Hi Everyone . . . !
The Contra Costa Chess Club made its return to Starbucks last Wednesday after a long summer hiatus, and will meet again this Wednesday evening, October 1, 2014, at the Starbucks coffee house located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.. We'll meet here every Wednesday, same time, from here on, so come by anytime, the earlier the better for the best tables, more games, and really nice company!
Last Wednesday, 8 chess players were on hand to help start the chess action hereabouts once again . . . John S. never lost a game, nor did Anthony (hmm, maybe they should play each other next time . . . ), as Mike T., Chris T., Hans, and Bill enjoyed their matches. Newcomers Curtis and Craig were also there to join the fun as onlookers who enjoy the game and who will jump in next time!
Questions have come up regarding whether the club will be putting on another East Bay Open this year. If it does, it will be for Veterans' Day Weekend, Nov. 7th - 10th (or Nov. 7-9; or 8-10). Let me know if you will support efforts to make this happen, and/or participate in the event itself, thanks!
