Midwest RES did a thing. It was very blue (also very fun).

I love my team… working on this op was a blast, not just because we made big blue triangles but because we did it with friends and we had fun.

Operation Smurfin 2: Electric Bugaloo!

Unlike some of my crazier ops, this one was conceived long ago, in a galaxy far, far away… During the spring of 2016, I hatched a plan to cover Chicago, Milwaukee and Indianapolis in layered fields. I was making contacts throughout the Midwest and had a sets of keys to areas in Northern Illinois and a little highway rest area just outside of Iowa City. So, with that I began asking for help from the Indy locals and Stinkiehippie helped to farm keys for that area. We met in St. Louis for Via Lux, transferred keys and were ready to set the plan in action that fall. Then it happened – Chicago got Via Noir and the plan was postponed.

As time went on, we still had the plans in the backpocket in case we ever needed a large field. More time passed, more localized Resistance fields were thrown, so much so that the Resistance won every cycle in AM01-Juliet07 for 2017!

With 2017 over, I decided it was time to go back to some of my old plans and checked with all locations to make sure keys were still in place. I pulled in some of my contacts from throughout the region and within 2 weeks we were able to gather nearly 100 agents to assist. The day of the operation was a nerve wracking one as green links blocking the lake had to be taken down and replaced with blue links. During lunch time, a few agents were able to gather along the lake and simultaneously drop the blockers and throw blue links to Big Sable Lighthouse in Michigan. With the anxiety of lake links over, we could now concentrate on the night’s activities.

The plan was to throw the fields for the first checkpoint of the new cycle at midnight Central Time. An hour or so before that, agents began to gather along the lanes in near freezing temperatures to drop all blocking links. As our throw time came closer and closer, the call went out to drop all links, but then there was a sudden stop as a new blocker came up and the nearest participating agent was 20 minutes away – which would have put us over checkpoint. Frantic calls were put out and luckily, unbeknownst to us, an agent was playing at the opposite end of the link and took it down, saving the day! The call to drop all links was put out and the first field went up successfully for over 8 million MU! Agents in Iowa and Indiana carefully went through their areas and put up all 11 layers with only a few minutes to spare to checkpoint. At checkpoint, our final tally was: 11 fields for 96,725,155 MUs! And, as a bonus, 2 newer agents that were included in the field throwing (FernMae and LilFern) were able to get their onyx Illuminator medals with 25 million and 17 million MU captured respectively!
