CHESS this Friday & Sunday, April 21st and 23rd at Starbucks!
Just a quick reminder that we can enjoy chess over the boards this Friday, April 21, 2023 at our usual Starbucks venue from 4:30 p.m. on through closing time. This is for this Friday only, as we continue to meet on Sunday and Wednesday afternoons.
We also have our USCF-rated club tournament this Sunday, April 23, 2023, starting at 12:30 p.m. at the Carl's Jr. Restaurant which is just across the side parking lot from our usual Starbucks venue. For details of the tournament, please check the Upcoming Club Tournaments page. At least half a dozen players so far have committed to competing in this Sunday's 1st two rounds, with subsequent rounds to be played on either or both the following Wednesday or Sunday, depending on agreed upon date and timelines between players and the Tournament Director, to accommodate personal work schedules. Those not participating in the tournament are welcome to observe and may play chess there or at Starbucks with others who are also not in the competition.
This past Wednesday's session saw about a dozen players enjoy chess: Irakli, Yancy, Red, Sam, Trenton, Tony, Mike T., Mike S., Diego, Bert, and Ronald . . . did I miss anyone? We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, see you soon!
