Hi Everyone . . . !
Summer may be winding down, and chess still is a happening every Wednesday evening 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 best tables, more matches, and some very nice, interesting company!
Last week's session saw about a dozen players drop in for some fun, challenging chess. Among those that were there were Ronald, Justin, Tony T., Pat, Jonathan, Mike T., Ann, John S. and . . . very long time no-see . . . Hossam! It should be noted that John S. and Hossam were two of the original founders of the Contra Costa Chess Club some 14 years ago come this November! A highlight of the evening was Ronald's successfully taking on some speed-game challenges wherein he gives opponents 5 minutes against his 1 . . . and in one instance against his 30 secs!
As players of all skills and ages do, come on by, get your game up, have fun, renew old friendships or simply make new ones!
See you soon,
