CHESS this Sunday Afternoon, Oct. 31 (Halloween) at Starbucks ? 1:00 - 4:00 pm!
Owing to Sunday, Oct 31st being Halloween, an evening for kids and parents and for yet others staying in to give out treats to trick-or-treaters as soon as darkness falls, our club chess session will run only from 1:00 p.m. - no later than 4:00 p.m. at our regular Starbucks venue. Players can of course stay longer, if desired.
So then, come by anytime between 1pm and 4pm this Sunday, Oct 31 for your chess fix !
More interest has been shown for USCF-rated competition held by our chess club, as in rated Quads or other formats. The rated matches (using tournament rules such as "touch move," and having a certified TD available) are good practice for the large January 2022 tournament (13th Annual Golden State Open, in Concord, CA !). The rated matches will also give our unrated players their provisional ratings so that they are better set for the exciting experience of playing in their first major chess tournament within their appropriate rating or skill levels!
In case you missed the announcement, with full specs, for the 13th Annual Golden State Open, here once again is the link/website (if you have questions about it, just ask):
See you soon,
