Hi Everyone . . . !Just a short note reminder that we'll have our usual 3rd Sunday of the Month session this Sunday, December 18, 2016, at the Panera Bread Restaurant, located at the corner of Treat Blvd. and Bancroft Rd. in Walnut Creek, from 2:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. All ages, genders, skill levels welcome, as it's fun, free, challenging chess over the boards at a very nice venue (yet another opportunity to practice for the upcoming January 2017 Golden State Open -- with 5 divisions, from novice to master -- at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Concord, Calif., right next to the local airport and golf course).
This week's session at our Starbucks venue had a very nice turnout, with as many as 16 players coming and going at various times, catching a game or two or three, meeting new players, and making new friends! On hand to welcome newcomers and mix and match through several games were Priya, Jonathan, Tony T., Chris B., John S., Dylan, Sydney and Kristin K., Ronald, Rich, Allan, Quaco (or Kwako?), Dan K., Bob C., Elisa, and Mike T. Capping the evening was a set of sharp speed chess games between Ronald and John S.!Looking forward to seeing you this Sunday afternoon, rain or shine,
