Patron with Honors
You're welcome on the links. I've read so much in 3 years and it isn't all
organized, but I recall most of the good stuff.
Also I saw much with my own eyes like earliest Clearwater, inner sanctum
meetings in Portland, weird feelings from Snow White pawns or players at
FCDC, and others.
PM me if you want or not, as all should be available to all except GO/OSA.
Ah, yes - I was at Flag in 1983, back when it still looked kinda shabby. Someone was trying to reg me for the SO until I told him how old I was (I was under 18). Of course now, they'd just reg the poor kid and guilt his parents into signing the release. But things weren't quite so out of hand at that time.
But OTOH, there was this fund-raiser at a hotel conference room in Portland where they closed the doors and wouldn't let anyone leave until some quota was met. It went until well after midnight. Ken Hoden ran that one. I guess he was a bigwig at the Portland Org back then (around 1979 or '80 or so). Pretty weird being a kid in that room. I don't even recall what the damn fundraiser was for, but it was some kind of big threat to eternity. Now that I think of it, it must have had something to do with Julie Christofferson.
