CHESS this Wednesday, Jan. 19th at Starbucks!
This past weekend's 13th Annual Golden State Open in Concord saw at least 10 or more players who frequented our chess club over this past year as well as during pre-pandemic times. Among players competing (and at least 3 or 4 were in the money! -- and there were wins, losses and draws for everyone, as no one got shut out!) were Enrico, Chris B., Ranen, Mike T., Bert, Morgan, Alwin, Eric, Carl N., and Jackie C., with visits from Yancy and Ronald!
It's a safe bet that more club players will plan on competing in next year's 14th Annual GS Open on the long Martin Luther King weekend at the Concord Plaza Hotel in Concord ! Overall it was fun, or at least quite the experience, and several of us certainly made some new friends.
Our club session takes place once again this Wednesday (tomorrow), January 19, 2022 at our usual Starbucks venue, at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., Clayton, CA., just up from the corner of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd. of Concord, CA.. However, should the Starbucks be closed for any reason, we simply meet at the Carl's Jr. Restaurant just across the parking lot!
As usual, players arriving early have a chance to be the first to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a tall Starbucks drink of choice!
See you soon,
