CHESS this Wednesday, May 17th at Starbucks!
It's always so nice to have new players join us and see them interact with our regular players as well as those who come by time to time, and those who return after a long absence from the chess-over-the-boards scene at our usual Starbucks venue!
We continue to meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, from 3pm through to closing time, with players coming and going anytime. We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, there are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice). There usually is a chess puzzle to solve: first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
Last Sunday's session, despite the observance of Mother's Day, saw about 10 players enjoy the afternoon of fun, challenging chess! There to welcome new players Samuel and Jordy were Farbod, Chris N., Red. Kevin, Tony, Mike T., Keko, and -- long time no see -- David T.! We certainly can't predict the number of players who will come by for chess, whether it be on a Sunday or Wednesday afternoon: it could be six, or twenty-six or more! So then, see you soon or when you can make it! Here's to making new friends, and renewing old friendships!
