CHESS this Wednesday, August 2nd at Starbucks!

Hello Everyone...!

Despite the persistent heat outside, several players and companions came by our usual Starbucks venue this past Sunday to enjoy an afternoon and early evening of chess over the boards. We welcomed new players Curt, and a gentleman whose name I didn't quite get. There to greet them and enjoy the overall matches were Meredith, Durward and Nancy, Daniel and Samantha, Carol, Mike T., Max, and Ben C. and family; and, Matthew also dropped by!

Max solved the rather intricate chess puzzle on his first go at it, to win a tall Starbucks beverage! Our next session, as we meet every Sunday and Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time, is this Wednesday, August 2, 2023. There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, and the one who solves it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!

Our next club tournament:

For those interested, we will have another USCF-rated club tournament on Sunday, August 20, 2023. Time Control = G/30;d.10. Entry Fee = $20 if paid by 08/19/23; $25 if paid on 08/20. 3 Rounds.
