    Attendance was 1200 in the morning, 1146 in the afternoon. 5 baptisms, mostly young girls (18-20 range) and one that look older (over 20)

    Cost of the assembly $8500. Total collected by 2:30 pm - $850

    No videos were played and the screen were off during the entire program. The only screens on were in the hallways and areas outside the main auditorium

    I am not aware that GB member Lett ever came out to the main auditorium. I also left during lunch so I don't know if he did so then.

    Here are links to transcripts of his talks in another thread

    I just noticed the the transcript for Talk #2 is missing a piece. I guess my wife got tired of typing. Is not a big piece but it was interesting how he started casting differences between "winners" and "losers". The typical appeal to "you don't want to be the loser". Thought that was pretty petty of him. There is so many more subtle ways to brainwash people.

    I am going to try and see if someone actually recorded the talk.

    Looks like the rank and file are voting with their wallets, and it ain't good! Wonder how Lett the Clown is liking THOSE numbers? Hahahaha! Take that, you freakin' crooks! How many people are on the verge, or close to leaving, because of hearing/seeing Lett? I wonder.................

    Thanks for the stats StarTrekAngel. Was the attendance in line with what was expected or less or more?

    Interesting that 5 were baptized - sounds like slim pickings.

    That's not unusual. Most of the donations come in as R&F head for the exits. They like it this way as it allows them to read the "financial report" and have it looking like there is a desperate need for money and most often more than enough comes in. Only recently have I heard of assemblies that ended up in "the red". When that happens, they merely send a pro-rated bill to each Cong and "request" the money.

    Thanks for the stats STA

    1200 attendance with 5 baptised with a GB member present. Not too hot.

    I wonder if there will be a slight bounce back from last year's low figures. We had a zero out of 1000 for the first time in 30 years at a CA I attended in April 2015. And 3 out of 1000 last November. Next one is end of March - will be interesting.

    5/1200 = 0.4%

    This is on the low end of the ratio being reported in the last couple of years, which seems to be running 0.4% to 0.6%.
