CHESS this Sunday, December 11th at Starbucks!
Hello All, Happy Holidays Ahead!
We meet as usual for chess over the boards this Sunday, Dec. 11, 2022 at our usual Starbucks venue at our usual times of 3:00 p.m. through to closing time! Players can come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice). Players there early usually have a chance to be the first to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks coffee!
Last Wednesday's session saw about a dozen players enjoy the afternoon and early evening over the chess boards, but at Carl's Jr. Restaurant across the parking lot, instead of Starbucks, which for some reason had to close at 2:00 p.m. that day! Just as a couple of players showed up at 3:00p.m.only to be greeted by the Starbucks closed sign, Matthew pulled into the parking spot and luckily for everyone he had paper, pen and adhesives to ensure that a sign was posted to direct chess players to Carl's Jr.!!
So then, along with Matthew at Carl's Jr. were Sam, Mike T., Chris N., Ernie, Yancy, Red, Connor, Diego, Bert, Hossam, and John S.!!
We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, from beginners to masters and all in between. See you soon!
