CHESS this Sunday, Dec. 4th at Starbucks!
Hi Everyone !
We meet again this Sunday, December 4, 2022, as we do 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, very close to the intersection of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. in Concord.
We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters. There are no dues, players come and go anytime, and there is no 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 was able to solve last Wednesday's puzzle on the first try, it was a tough one!
Last Wednesday saw about a dozen players enjoying an afternoon and evening of chess over the boards: Donovan, Chris N., Sam, Mike T., Bert, Matthew, Irakli, Yancy, Mark, and a couple of players whose names I didn't quite get, but will see again!
See you soon, and we may have a fun impromptu unrated tournament !
