Today we signed the lease to make things official! We have a temp sign up at the site and have ordered carpeting to be delivered.
If anyone out there has experience with installing glue-down commercial grade carpet and would like to lend a hand, please contact us immediately.
Our first priority is to paint the place and then install the carpet. We already have tables, chairs, sets and boards ready to go. All we need is YOU!
We just recently sent out a couple of emails through the United States Chess Federation and in just two hours, as of 1 PM, received over 200 hits to our website! Five people stated they are coming to the Grand Opening. 14 have signed up so far to be on our email list and 8 have taken our survey - a great tool to gauge what local chess players are interested in so that we can better serve our community.
As we get things put together in the center I will make updates and hopefully post a few photos along the way.
