CHESS this Wednesday Oct. 6th at Starbucks!
We meet every Sunday and Wednesday, come by anytime from 4pm - 8pm at our regular venue, Starbucks, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, CA, just a couple driveways up from the corner of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Concord, CA. Our next session is this Wednesday, October 6, 2021, all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters and all in between are welcome as chess is to be enjoyed over the boards, in person!
We had a lively outdoor session last Sunday, with players that ranged from a 7-year-old phenom and a sharp teenager who solved the difficult chess puzzle, to a couple of masters who shared in the fun by playing blitz, bullet vs. blitz, and even by an impressive win via checkmate playing blindfolded !! Along for the fun that went into evening hours were Raquel, Paul, Mike T., Setsal, Matthew, Hasseb, Ronald, Manny, Andrew, Irakli, Olaf, Chris B., and Suhas and his Dad!
More players can be expected once Starbucks restores inside dining in the very near future, after their Covid-19 training. In the meantime, should weather be an issue, the Carl's Jr. establishment across the parking lot from Starbucks may welcome indoors chess players who are vaccinated.
We are soon going to have rated Quads, stay tuned, and see you soon!
