CHESS this Wednesday Sept.15th at Starbucks!
Hi Everyone . . . !
More than a dozen players came by last Wednesday, and at least 9 players came by this past Sunday to enjoy the game of chess over the boards,despite the persistent summer heat, in the cool indoors of our Starbucks venue. Last Wednesday saw John S., Mike T., Tony T., Irakli, Hasseb, Diego, Sam C., Michael J., Serena, Jon, Omar, and Omar's pal Isaaqui at the long chess table there; and, this past Sunday saw Primo, Jocelyn, Jose, Hasseb, Diego, Maria, Irakli, Mike T., and Rich K. (one of our toughest players, long time no see, Rich!) enjoy the game's challenges!
Players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to experts and masters, are welcome to join us anytime from 4:00 p.m - 8:00 p.m. at Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, CA, just a couple driveways up from the Concord, CA corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. There are no dues, nor is there any purchase required (but it would be nice).
Beginning with this Wednesday's session, early birds will have a chance to solve a chess puzzle. First one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink! If you haven't been by in a while, the weather's going to get better, and the company's quite good, as usual!
See you soon,
-- Mike T.
