Potluck BBQ Signup.
Post in the comments what item you plan to bring to the event to share.
Bring your own beverage and alcohol will be allowed at the event. Please drink responsibly. We will try to have a point to collect items before the group photo if you wish or bring them to the park after you finish the missions.

+Kim Riser​ In answer to your questions from the other group. Enlightened local contacts are +Chase Pritchard+Jacob Boaz+Jomo​ We do not have any banner missions (I am not a fan of them so I haven't made one). Recommended missions would be art in the heart, grave keeper 1+2, hood of enlightenment, UAF sculpture, creamers field (be warned of mosquitos) mysteries of morris thompson, there are also a couple alphabet letter missions among others that use passphrases. 3 good ones in North Pole also. Non Ingress stuff- Chena Hot Springs, Creamers Field, Santa House in North Pole, granite tors or angel rocks hiking trails, Denali National Park is just south about 2.5hrs.

There is an agent I know from Vermont who has expressed interest in creating a Fairbanks Mission Day card. Are we interested in pursuing cards so I can get the ball rolling on them?

So they need a location for checkout. I have one business downtown that offered. My other thought is a picnic shelter at Pioneer Park. $50 rental fee. We could do a potluck dinner after checkout there?
