CHESS this Sunday, June 11th at Starbucks!


Last Wednesday's session saw at least 15 players come by for an afternoon and early evening of chess over the boards at our usual Starbucks venue! We welcomed Kayla and her mom (visiting from Michigan thru Vacaville, we hope to see them again!), and with them for the fun and challenge of the game were Aaron, Roman, Red, Mike T., Yancy, Sam C., Vernon, Henry and his kids Ian, JJ, and Kayden, and Vernon as well as Diego! Did I miss anyone? Both Yancy and JJ, at different times, were able to solve the chess puzzle!

We meet again this Sunday from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time, same place --- and several players might actually be there even earlier, to practice to be even more prepared for a rather large tournament coming up next weekend . . . in Las Vegas!

We welcome players of all ages and skill levels, there are no dues, and there's no purchase required, as players come and go anytime. 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!

See you soon,
