Hi Everyone  . . . !

Play chess over the boards this Wednesday evening at Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, Calif., from 5pm - 9pm, rain or no rain . . . !  Come by anytime, the earlier the better for the best tables, more matches, and some really nice, interesting company!

Last week's session saw very good matches between players who braved the traffic and the rain!  Ronald was on hand to play speed chess, along with regular matches that were most interesting, as were, for example, between Art S. and Mike; Chris B. and Rich K., as with John D., with Jesse and family members waiting for Wade to join in and be welcomed by the chess players . . . . who also welcomed our newest novice chess player, Sunnie!

We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, no dues, no purchase necessary!

See you soon,
