CHESS this Sunday, July 16, 2013 at Carl's Jr. & Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

There's chess over the boards as usual at our regular Starbucks venue from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time this Sunday, July 16, 2023. However, USCF-rated matches begin at 12:30 p.m. at Carl's Jr. Restaurant, which is just across the side parking lot from Starbucks.

If there are not enough players at Carl's Jr. to make either a Quad or group of 6, unrated matches can be played, and entry fees will be returned. To compete in rated matches, the posted entry fee is $20 paid before Sunday, $25 if paid on Sunday. In addition, players must be current members of the US Chess Federation. Time Control, as posted, = G/30;d.10.

Last Wednesday's session saw at least 9 players enjoy the afternoon of fun, challenging chess! We welcomed yet another player new to the club, a fellow by name of Moses, and there to welcome him were Tony, Matthew, Mike T., Ben C., Bert, Mike S., Ben, and Alwin (long time no see, Alwin!).

We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, 3:00 p.m. to closing, at the Starbucks at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd, in the Clayton Shopping Center. All ages and skill levels welcome, no dues, 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 beverage of choice!

See you soon,
