Welcome everyone, and pardon the dust. I'm still getting everything set up.

The purpose of this group is to give new agents a jumping on point to the secure G+ and Slack groups the Ottawa Enlightened use for day to day communication. If you have any other questions in the meantime, feel free to ask them in the Help section.

Welcome +Brandon Zweerman
Do you play in the Ottawa Area?

Hi +punishment, what area of the city do you play in?

+José Cazalon welcome to the Ottawa Enlightend. To proceed on to the private group, go to and follow the instructions there. Look forward to having you on the team.

What Is First Saturday?
Part social, part competitive, Ingress: First Saturday is an Agent-organized meetup that happens on the first Saturday of the month.

Ingress:  First Saturday Schedule

11:00 AM - 12:25 PM : Signup/Registration/Coffee
12:25 PM: Group Photo Session (Faction Only & Cross-Faction)
12:30 PM - 2:30 PM : Contest Period Active
2:31 PM - 2:45 PM : Event Ended - Calculating scores
3:15 PM - 3:30 PM : Announcements/Prizes

Detailed Schedule:

11:00 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.

12:30 PM  Level-Up Bootcamp (Start):  Register your level and AP with the opposing Faction lead.  Hi LVL 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.

Competition with other Cities
In additional to all of this, cities versus cities will be competing with the total Cross-Faction AP gain that will be measured and reported back to #IngressFS for bragging rights and possible awarding of the next set of IFSK-100s.

Please set aside a day to meet and help new agents and compete in this worldwide competition.

So is this a holding tank, while admins confirm the credentials of applicants?
