CHESS this Sunday, July 2, 2023 at Starbucks!
It was so nice to see several kids come by to play chess over the boards with each other and with adults this past Wednesday at our regular Starbucks venue!
First there was William, who was with his Mom Rochelle and his younger sister Ella. Then, just when William left the chess boards, there came young Anh and his younger sister Mamin, soon followed by young Zachary and his younger brother Sammy (both students of mine in an after-school program) and their Dad!
All were welcomed by Tony, Mike T., Sam C., Ben D., Mike S., Bert, Meredith, Angel, and Ben C. (who solved the chess puzzle on his first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink!).
More players, possibly including a couple of masters, are expected to come by this coming Sunday, July 2nd, as we continue to meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time. Players 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!
So then, come on by, get your game going, make new friends, renew old friendships! We'll even have a club tournament on Sunday, July 16, 2023 - see our Upcoming Club Tournaments page for more info.
See you soon,
