That's right, folks. We have a home. The lease is sitting on my desk, to be officially and formally signed tomorrow.
Details: December 1st. That's when we get in. We'll be going full throttle to get our (mercifully-much-less-than-we-thought) construction underway, and we're still very much hoping to be open to the public in January. You'll continue to receive updates through the Kickstarter, but if you really want to keep up with our progress, sign up for our mailing list.
Also, rewards! Our trusty Board member Brandon has been busy compiling our rewards checklists and your survey responses, and we're planning on shipping out our first batches of rewards (stickers, t-shirts, and the digital rewards) in the next two weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, drop us a line at email@example.com. If you've decided you would just LOVE to add on some additional swag (the stickers and t-shirts are super cool, I promise), there's still time to do that as well. Just drop us a line and tell us what you want.
Finally, even though we're not up and running quite yet, we have started our first school partnership! It's with Stratford STEM Magnet High School in East Nashville, and we've already had our first two meetings. Learn more about the NCD+Stratford partnership here.
More to come -- I hope you're as excited as we are. Again, I can't thank you, our backers, enough for making this dream a reality.
P.S. If you're in Nashville after Thanksgiving, the Dot Commies (of which I am a part) are playing a show that Saturday (Nov. 30th) at the East Room. It should be a fun time -- we'll have a 90's-themed photobooth set up -- and the proceeds are going to NCD! Check out the event details here.
