Celebrating the Matriarch of Brighton

Every Ingress agent is young at heart, but no-one more so than agent PallasOwl who recently celebrated her semisesquicentennial birthday in the company of fellow agents in Brighton.  To save you Googling… that’s 75!

Following an introduction from her son, PallasOwl has been playing regularly since the third year of Ingress and wants to get to level 16 before she “pops her clogs”.  As well as being the Matriarch of Brighton, PallasOwl is also known fondly (at least by the Enlightened) as the hero of the Battle of Saltdean. 

So, how did she get that title?  Well, one Sunday evening, an alert went out about a large Resistance field which was expected to cut through Saltdean, a town east of Brighton on the South East English coast.  Some Resistance agents had cleared the town and put a blocker along the coast and were sitting in their cars on standby.  PallasOwl stepped up to help, smashed the blocker and started spamming links everywhere.  For the next while, the Resistance agents were in hot pursuit trying, but failing, to remove all her links. We will never know if her links were the only blockers to that field attempt, but the tale was born!

Bumping into one of the Resistance agents a week later, another Enlightened agent asked “Are you OK? I heard that last weekend, you got beaten up by a little old lady”!

February First Saturdays

You wouldn’t think it was the middle of winter looking at the hundreds of agents who turned out for the nine First Saturdays that took place up and down the UK yesterday.

Bath, Cardiff, Glasgow, Hoylake (Merseyside), Ipswich, Kingston upon Hull, Greenwich (London), Market Harborough and Reading provided warm welcomes to all these agents.

Did you forget to go?  Mark your diary for March 7th, and don’t miss the next one!

Gone for a Burton

Earlier this week, agent imajicaman decided to do a spot of solo fielding over the market town of Burton upon Trent.  And it most definitely went for a Burton under all the ensuing layers!  Including a re-throw, around 20 layers were closed, totalling around 1.2m MU.

Fabulous work agent!

Perfection…

Last night, this exquisite, level 6 homogeneous field sprang into life over Chelmsford, and, as of time of writing, can still be seen on intel.  With sides, between 10 and 12km in length, this has to be one of largest level 6 fields thrown!

Congratulations to all the agents involved in putting up this beauty in double quick time: clojurian, Dayvid87, dhwalden79, HunterCeej, IainG, Plubly, UndeadDarkKnght, and Yatesatron

Looking forward to the sitrep!

Not Frozen!

So many agents gathered around the UK to attend First Saturdays today – Barnsley, Cardiff, London, Newcastle, Oxford, Perth and Southport.

It may be the middle of winter, but the cold never bothered us anyway!

What a fabulous turnout!  And it looks like they all had a fabulous day!
