Captain Kangaroo must have cleared his schedule to make hisself available for the adoring smaller than expected crowds for the great day in Sydney. (Though they are not promoting He will be in attendance overtly yet, there are probably strict instructions not to let the SP’s know, and OMG don’t tell Bryan Seymour and Steve Cannane… what if THEY show up wanting an interview?)
After promising February, then March, then silence, they are now scheduling the big day for early May. That should give Him enough time to get a video put together for the Maiden Voyage Scuba Diving Cruise.
Doubt that Dear Leader will venture to any other of the illustrious orgs in Australia to witness his massive international expansion for himself. He may not even be able to find Canberra, Adelaide, Perth or Brisbane “orgs.” He might make a stop over in Auckland to see Lou’s hometown and inspect the decaying wreck they purchased over there as part of his “ideal” program.
Sydney in the meantime has just a month to grab the last bucks they can before they begin their new campaign of “an Ideal Australia”….
But be forewarned KoolAiders of Oz. If you cannot guarantee there will be no contact with the undesirables or the media, Lord Voldemort will shun you, just like he did Pretoria. It is a long and arduous trip that takes a toll on his fair skin and creates bags under his eyes, so if there is a reason to cancel, he will be happy to oblige.
Funny they don’t announce the time of the Grand Ribbon Pulling but instead announce “sign-in begins at 2” — probably because it takes so long to check everyone before they are allowed the privilege of standing on the same street as the great man. Wonder if his personal security will fly in with him too?
Here are some more specifics and a ration of exclamation marks to make it an official church communication:
