CHESS this Wednesday March 2nd at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone !

Chess over the boards is a fun, challenging social activity every Wednesday and Sunday, from 3:00p.m. through to the 8:00p.m. closing time at our usual Starbucks venue!

Our next session is this Wednesday, March 2, 2022.

Come and go for chess and perhaps other fun kinds of games anytime after 3:00p.m., the earlier the better for the better tables. We're located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd, Clayton, CA, just a couple driveways into the Clayton Shopping Center near the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd., in Concord, CA.

We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters and all in between. There are no dues. There is no purchase requirement (but it would be nice). Players arriving early often have a chance to be the first to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!

At least 15 players enjoyed the game and meeting new friends at our session this past Sunday! We welcomed back Johnny H. (lonngg time no see, Mr. H !), as well as Elisa and her 7-year old son Johnny, and met for the first time her Chess and "Go" playing Dad, Phac! We also welcomed new players Valerie, Evelyn, Lee, and Jacqueline! On hand to get some games in with everyone were Mike T., Vishwa, Yancy, Tony, Sam, Mark and Setsal.

Tony solved the chess puzzle on his first try, and a tip of the hat goes to Yancy for his time spent giving young, smart, and attentive Johnny chess pointers; and, to Setsal for his focus and time spent teaching Valerie the basics of the game!

Looking ahead, expect more USCF-rated club tournaments! Stay tuned, see you soon,
