CHESS this Sunday, May 28th at Starbucks!


It's our long Memorial Day weekend! If you're in the area and would like to enjoy an afternoon and even an early evening of fun, challenging chess over the boards at our usual Starbucks venue this Sunday, May 28, 2023, by all means come on by! We're there from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time! We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, come and go anytime, there are no dues, there's not even a purchase required (but it would be nice). There usually is a chess puzzle, and the first one to solve it on the first try wins a tall Starbucks drink of choice!

We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, same time, same place (Starbucks at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center, just a couple driveways up from Concord's corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd.).

Last Wednesday saw about a couple dozen players and supporters enjoy the game of chess: First timers Reuben, Sochie, Mark, and Luis were welcomed and made many new friends! It sure was fun to see young Zachary and Sammy, two of Ronald and my chess students, along with their grandparents Igor and Zhanna! Not to be out done were young gamers Ian and JJ, along with mom Paige! And there was Meredith, a graduating senior from Clayton Valley High, congratulations! Certainly on hand to enjoy the company and all that chess has to offer were Hossam, Red, Matthew, Nando, Bert, Mike S., Tony, Ben, Angel, and of course, Mike T.!

That's it, come on by, make new friends, renew old friendships, play chess! See you soon!
