Hi Everyone . . . !Come join us this Wednesday evening, January 11, 2017, from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., for fun,challenging chess regardless of your age, gender, or skill level . . . ! Come by anytime, the earlier the better for the best tables, more games, and some really interesting people!
Several players will be practicing openings, end games, tactics, playing on the clock, taking notes, etc. etc., for the 8th Annual Golden State Open Chess Tournament set for this coming weekend at the Concord Crowne Plaza Hotel . . . there are 7 skill sections, from master to novice! If you haven't signed up yet, you have until this Wednesday to do so at reduced rates, but signups can be done on the day of the tournament. Even if you don't enter, drop by and get social, even root your friends on in between matches, as there will be several of us there.Last week's session at Starbucks was fun despite the cold, wet weather, as Kitty, Bob C., Chris B., Chris Th., Tony T., a couple young kids, Mike T., Jonathan, Rich K., and long-time-no-see Ryan were there, over the boards, to get some matches in before this weekend's tournament! Figure there will be more players having chess fun at Starbucks this Wednesday evening, rain or no rain!
See you soon,-- Mike T.
