CHESS this Wednesday, March 29th at Starbucks!
We meet for chess over the boards every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon at our usual Starbucks venue from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time -- we welcome players of all ages and skill levels, there are no dues, players come and go anytime, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice). Players there early usually have a chance to be the first one to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a tall Starbucks beverage!
Our next session will be this Wednesday, March 29, 2023. Last Sunday saw Carl, Myles, Joe, Vin, Vin Sr., Meredith, Sam C., Mike T., and Yancy enjoy the game, with Yancy even solving a rather difficult chess puzzle!
Our Next USCF-rated Club Tournament (Based on 6 or more players)
Our next USCF-rated tournament will be 4 rounds, using the Swiss Pairing System, played over two sessions. The first will be on the afternoon of Sunday April 23, 2023 starting at 1:00p.m., followed by the last two rounds on the following Wednesday and/or Sunday, depending on players' schedules or availability, to complete the competition.
Time control will once again be G/45;d10.
The Entry Fee for this time will be $30 if paid before 04/23/23, or $35 if paid on 04/23/23.
Note: All players or participants must be current US Chess Federation members. Renewals or new memberships, allowing players of any age or skill level to play in any USCF-rated tournament in the nation, can be obtained easily online at www.uschess.org.
Let me know if you have any questions or need more info, see you soon!
