Subject: Our next milestone – Portland Org Grand Opening!Dear Xxxxx,
Some very exciting expansion news!
I wanted to invite you to the Grand Opening of our next Ideal Org – Portland Oregon on Saturday 11 May 2013! The Grand Opening is Sat at 1PM followed by Tours and Ideal Org Alliance events. The next day, Sunday, starts with Sunday Service and is followed by a Dissemination seminar, an FSM seminar with Jeff Pomerantz and Michael Roberts and ending with a concert at 6:30.
This is of historical significance since Portland is the site of our biggest victory for Religious Freedom when we banded together as a mighty force during the Crusade in 1985! This is where we coalesced as a group and forged our winning traditions! Many of you were there.
This is unquestionably a once in a lifetime opportunity and you are invited to participate in the adventure!
What is so wrong? Let me make a partial list….
1. Why aren’t there enough public in Portland to fill up their grand opening? If there are 10 million Scientologists and 150 orgs, that is 65,000 people per org? That’s more than enough to get the required 2,000 to give standing ovations to so they can say “thousands were in attendance.” But let’s stretch it and say that Seattle, Vancouver and Northern California public attend. That is another 7 orgs (not counting Day and Fdn) – 4 of them ideal and at least 2 “SH Size”. That’s half a million public at 65 per. Let alone Western United States — the FASTEST growing Scientology continent on earth and winner of the Birthday Game 5 years in a row. The continent with more Ideal Orgs than any other place on earth.
2. But East US is sending out emails begging people to attend? Why wouldn’t they be concentrating on expanding EUS? It’s not like everything is hunky dory — they can’t get Harlem open after 10 yearts of promises. Long Island Org may have been washed away in the last hurricane and nobody noticed, Buffalo is moribund and that is just the orgs in New York State! There is a simple answer — the ONLY thing that is important in Corporate Scientology is what “COB” is doing. He will be in attendance in Portland so everyone is flat out “backing up COB” — “we are not going to make him wrong by not having people there to acknowledge his hard work and brilliance in bringing up this incredible stratgey to clear the planet.”
3. And why is WISE sending out pleas to its members? I guess they don’t work on getting Admin tech into society any longer. They are strictly and only trying to ensure they tax Scientologists who have businesses.So that is their mailing list.
4. Finally, an “FSM Seminar” by Jeff Pomerantz and Micahel Roberts? Does anyone want to lay bets on what they will promoting for people to “FSM” to? NOT new public onto the Bridge, that’s for sure….
