Hi Everyone !
Chess over the boards happens every Wednesday afternoon and evening at Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, is gaining more new players every session since we started back up this month ! 16 players came by last week, with new players Michael B., Matthew R. and Jayden joining the group! On hand to welcome them were Maria, Sebastian, Art S., Mike T., Rey, Tony T., John S., John H., Roger, Ranen, Chris B., Dennis, and Diego along with Diego's daughter Athena! (Did I miss anyone? ) Nice to see players of all ages and skill levels joining us for the first time or returning after some time away from our venue due to the pandemic !
Join us as we meet again this coming Wednesday, July 28, 2021, from 4:30 pm - closing time of 8:00 pm. Come by anytime, the earlier the better, for the best tables and more matches! There is no purchase requirement (but it would be nice). Wearing a mask is still optional if you have been fully vaccinated; however, if you have not been vaccinated, please wear a mask, especially if playing indoors.
Looking ahead, we may have an additional day and time to get together for chess. Tentatively set for every 4th Sunday of each month, starting Sunday, August 22, 2021, Diego may be hosting chess players over at his house's expansive back patio area! Stay tuned for more info as to time of day/evening, and other specs; and, by all means let Diego know you're interested in playing at his place, when you see him . . . !
See you Wednesday!-- Mike T.
