Many of you are probably wondering: why sign up for a Full Membership? What's in it for me? Why make that monthly commitment, when I can just get a Day Pass whenever I need one?
Firstly, a Full Membership isn't necessarily for everyone. If you're the sort of geek who's likely to visit the club once or twice a month for specific events, it doesn't really make sense for you to sign up. A Day Pass when you need it should cover your needs.
Likewise, if you're the sort of geek who only comes once a week for your Role Playing session, an Affiliate Membership will do the trick. Even if you decide to join us on the occasional Saturday morning, a couple of Day Passes a month in addition to your Affiliate Membership will get you by.
But if you're the sort of geek who'll be coming to the club two or three times a week, then a Full Membership is for you. For more reasons that simply the saving you'll make by paying R290 per month instead of the many R45 Day Passes. If you're spending three days at the club a week, it's costing you less than R25 a day for bottomless coffee, bottomless WiFi and unlimited access to all Open Sessions.
That's our standard line, but let that sink in for a minute. If you don't have your own ADSL at home, that's all the app updates, YouTube videos and messing around on Facebook you can handle, for less than it would cost to connect via prepaid 3G. And that's not counting the unlimited coffee (or tea or hot chocolate, if that's what you prefer) that you can suck down while you're doing it.
And only after all that do we start thinking about the awesome community you'll be tapping into, just by being here. Find fellow gamers, crafters, cosplayers or any other kind of geek you want to collaborate with or play against. They're all here!
There's another benefit of Full Membership that we've been pretty quiet about so far, but it's definitely worth taking into account: the Buddy Pass.
Let's say you've got an important event coming up, and you want your non-geek girlfriend to come and see you doing your thing. Or you've got a closet-geek friend you're trying to coax out of his shell by introducing him to the wonders of Warhammer 40k. Ordinarily they'd have to get a normal Day Pass at R45 for the privilege.
But you, as a Full Member, can help them get in cheaper by buying them a Buddy Pass! Once per month, per Full Membership, you get to buy a Buddy Pass for R20. A Buddy Pass is a discounted Day Pass, and gives your buddy all the access a normal Day Pass would, at less than half the price.
So for less than R25 a day, not only do you get access to all the awesome we have at DeeTwenty, but you get to bring a friend for less than R25 a day too! Score!
And don't forget: there's no commitment. You can change your membership every month. No stress!
So what are you waiting for? Join the Club!
