CHESS this Wednesday, October 5th at Starbucks!
We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, from 3:00 pm on through closing time, come and go anytime. This past Sunday's session saw at least 15 chess players and enthusiasts enjoy an afternoon over the chess boards at our usual Starbucks venue. Once again, there were players there new to the club, and some players were at or even beyond the expert level: There to welcome Mo, Danny, John T., Bob D., Peter G. and Varun were Melissa, Kevin, Mike T., Yancy, Donovan, Andrenna, Sam, Charles, Haseeb, and Vernon. Did I miss anybody?
Our next session is this Wednesday, October 5th, at our Starbucks venue. New players should know that we do not charge any dues, nor is there a purchase requirement (but it would be nice). 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! (No player solved it on the first try last Sunday, although Sam came so, so very close!)
To compete in our USCF-rated club matches or tournaments for prizes, all players must be current members of the US Chess Federation. Our next rated club competition will be on Oct. 22 & 23. Full, final details to follow very soon. However, rated Quads can form up anytime; let me know if you are interested.
Come on by to enjoy chess, make new friends, and/or renew old friendships!
