Hi Everyone . . . !
Last Thursday evening saw about a dozen players enjoy an evening of chess at Starbucks despite the 4th of July holiday, with even 4 players continuing at Carl's Jr. Restaurant across the way for a few 10-min. speed chess matches! Last Thursday was also Monahar and Darmawan's first time to visit with us for a fun session of chess, and we certainly hope to see them again soon.
There's lots more chess to be played this Thursday evening, July 11, 2013, at our usual venue, Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif. As usual, our regular session runs from 6:15 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. Come by anytime, the earlier the better for the best tables, more games, and good company!
Starting this coming Sunday, July 14, 2013 for the next three Sundays we'll have extra summer sessions, from 2:00 p.m. - 6;00 p.m., with Bill Kelly helping to host and play in each Sunday session. The addition of Sundays is a response to inquiries about having Sunday afternoon chess club sessions for those players who either would like to play more sessions of chess over the boards (as opposed to mostly on computers or smartphones), or for those who simply can't make it to the club on weeknights. These next three Sundays will help determine whether or not the Contra Costa Chess Club will continue to have such sessions for the rest of the summer, or perhaps even all year 'round . . . .
. . . . . so then, we'll see you at Starbucks!
