Hi Everyone . . . !
There's more fun, challenging chess over the boards as usual this Wednesday evening, September 19, 2018 at Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., from 5;30 pm - 9:00 pm. Come by anytime. There are no dues, nor is there a purchase requirement (but it would be nice). We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to experts and masters and all in between!
At least 11 players enjoyed the evening last week, and at least 10 players enjoyed the afternoon at Panera Bread yesterday, when a couple new players came by to add to the fun!
Re Quads: Although we already have held one successful rated Quad as mentioned last week, our next ones will have to be rescheduled to Sunday, September 30th and Sunday, October 7th. The delay is due to the TD re-certification process needed for me per the USCF, regarding its newly minted 6th Edition of the Official Rules of Chess.
So far, players who have expressed interest in competing in our club's rated Quads have been Tony, Chris B., Justin, Austin, Chris Th., John S., John H., Max, Andrew, Mike T., Primo, and Jackie, among a few others, an indication that we can have at least 3 rated Quads soon!
Stay tuned, and see you soon!
