CHESS this Wednesday Nov. 23 & Sunday Nov. 27 at Starbucks!
Hi Everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving Week, Day, and Weekend!
We're still having fun, challenging sessions of chess over the boards this Wednesday, November 23 and next Sunday, November 27, 2022 at our usual Starbucks venue, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center, just a couple driveways up from the corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. in Concord.
We go from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time, players come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there is no purchase requirement (but it would be nice). Players arriving early usually 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!
Last Sunday saw at least 18 players and supporters -- including kids and 4 moms! -- enjoy the afternoon and evening playing chess: Reza, Varun, Red, Sam, Matthew, Ranen, Ron, Duncan, Mike T, Meredith, Ohm, Sia, Paul, Sidd, Hira, Raquel, Mrs. L, and Pamela! Did I miss anyone?
Looking ahead, we'll have some fun club tournaments,with both rated and unrated chess matches, with Blitz, Rapid, and Classic Time Controls. Stay tuned!
