T-Minus 4 Days Till Launch

That's right: the Beta Weeks are drawing to a close and we're less than a week away from launching DeeTwenty v1.0 at our Grand Opening!

Here's some stuff you need to know about the Grand Opening itself and events surrounding it.

The Grand Opening

This is going to be an epic celebration to commemorate the official launch of DeeTwenty Geeking Venue. Everyone is invited to join us, FREE, to check out the venue and spend some time geeking out with us. We're gonna party like it's 2369!

Geeks know how to party

You should bring along any geeky things you might want to use when you get here: Magic decks, HeroClix figures, board games, lightsabers, LARP weapons... anything like that. There'll be tables all over the place and fellow geeks playing or running demos for all kinds of things, so you can just join in.

You should also come wearing any costumes, uniforms or other generally geeky attire you feel inclined to wear. If you can't wear that stuff here, where can you wear it?

There'll be some snacks and beverages from our Snackbar, so bring some cash along.

Although neither memberships nor Day Passes are required to come into the event, you'll be able to sign up for December Memberships at reception. 

Just to be on the safe side, here are the details:

Date: Saturday 16th November 2013
Time: 17:30 till late
Address: 18 Consuenol Drive, Blairgowrie
Parking: At Blairgowrie Plaza Shopping Centre, 50m down the road.

If you want to be certain you'll get updates for the event, RSVP on Google+ or Facebook.

Other Stuff

So, with the Grand Opening the Beta Weeks promotion comes to an end. That means we'll be charging full prices for our usual products from Sunday the 17th of November onwards. As a reminder here they are:

  • Day Pass: R45
    (one day's full access, bottomless coffee included)
  • Affiliate Membership: R150pm
    (full access to Open Sessions one day a week, coffee and bottomless WiFi included)
  • Full Membership: R290pm
    (full access during all Open Sessions, coffee, WiFi and other cool stuff included)

It also means that with the madness of the Grand Opening out of the way, we'll be initiating Business As Usual for the first time, so you'll start seeing what DeeTwenty will look like under 'normal' circumstances. You'll start hearing about upcoming events further into the future, things happening with our Affiliate program, and other interesting things we're not quite ready to talk about yet.

As with any worthwhile project, DeeTwenty will be a perpetual work in progress: constantly learning, improving and upgrading. Over time we'll be levelling up the venue, adding new products, features and benefits, and figuring out how to deliver our products and services in better and more useful ways. We're looking forward to sharing that adventure with you!
