Of Preparing for an Official Opening - 23rd February
The new DATCC is currently taking shape with all the partitions already up - waiting for it to be painted and fitted with doors. The new center will boast a library, an office room and training rooms including a 120 seats playing hall. A bit of clean up to be done and by next week, it should be 80% complete. In addition, a new main entrance with lighting is also being prepared to provide a safer passage for players to enter the playing hall instead of having to cross the main traffic lane from the bubble lift area. Yes.... We do have your safety in mind as visitors to the center can walk safer along the parking bays and right into our playing hall instead of having to cross the pathways of incoming vehicles.
The membership program has also taken off with a few players and parents already signing up to be members of DATCC - and many more who have inquired and requested for the forms. At more than 30 events per year (with special rates for members), and other benefits such as lower parking rates, use of library, member facilities, e-news and other specials, this is something worthwhile for chess players and supporters to be a part of. This is the first chess center that encompasses everything that is chess - a one stop shop for chess activities and programs, training and coaching, reading and learning, a meeting place to discuss and meet up with friends, and a venue for tournaments, sparring games and endless practice sessions with our in house trainers.
Membership types varies from individuals as we have rates for adults, youth, teens and young children. We are also offering group membership for small families (with 2 young kids) and bigger families (with more than 2 kids) at reasonable rates so that families can enjoy their outing together at the center without being left out - and going easy on the parents pocket to attract more families to join. A group rate is also available for associations and corporates who would like to be a part of our program - which offers additional discounts for DATCC Team event which is schedule to take off sometime in late March or early April.
Our official OPENING DAY is set for Saturday, 23rd February 2013. On this historic day, we will be organizing a 15 round Blitz event where members play for free (and RM15 for non members to join). A RM400 prize fund is set aside for the top 8 players with special prizes to be given to the best lady player, and the best U12 performer. Aside from the Blitz event, we are also allowing onlookers and visitors to visit our new set up, enjoy some refreshment and drinks and perhaps, sign up as members as you visit our new activity center.
