CHESS Club Meets Again in Person at Starbucks this Wednesday July 7, 2021!!

Hi Everyone . . . ! 

At long last, Chess players of all ages and skill levels can once again meet and play over the boards starting this Wednesday, July 7, 2021, at our usual venue, Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in Clayton, Calif., just a couple driveways up from the corner of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd.! 

Come by anytime between 4:30 p.m. and closing time of 8:00 p.m. (earlier the better for the better tables) this Wednesday, get some games in, renew old friendships, make new ones! There is no purchase required (but it would be nice). However, please do not bring food in from other places, other than a small snack if necessary, in deference to our host, the staff of Starbucks. 

Need to wear a mask? Not if you're fully vaccinated. However, if you haven't been vaccinated yet, please wear a mask if playing indoors, for your benefit and that of others, owing to the pandemic's current events, e.g., Delta Variant and all. 

Let's get our chess sessions back as a regular thing, Starbucks on Wednesdays!! Yay!! 

If you have any questions or need more info, let me know. Thanks much!

  1. You've shared some excellent information about World Chess Championship. I'm happy I came across this post because it contains a lot of useful information. Thank you for sharing this story.

  2. Each piece that makes the chess set up is relatively larger in size than that of the pieces that are used in the other board games. With the sheer massive size comes the need to use more materials and expend more effort to make them up. This of course leads to the higher prices of the chess sets overall.
