Vanguard Week attendance estimate down to 125 [and maybe dropping further]

Vanguard Week begins in a couple of days.

Sources say attendance is expected to be around 125.

That is the smallest number of attendees in years.

Last year, about 375 people attended the annual 10-day celebration of the nativity of Keith Raniere. He prefers that his followers call him Vanguard.

The exposure of the practices of DOS, with its pubic, hot-iron branding of women and blackmail practices seems to have scared hundreds of people away from Keith Raniere and his myriad multi-level marketing “teaching” organizations.

Even the 125 number of expected attendees may not hold up by the time the event is actually held at Silver Bay in Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York..

It is believed the still rock-solid supporters of Keith Raniere is hovering around 80.

Many of those are on the payroll of Clare Bronfman.

If this is true, then less than 40 non-insiders fully invested into the world of Raniere will be attending. Normally, several hundreds of people who attend an intensive once or twice a year attend to enjoy an opportunity to experience resort living with the Vanguard.

Cost for the celebration begins at around $2,000 for a shared room and shared bathroom. A typical Vanguard Week includes gatherings, seminars, lectures, guest speakers  exercise classes, talent shows, and vegetarian meals.

The highlight of the week for many in past years is the rare opportunity to see the Vanguard as he passes to and fro to various events and mingles with attendees.  The way things are going this year, Vanguard will have time to privately tutor every female who attends.

 

The crowd at this year’s Vanguard Week is expected to be the smallest it has been in years.

  • Shame on you YMCA. It’s just disgusting that you’d allow these criminals to traffic women on your property. You can expect a nice visit from the authorities FYI.
    The question is, will Vantard do a forum this year? Surely he knows that someone is going to question his vaginal branding practices? Nah… he’s probably too much of a coward to even show up. He’ll just have Clare do all the talking in her annoying tight-ass pretentious voice while he fucks his harem and spreads herpes around the campus.

  • The fact that VanDouche has a ten day birthday celebration every year where he sleeps around and gloats in his own greatness through a facade of humility screams fraud to anyone not deaf enough to listen.

    Did Moses do this? Confucius? Buddha? Jesus? Muhammad? Gandhi? The Dalai Lama?

    Did they ever indulge in such fake tribute?

    Nope.

  • Sad but true reality: the YMCA knows exactly what NXIVM/ESP is – and they still rent to them. Why? Because Clare Bronfman rents out every available room at the facility, thereby guarantying the resort its highest-grossing 10-days of the summer. And unlike GoDaddy and Facebook, which just kicked out alt-right hate groups, the YMCA has given no indication that it will ever kick out its cash cow.

  • How is a Christian-based YMCA supporting this organization? Hasn’t anyone let them know who is staying on their property? Not sure how their other guests would feel knowing they are sharing space with sociopaths.

  • Maybe if they didn’t brand vaginas… if Vanhorny wasn’t trying to bang every nubile thing during week… if the spinsters in the upper ranks weren’t so vile to others… and the psycopaths and malignant narcissists found a conscience….VWEEK could be wonderful and worth attending. Maybe the low numbers are earned as a consequence of deep anti-humanitarianism? Just saying…..
