CHESS this Wednesday, September 14 at Starbucks!
At least seven players enjoyed a late afternoon of chess over the boards this past Sunday. Meredith, one of our newer players, was there with Kevin, Sam, Tony, Irakli, Mike T., and -- very long time no see! -- Haseeb! The turnout was unusually low, perhaps due to the anniversary of 09/11, the heat that still prevailed, along with the season's opening NFL weekend. Sam once again solved the day's chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time, at our usual Starbucks venue, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center, which is just up from the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. in Concord. We welcome players of all ages and skill levels; players can come and go anytime; there are no dues; and, there is no purchase required (but it would be nice). Early arrivals usually have a chance to be the first to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a tall Starbucks drink!
As mentioned in our previous email, results of our club's USCF-rated tournaments held the previous weekend will be reported after Sept. 14th due to maintenance work being done on the ratings server. Updated ratings for players who participated should be available well before the end of the month. Our next USCF-rated club competition will be the weekend of October 22-23, 2022. Stay tuned for the details!
See you soon,
