CHESS this Sunday, June 25th at Starbucks!
Challenging and fun chess played over the boards is certainly the thing to do this Sunday afternoon, from 3:00 p.m. through closing time (players can come and go anytime) at our usual Starbucks venue, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center just a couple of driveways from the corner of Concord's Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd.
We also meet Wednesday afternoons, same time, same place. All ages and skill levels are welcome, from beginners to masters! There are no dues, and there is no purchase required. Players there early usually have a chess puzzle to solve, and the first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
Last Wednesday's session saw Bert, Tony, Mike T, Tony, Sam C., Matthew, Red, John S., Mike S., and Ben mix it up over the boards! We never know whether at any session there will be less than 10 players, or 20 or 30 or more players, so come by and make new friends, renew old friendships, if you haven't been by in a while!
We'll have a USCF-rated club tournament in late July, with a time control of G/30;d.10. Stay tuned for more details, see you soon!
