Hi Everyone . . . !As usual on Wednesday evenings, we meet for fun, challenging chess and perhaps other games this Wednesday, May 10, 2017, from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., . . . come by anytime, the earlier the better for the better tables, more matches, and some really nice, interesting people!
Our session last week featured some interesting match-ups, great moves, ok some silly blunders too, and overall good camaraderie that not only spotlighted chess, but also other games such as the gravity, circuitry, and laser beam mazes! On hand for the fun were Andrea, Hanza, Ann and Dan, Jonathan, Bob C., John S., Chris B., Tony T., Yousef, Ernie, Amir, Rich K., and Mike T. . . . !
This month's session at Panera Bread Restaurant, located at the corner of Bancroft Rd. and Treat Blvd. in Walnut Creek, is set for Sunday, May 21, 2017 from 2:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. As usual, similar to our arrangement at Starbucks, it's on a come anytime basis, no dues, and no purchase required (though it would be nice).
Interested in entering the 2017 Nationals this June in Las Vegas (at least 8 or 9 divisions, from novice/unrated skill levels to expert and master levels, with cash prizes down to 10th place in each one), and coordinating with other players for ground and air transportation to and from the tournament site?
See you soon,
