Well, this “Grand Slam Event” was just too good to be true. Literally.
I happened to be in Austin this evening, and dropped by the Grand Slam Event. These photos were taken right as the big event was getting underway.
Nobody in sight except a woman standing near the table set up in the entrance that had a few lonely Dianetics fliers on it. She was hiding behind the column smoking a cigarette until she saw me taking photos and then scurried inside, leaving the card table abandoned.
This org is literally across the street from the University of Texas. Perhaps on NY Org and the original London Org in Tottenham Court Rd have better locations.
And it is absolutely DEAD. Of course, they KNOW they cannot actually do anything until they are an “ideal org” — but they are NOT moving to a new location. Why things are going to change then is a complete mystery.
Until then, if you want to participate in a Grand Slam Event, go to Denny’s. They would seem to be the Winning Team as they are likely making more money selling bacon, eggs and pancakes than the Church of Scientology is selling the only route to spiritual freedom.
