Scene: Newmindspace Plays Capture the Flag

Pink Team vs. Blue Team fighting for victory in our downtown streets.

WHERE: Streets surrounding Nathan Phillips Square

WHEN: Saturday night

WHAT: This year, Newmindspace’s annual game of Capture the Flag moved north from its previous field in the financial district to the quieter, less traffic-laden environment around City Hall. Several hundred participants gathered to hear the rules and were split into two teams, wearing either a pink or blue glowing band. With each team assigned one half of the match zone—bordered by Dundas to the north, Bay to the east, Queen to the south, and University to the west—battle commenced. After much running, skating, biking, dodging, and sneaking, the pink team emerged victorious.
