Hi Everyone . . . !
We meet again this Wednesday evening at our usual venue, Starbucks at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., for chess over the boards in a fun coffeehouse setting, come by anytime, the earlier the better for the best tables, more games, and some very nice, interesting company!
Last week's session saw an enthusiastic set of players, as we welcomed newcomers Kate and Robert and Tamara and Sevian, along with returning players Andrew, Lorenzo, Chris, Priya, Mike T., Rich, Anthony, and Tony, with several players enjoying a platter of Starbucks goodies being passed around. Anthony and Rich got in such a chess duel that they took it across the lot to Carl's Jr. to finish after Starbucks closed for the night . . . !
. . . and speaking of Carl's Jr., that's the venue for the Sunday, September 20, 2015 chess lecture and simul exhibition that will be put on by IM-elect Ronald Cusi, so put the date on your calendar so you don't miss out on the fun that would go from 2:00 p.m. - approx. 4:00 p.m. that day, and let me know soon as you can whether you will be playing in the simul, details posted on line last week, still there on our web site. Space will be limited to about 25 players, and I already have more than half a dozen signed up for it, respond via reply to this email or call the number below, thanks!
See you soon,
-- Mike T.
