    LOMA LINDA: VA Hospital organizes Golden Age Games fundraiser year's national rehabilitation program Golden Age Games, will be in Hawaii -- a fact that excites many participants. But the $1,500 travel and participation cost is steep for many, so Loma Linda VA Hospital is stepping in to help raise funds for the more than 100 senior citizen veterans receiving care at the hospital who are hoping to go.

    The inaugural Golden Age Games Golf Tournament fundraiser will be held at the Golden Era Productions Golf Course in Gilman Springs on March 20 at 9 a.m.

    Tanya Dollars, recreational therapist and tournament organizer, reached out to Golden Era Productions Community Center and Golf Course when she initially began researching fundraiser ideas.
    The community center is run by the Church of Scientology and is used by many nonprofit agencies, schools and other organizations for events and fundraisers free of charge.

    "This is the first time in 25 years it's being held in Hawaii, which is awesome," Dollars said. "The passion they have for these games is incredible. We'd love to take them all, but it's quite expensive." The tournament is open to the public. Registration costs $75 and includes lunch.

    I wonder how much of that $75 fee is going to Miscavige's war chest.
  5. Anonymous Member

    Probably none of it.
  6. OTBT Member

    No money is going to Miscavige. The golf fundraiser is strictly for PR purposes.

    Golden Era golf course is open, free of charge

    What a load of bullshit. I've been IN that pond (hardly a lake) and the only life in that filthy cesspool are the SOs pulling themselves out after they've been overboarded into it.

    It may interest you to know that they do stock it for that father/son fishing derby. Remember the guy from Colorado who was on ARS? When I heard about the fishing derby, he and I started a prefab "conversation" about fishing on ARS. Like we were going to hit Diamond Lake, Skinner, then protest the fishing derby.

    I did go up to visit Ida that, the PIs were buzzing around her house that morning, I tell you what!

    how ironic!
    They are sponsoring a golf tourney so that the VA hospital can raise funds for their senior citizens.
    If they only knew how COS treats their seniors! Offloading, and physcial labor.

    Claire Reppon comes to my mind. Seeing that last known picture of her building a Christmas display with the other RPF'ers. She died of cancer.
    And the pictures I have seen of other seniors on the roadside of Gold doing doing clean ups.
    How about the senior at the DC org who hobbles up those steps at the DC org and nobody helps her or holds the door?
    Yup COS.. some of the most ethical people on the planet sponsoring a fundraiser for seniors.

    Don't get me wrong, I hope the hopsital raises a lot of money for their patients, but where it is being held just turns my stomach.

    Cool. After the clam-friendly vets protest the APA meeting in Hawaii May 14-18, they can then hit a few rounds of golf! Pretty nice vacay.

    answering machine: hello you have reached the golden era productions golf course community center. If you're interested in booking a teetime in one of our…

    Picks up: hello golden era

    Me: yeah, can you really book a tee time?

    (Linda): in the fund raisers, yeah.

    Me: oh in just the fund raisers?

    Linda: that's all we do here.

    Me: oh, so I can book a fundraiser?

    Linda: sure if you want to do that too.

    Me: oh cool, what are the rates?

    Linda: well, what's it for? Who are you? Ha ha
    Me: well, does it matter? Does it matter who I am?

    And it goes on.....
    will take quite a while to transcribe my notes, but it was as you would expect from a cult scam operation

    with much interrogation of me and my identity etc.

    we should so do a golf fundraiser there
    she said they don't charge for charities....
    of course if irs approved......
  16. subgenius Member

    Not gonna bother doing a more detailed write up, but it sure would be interesting to play that course....
  17. Smurf Member

    Linda Greillich is the GM for the golf course. It's only a 9-hole course. I've been on it. Nothing to write home about.
  18. subgenius Member

    it still would be quite interesting to play the course… I have a feeling that if it were a charity or nonprofit they didn't agree with there would be a little bit of a problem booking… Which would be a nice discrimination lawsuit.

    She made it sound like there were a lot of events there, which I doubt… Never saw any action there from the protest videos… She also alluded to a few youth events including a high school golf team… It was rather strange because first she said that there was no charge but also said that there was some minimum charge.

    She said there is a large patio and a seating area, kitchen facilities, but you have to bring your own food and apparently prepare if yourself.

    I asked her if they had carts or caddies and didn't get an answer except that that was another reason I needed to meet her face to face. It would be awesome if they had RPF slaves as caddies. It also must be quite frustrating if you are imprisoned there, and used to be a golfer, looking over there and seeing the course, so near, and yet so far away.

    It has to be really weird operating the world's most sinister scam cult, and having to operate a golf course as part of the deal for being able to purchase the property. I doubt that there are very many Scientologist golfers, as it is too much a Zen like exercise in concentration.

    Actually I might have raised the issue previously about what if anything Scientologists do for recreation, you know, like, softball teams, tennis, golf, volleyball… Anything? No time for that, have to clear the planet.
  19. subgenius Member

    I didn't mean to suggest that it would be interesting to play because of any intrinsic quality of the course, as a golf experience.

  24. Has Scientology finally admitted their "Religion" is a business?

    They help people relieve themselves of critical thought, their financial future, former friends and family.

    It's what they do, ask Heber Jenstzch and all the other imprisoned RPFer's, oops i forgot, nm they've lost their critical thought.

    Is David Miscavige the only "religious" leader who calls himself the COB.

    I agree that he is indeed the Chairman of The Board of the criminal enterprise of Scientology, hiding behind a myriad of front groups who pose as "help" groups to enrich the Cult of Greed.

    Is anyone helping Shelly Miscavige?

    Anbody even seen her the last several years?

    She's the wife of your eccliastical leader, David Miscavige.

    A charity event dedicated to ending human slavery in America, perhaps?

    Real boy scouts, or the section eight Sea Org scouts, auxiliaries to the Celebrity Centre?
    And was the youth group Youth for Human Rights International?
