CHESS this Wednesday, May 24th at Starbucks!
Well more than a dozen players enjoyed the afternoon and early evening of chess over the boards at our usual Starbucks venue! It was so nice to see Keko there with Ona, and that chess masters Ronald and Manny were there too, along with Mike T., Farbod, Reza, Ron, Tony, Kevin, Meredith, Balraj, Yancy, Red, Olaf, and new player Leo!
We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time at the Starbucks located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center, just a couple driveways up from the corner of Concord's Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd. All ages and skill levels are welcome, and players can come and go anytime. There are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice). There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, and the first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice (no player was able to solve last Sunday's puzzle on the first try).
So then, the weather's just fine, come on by and enjoy the game of chess over the boards, make new friends, renew old friendships! See you soon.
