SP's inside Orange County's Ideal Org!?!

Post by Roan » Mon Apr 30, 2012 10:26 pm

Some time back, Arnie Lerma stayed with me during a portion of his West Coast (travel) tour. One day, we decided to head out to Gold Base to take a look around; but first Arnie had some business to do, so I suggested we head into downtown Santa Ana.

Image

Better yet, I wondered aloud: "Why don't we pay a visit to Scientology's latest attempt at an Ideal Org??" After all, it is in downtown Santa Ana, right where we are going. I'm sure Scientology would appreciate an impromptu visit from two "old friends"!! :lol: Right?!?

But like all good (ex) Scientologists, we needed a shore story. Thus was born the Amalgamated Lighting & Sound Co., Image
ready to scout the building under construction in preparation for it's bid on the lighting and sound phase of the Ideal Org. construction!
As you can see, Scientology rolled out the welcome mat for us!

Image

Once inside, we of course, needed to check the specs on the construction drawings, find out what we were dealing with!

That took guts. With all those materials, there should be a crew working there.

As you can see, the visit went pretty well.

However my subsequent attempts to submit our bid and
my many follow-up inquiries with OC Org. officials have met with little success!

You guys have big balls! How original to pose as construction contractors! Of course, this will likely never be possible again, but what the hell! I am surprised that despite the financial shenanigans about the funding of this Borg, actual, real, construction is going on.

Good work for the both of you!

Well, I just couldn't help myself!
Image
Amalgamated Lighting & Sound
had to go back to see the finished project! ...didn't we?!?
Very recently the intrepid Doug Owen was in the Big O.C., so we got together for dinner and to talk strategies. Guess where we decided to take a stroll afterwards?? You guessed it! ...the newly opened OC Ideal Org!!
This time a shore story wasn't even necessary... we were invited right in!!
Image

We were given a tour of THE ENTIRE facility by some newbie bookstore staffer. Of course, of paramount interest to the folks at Amalgamated was the auditorium that we lost the bid on. Here it is:

Huh, interesting. The building was used by a theater group prior to being turned into an idle org. I wonder if this is the original stage. Also, I read it would be used to give quincanera fashion shows. Trying to suck the Hispanic residents into the cult.

And here Doug is doing his best to keep a straight face as this (I'm sure now RPF'd) newbie enlightens Mr. Owen on the finer points of $cientology! Image

Until next time! Image
