CHESS this Wednesday April 13 at Starbucks!
More new players are joining us as we meet every Wednesday and Sunday afternoons after 3:00 p.m. on through closing time at our usual Starbucks venue at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., just up from the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. in Concord CA! We meet again this Wednesday, April 13, 2022. Players arriving early 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!
Our last two sessions saw players welcome Chris N. last Wednesday, and Shaun W. this past Sunday. More than a dozen players came to play chess over the boards this past Sunday, including kids Johnny with mom Elisa, and Suhas with mom and dad Vanna and Pruvdi, and several others including Yancy, Tony, Olaf, Shaun, Clifford, Brandon, Sam, Matthew, Ronald, and Mike T. Some observers even asked to join in our next session(s).
We will soon be having at least one group, if not more, playing USCF-rated Quads and/or Round-Robin club tournaments. Let me know if you're interested. Players need to be current members of the US Chess Federation to play in club tournaments.
However, USCF membership is not required to join our club simply for the fun and challenge of the game. We welcome players of all skill levels, from beginners to masters. There are no dues. There is no purchase required (but it would be nice).
So then, see you soon!
