Hi Everyone . . . !There's lots more chess over the boards tomorrow, Sunday May 21, 2017, as mentioned in a previous emailed message, at Panera Bread Restaurant, located at the corner of Bancroft Rd. and Treat Blvd. in Walnut Creek . . . the session runs from 2:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m., come by anytime, the earlier the better for the better tables, more matches, and some really nice company!
Our gathering this past Wednesday evening at Starbucks saw nearly 20 players of a wide range of chess skills, from novice to master, enjoy the evening of fun, challenging competition! There was even a game of Chronology Cards towards closing time! Along for the fun were Tony, Mike T., John S., Chris B., Chris Th., Ann S., Danielle, Hanza, Amir, Jonathan, Yousef, Ken, Bob C., Evan, Andrew, Mark S., Alyssa, Christie, and Jim . . . plus some interested onlookers!
More players of all ages and skill levels come by each session, and some may even be practicing for an upcoming chess extravaganza of a tournament set for mid-June in Las Vegas . . . ! As usual, our chess club does not require dues, nor is there a purchase requirement at either Starbucks or Panera Bread when you're there with us (but it would be nice). Bring your chess set if you have one, along with a smile, goodwill and a penchant for renewing old friendships, and making new ones!
See you real soon,
-- Mike T.
