Hi Everyone . . . !!
Join us once again, or for the first time, for challenging chess over the boards at our regular venue, Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, this Wednesday, August 18, 2021, anytime from 4:00 p.m. to closing time at 8:00 p.m.! We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners and novices to club players, experts, and masters!
Come by anytime, earlier the better for the better tables, and more matches! There is no purchase required (but it would be nice). However, due to the ongoing pandemic, Delta Variant and all that's been in the news, please wear face masks if playing indoors, especially if unvaccinated, whereas if outdoors face masks are optional.
Despite the ongoing heat wave last week, at least a dozen players came by for the fun of the game, plus to renew old friendships, and make new ones! Players who came by to enjoy the game of Chess were Max, Irakli, Ranen, Diego, Jim, Tony, Eric, Maria, Mike T. and Chris Th., and newcomers to the club, Armen and Alexei !
Note: We may also play on Sunday, Aug. 29 from 4pm - 7pm at a different location. Please let check in with me for more information.
Looking ahead: We will have USCF-rated club quad tournaments. Venue, Time Controls, Entry Fees, etc. to be determined, We've done these before, so stay tuned!
