CHESS this Wednesday Sept. 22 at Starbucks!
Chess over the boards is quite a going thing on Wednesdays at the Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in Clayton, CA (just up from the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. in Concord) !! 20 players came by last Wednesday, and at least 9 players came by for the fun this past Sunday at the same venue ( the nine were: Art S., Irakli, Hasseb, Matthew, Mike T., Evan (long time no see, Evan!), Roger, Diego, and Maria!).
We meet at the above Starbucks every Wednesday and Sunday from 4:00p.m - 8:00 p.m. Come by anytime, the earlier the better for the better tables, more matches, and some really nice company! Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome, from beginners to masters and all in between! There are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice).
*******For those arriving early, there will be a challenging chess puzzle to solve. First one to solve the puzzle on the first try (touch move!) wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice ! No player was able to solve last Sunday's puzzle ("mate in two") on the first try. We'll have a different one this Wednesday. While the try for the free tall drink is free, a try for a grande-size drink will have an "entry fee" of 50 cents (which goes toward future club Quads)!********
See you soon!
