CHESS this Wednesday, July 12th at Starbucks!
We do meet again this Wednesday, July 12, 2023 at our regular Starbucks venue, same time, 3:00 p.m. through to closing. All ages and skill levels welcome, 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 player to solve it on the first try wins a free Starbucks beverage of choice!
