Update: The event reported on below did NOT include Pretoria Org. It was a combined Joburg, Joburg North event. Pretoria will be having their “Call to Freedom” IAS event this coming Saturday in the org.
In the lead up to last weekends IAS event we posted the recently produced song for the IAS. It’s IAS night!
That event was held last weekend at the Kyalami Castle where that video made it’s official debut. The castle is the home of the future Advanced Org which may or may not open in 2015. It is probably important to note at this point that the “African AO” has been a dangling carrot for 30 years without a single official OT level delivered. Yet, we are hearing of greater numbers on the OT levels right now throughout the country which has not required a large building or impossible “have to haves”.
We wondering if everyone made it to the event ok since it’s final directional sign fell of and it not doing much to direct anyone. Propped up against a wall pointing the wrong way.
The event last Saturday night was the maiden voyage IAS event and was combined with Joburg, Joburg North and Pretoria Orgs. That’s two Ideal Org (Joburg & Pretoria). Around 300 people attended. As is the practice with fund raising events it had a theme. Of course being at the Castle the theme had to be “knights”. David Lipsitz & Albert de Beer along with Cameron Wade were there to oblige being dressed in knight outfits.
Most remarkably R650,000 was raised for the IAS. At least this is the pledged amount, it remains to be seen how much of that will be collected as people wake up to buyers remorse.
With 300 people in attendance and being able to report a figure of R650K to report to the IAS is enough for those still on the inside to believe that their mission is very on track.
