Poor Davey Pack. Imagine the humiliation going through Davey's mind this week when Gerald Six Pack Flurry announced he plans on buying the Bricket Wood Campus.
Gerald already has a bigger campus property, a bigger auditorium and genuine HWA artifacts, while Davey has nothing. Davey's campus property is smaller, it has smaller buildings and his proposed auditorium is half the size of Flurry's.
This is from Exit and Support Network. While some stories there are at times less than credible, this one has been coming in from different sources today.
Did you hear about how GF is planning on buying Bricket Wood in the UK? It was home of the WCG Bricket Wood college campus [sold in 1976]. An announcement was made in the UK congregation. They indicated that they want to build a college there. They may have already purchased some portions and are in negotiations for more parcels. They are interested in purchasing the old WCG head house also. Looks like they have plenty money to invest in this. --UK
"Yes" it is true. Last Sabbath, Gerald Flurry announced that the Bricket Wood property [in Hertfordshire, England] was up for sale again, and PCG plans on purchasing it. At the PCG Youth Camp at Headquarters, this was announced to staff and campers. GF said the land would be used for a college. We have not heard yet what property has actually been purchased. --Anonymous
Several readers here have contacted me with more information concerning Bricket Wood.
It is no rumor that Flurry is doing this. PCG has already purchased several lots on the campus, including the main building and a cottage that HWA used.
Six Pack plans on starting classes there this January. That remains to be seen though. Certification needs to be obtained from the government in England. Given Gerald's "cult" status this may prove to be little hard for him.
There also may be backlash from neighboring residents and businesses when they find out another Armstrongite cult is moving back in, particularly an American cult.
Since HWA originally wanted this campus to be for all black students, is this the racist policy that Six Pack will emulate here too? This idolatry of Herbert Armstrong seems to know no end.
Gerald was not able to buy everything on the old property at this point in time. He is in negotiations for other parcels, including the former natatorium and track area. Local residents fought to keep control of the woodlands and they prevailed. They are listed here: Hanstead Wood

Flurry is also buying into an area well know for its naturists groups and Wiccan groups. Gerald Gardner, considered the father of modern Wicca started his first coven here. Fun times will be ahead for those "innocent" American "students" of Six Pack's. Naked pagans running through the woods on Samhain should be delightful! Paganism and Armstrongism, what a perfect fit!
