CHESS Thurs. July 24 and Sun. July 28 at Starbucks!!

Hi Everyone . . . !

There's lots more chess to be played over the boards at Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., as usual this Thursday evening (July 24), and a special session this coming Sunday afternoon (July 28, 2013).

Our Thursday session as usual runs from 6:15 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., and our Sunday afternoon session, with Bill Kelly and me hosting, runs from 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. For either session, come by anytime, the earlier the better for the best tables, more games, and some pretty good company!!

Last Thursday evening we welcomed Chris, a player new to the club but not to the great game of chess, as he aims to play more games over the boards, not just over the computer monitor! Chris will undoubtedly be meeting more players of various skill levels over the boards at Starbucks, where there were about a dozen chess enthusiasts last week.

This past Sunday saw about ten players come by to enjoy the game, with a cluster of players at the boards on the tables in the breezy outdoors on what turned out to be a nice afternoon, with some players choosing to play on the air-conditioned indoor tables. This coming Sunday session is the last of three test sessions to determine whether we should continue to have them on Sundays, based on player demand or interest.

So then, we'll see you at Starbucks!
