The Tanuki Society is an organization dedicated to fostering social and communal bonds through shared interests, nerdy pursuits, and sense of mutual responsibility toward other members and the club's welfare. We believe a sense of community can be developed and social networks expanded by organizing events and providing space in a welcoming and inclusive environment.
Initially, the Tanuki Society will act as event coordination group, partnering with existing establishments that support nerdy hobbies to bring the community fun and innovative experiences. Events will be organized to unite the communities within each establishment by focusing on specific interests, effectively growing the community within each existing location. Members will gain privileged access to events and promotional items.
Once a strong membership base and revenue stream is secured, Tanuki Society will look to acquire a long term location. The location will serve as a clubhouse for members. The clubhouse will provide space and tools to support its members hobbies and interests including but not limited gaming and meeting space, 3D printers, computers, and a welcoming environment. To support revenue and its members, The clubhouse will include a small retail space predominantly utilizing a special order service. To differentiate the Tanuki Society Clubhouse from other game stores, we will look to incorporate a limited food and alcohol service cafe.
