Security access install started today, going up to grab the last three machines. Painting the walls and before the week is out I think the website will go live. We're almost ready to open. I am pretty optimistic, that our initial membership count in the first 30 days will be fairly strong. I've heard a rumor that we may be on the cover of HPR this week. My business partner is doing a radio interview on the jack and sandy show tomorrow. Both the 10pm news feature and the follow up article in the Forum have helped spread the word. Every time I turn around, I am getting great feedback and people asking when they can join and when will it be open.
So get your thinking caps on and start throwing ideas at me for some more pins. I've said before that I wanted to put another 2-3 in the room itself and I would add that I have been planning on having 2,3,4 in reserve incase we have a more serious maintenance issue on a machine and it needs to come out of the line up. I can also add, that assuming the applications for membership mirror what appears to be a ton of interest, I will be adding additional machines to line up with the idea of rotating machines in and out to keep the line up fresh, diverse and engaging for the players.
This whole thing has been a blast to try and get going and I am having a hard time doing real work because of all the fun!!!
I set up the membership guidelines to include the ability to add a second adult family member for just the price of the second access key fob. So for those of you that have more than one person in your family that wants to play and wants the benefits of full membership for the contests, leader boards and the events we will be hosting, you'll save $15 on the initial set up by spending $35 for the first and $20 for the additional instead of $70. Additionally, the year re-up membership fee will be $20 which will cover both, saving another $20. Which means more money to spend on the pins!!
