleep, but also gratitude! We wanted to take a few minutes and thank everybody who participated, both Resistance and Enlightened, in making this weekend in DC a success!

For members of the Resistance, we’re so glad that you came and joined us. We hope that you had as much of a blast as we did. While the results weren’t what we wanted, people seemed to be having a good time and enjoying themselves, despite the heat and loss. It was great to see you all, putting faces to familiar agent names, reconnecting with old friends, and making a bunch of new friends. We hope to see many of you again soon.

For the Enlightened, we salute you. Well played. You clearly had us outnumbered everywhere. We gave it our all, but in the end it was not enough. Till next time, celebrate your win, you deserve it.

And now for the thank yous. Thank you to all the agents who attended, the vetters, the key farmers, the rechargers, the team leads, the intel operators, the dispatchers, the car teams, the bikers, the planning team, and so many others. This anomaly couldn’t have happened without all of you pitching in and helping where you could. We can’t thank you enough for all your efforts.

- Alison, Cliff, and Geoff (aka Team Tiara)

2 Weeks to DC Update!

Hey guys, we’re really happy with all the progress we’ve made so far making this event the best Anomaly ever! As we enter the last two weeks, we want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to make sure as many people as possible can join us in DC on Saturday, September 23rd. We want to have as exciting and as fun an event as possible, and want every potential Resistance agent to have the opportunity to participate!

First and foremost, we want to make sure everyone in attendance has the best Ingress weekend ever, and we’re committed to making that happen, so if you need to reach us to tell us how we can help with that, please do so ASAP! The easiest and simplest way to get more information or reach out to the organization team is through our outreach hangouts here: http://dmvresistance.org/?p=265 . From world class attractions, museums, and nightlife, to one of the best Banner Mission collections and Unique Portal opportunities anywhere in the world, DC will certainly be the place to be in a few weekends, and we want to make sure you’re there to enjoy it with us!

If you’re worried about inventory goals - don’t! We’d rather have you there and having fun, rather than be at home and miss out, regardless of what your inventory or ability to farm looks like. If you’re worried about not knowing what to do, that’s alright too! We have a great support network, and great team leads to guide everyone throughout the day. We have accommodations for agents with mobility and other sensory challenges, so please don’t let these stand in the way of a great time either!

Finally, if you haven’t yet, don’t forget to sign up at http://dc.willbe.blue today! We look forward to seeing you all there in two weeks, so come join us in pulling in another Resistance Anomaly win!

We’re going to be closing Swag Shop orders on clothing items next Wednesday, September 6th. We will have some limited items for sale day-of, but again this will be extremely limited and no items guaranteed. We also ship both domestically and international! Make sure you get your orders in today!

Hey guys, take a look at our great guides for visiting DC!

Visitors Guide

From great information on how to get to DC and where to stay, to how to find a great restaurant, museum, or just a public bathroom once you’re here, there is a ton of great info for new visitors and veterans alike. Info also includes bus, transit, and bike share information! Our Visitors Guide can be found at http://visitors.DMVResistance.org!

Missions Guide

From missions on the National Mall, to awesome banners worth a detour while traveling down 95 through MD or VA, there’s almost more banners in the DC area than we can count! We’ve put together a list of our favorites, and our Xfac Missions Guide can be found at http://missions.DMVResistance.org!

And, of course, don't forget to sign up for the Anomaly on September 23rd at http://DC.willbe.blue !
