Guesstimating Pete's 'Truth': Algren puts attendance at scant

by Jeremy Hooper

Blogger Matt Algren counted cars outside of Peter LaBarbera's so-called "Truth" Academy so you wouldn't have to. Go read Matt's account of the seemingly warm-body-challenged, undeniably acceptance-challenged effort:

There were 17 vehicles in the parking lot when I arrived on Friday as registration was set to open, and only a few more came in before we left at 3:00. On Saturday, I counted 25 vehicles before the Truth* Academy lunch break, so let’s fix the number of vehicles at 25 on both days.

Screen Shot 2011-04-04 At 6.50.15 AmAt least two of those were the vehicles of police officers. At least three cars (I’m assuming they carpooled to and from the airport) were used to get the seven instructors around. Figure another three for non-attending church employees preparing for Sunday morning or there in case of an emergency at the event.

That leaves us with 17 vehicles for paying attendees. Assuming half of them arrived with two paying attendees, that would put paid attendance at an extremely generous estimation of 25, even with 75% discounts for local attendees and the prime audience, and a 25% discount for everybody else.
