CHESS this Wednesday, August 16th at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

Several kids or young adults joined the fun and challenge of chess over the boards this past Sunday, and they certainly were a challenge for the adults! There for the afternoon, with several staying until evening, were Lou, Juliana, Mathis, Meredith, Ian, JJ, Kayden, Ben C., Kevin, Sam C., Reza, Mike T., Jayden, Max, Suhas, and IMRonald! Did I miss anyone? Oh, yes, of course there was Ian, JJ, & Kayden's Mom Paige and Dad Harry, along with Jayden's Mom and Suhas' Dad!

We meet again this Wednesday, August 16, 2023, from 3:00 pm on through closing time, at our usual Starbucks venue. 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! All ages and skill levels are welcome, come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there's no purchase required (but it would be nice).

Next Sunday, August 20, 2023, as mentioned in the last few emails, we'll try to have a 3-Round USCF-rated club tournament (G/30;d.10), at the Carl's Jr. Restaurant near our usual Starbucks venue. Entry fee is $20. Starting Time: 12:15 pm. Required: Current USCF membership. The Sunday afternoon chess session at Starbucks will be held, as usual.

However, regarding the tournament, because only 3 players have indicated interest and commitment to play to date, more players will need to sign up by this coming Wednesday for the tournament to be held as scheduled. Otherwise, a cancellation of the tournament will be sent out via email, and we'll try to reschedule one, perhaps a much larger tournament, for another time.

See you soon!
