So is the SP building finished then? Or is that gaping hole in the side still there?

The main purpose of Scientology events is making money.

Here is the short version of what is undoubtedly going on inside the Birthday Event tonight :

The sea org is always short staffed, so in preparation for events the crew gets short rations. The galley crew puts all their attention and allocations on enticing the public to come to the events. They make tasty snacks to encourage the public to stick around afterwards. Staff can sample a thing or two, but will be reported for pigging out. (never mind that they had barely eaten all day.)

Staff are all required to go to the events, and are required to wear "upstat" civies, or "uniform K" so they look like public. At Flag, this would include about 800 Sea Org plus staff from all the Orgs and Missions in driving distance...at least a couple hundred more.

Not many public attend these events. Arnie, if you are reading this, please post the Picture...the man with no head!

So you have at least a thousand staff filling the auditorium...all masquerading as public. Only a skeleton crew is left at the orgs to handle reception or red tags or whatever.

Actual public? Only a few hundred attend. Most of those public have been presold sight unseen whatever "new release" is being released, so when the event is over they pick up their pre-paid CDs or books or whatever, and it is made to look like a big deal so other public feel pressured to buy as well.

So you have roughly 4 to 1 staff for each public, and all the staff are organized into teams to 8-C the public to buy something. All the staff have quotas, and all the exits are blocked by security except for the main one past the sales and reg tables.

SO are channeling the public like a herd of sheep, blocking them off so there is only one way to get out. You will see the "smarter public" running for the door as soon as the event is over and as they are barging themselves through the staff barricades they have to say NO 50 times if they don't want the "new release", or if they already have been presold it they try to just pick it up on the way out or later in the bookstore.

It becomes almost comical, because all the staff are being pushed to meet the unrealistic quota, and no one is allowed to leave until the quota is met. Even the bathrooms are monitored by security, so you dare not spend too much time there either. It ends up that staff are circling in clockwise and counter-clockwise circles like vultures and whispering to each other, "Did you get any?" While looking in desperation for someone, any one to route to the reg.

What happens after the event if the sales quota is not met? The "top regges" and the responsible execs from Dissem Sec up to the Captain and CMO and even sometimes RTC execs keep pounding everyone for the quotas to be met into the late hours. You see regges sitting in the office until 4 o'clock in the morning calling around to other time zones of the world to wake people up for the new release. When they get really desperate, they call someone like the Feshbachs and ask for a big donation for $10,000 or so, to save the day.

Meanwhile, the "downstat" public, who everyone knows don't have any more money, just hang out and eat all the food.

The RPF hangs around out of sight of the public, waiting for the quota to be met so they can clean up. They will be up all night, taking down the event props and getting everything out of there loaded up on trucks. Check the back doors and the drive ways and you will find this activity.

Sounds like a real fun party, doesn't it?

Still nothing to report. I took somemore pics, but they all look the same as the above, but with a diffrent timestamp. I walked by the side street of the Ft Harrison and heard alot of cheering and clapping. Some guy was talking about reaching St. Hill size 3 years ago.

RPF is still screwing around the SP building, I counted about 12 or so peeps. Tomorrow I'll get some pics of the building so everyone can see the big hole and the new landscaping that has been done.

Ladybird: That does sound like a great party. :P
If I knew public was allowed I'd have tried to go so I could get some internal pics/video. Maybe next time.

I still gotta eat dinner tonight, so I'll head out one more time to see if there is any action. Maybe I can hookup with one of those cute little SO chicks. :D

Peace out,
Ike

Good job, Ike!

Ladybird, your description of such an event sounds like my idea of misery. I can't imagine why any public show up. Who wants to be hounded by hungry SO? So, the more they hound and pressure, the fewer people show up, and the harder they have to sell to the people who do show up. Sounds like a great business plan.

Boys and girls,

what better proof that they do not have any ot powers, nor any superior
tech, than seeing all these sad and miserable cycles of lies and deceptions they all have to go through to be able to sell at least some of their bs ?

These are the actions and behaviours of second hand car salesmen, conmen, politicians, not the behaviour of beings " cause over matter, energy, space and time " or with a superior understanding of life !

How many of them are asking to themselves, deep down, " why do I have to go through all this acting, lies and deceptions, and seeing everyone else around me doing the same, if we really were cause over matter, energy, space and time as they have told us to believe in exchange for all the money and years of our lives they have robbed from us ? "

I have seen this silent question in the eyes of many a staff member in the days when they were clearing my bank a/c, together with the fear of not letting it out, or else . . .

Ladybirds account of the event is absolutely accurate. I recall one time at Auditors Day, which was the only event where the public heavily outnumbered the staff, the IAS membership officers blocked the doors so people couldn't leave and they were asked to return to their seats. The problem with this venue was that the food room was next door, so when they had IAS reg events, tons of people just went next door, ate and socialised. By the next event that was well and truly handled and the dividing wall was simply removed!

This event (Auditors day) was not intended to be a reg event, like the numerous others which were happening with more frequency. However at the end the membership officer stood up and ordered everyone into groups where they would play games in order to raise so much money. Believe me as that membership officer got up, there was a rush of as many as 20 people for the door, though the rest were curtailed!

The only difference with these events to ladybirds, was that the staff were free to pig out, as by the time the regging was over it was always quite late and most people had gone and the staff and whatever public remained ate all the food!
