CHESS this Sunday, September 24th at Starbucks!
There's lots of chess over the boards once again this Sunday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time at our regular Starbucks venue (1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center). We meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, same time, same place, come and go anytime, there are no dues, there is no purchase required (but it would be nice).
There will be a chess puzzle to solve this Sunday, and the first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
Last Wednesday's session saw at least eight players come by to enjoy an afternoon of chess, and it was great to see Evan H. again after a few years -- back as an engineer from Purdue Univ and quite a job in Seattle -- one of the first regular players of this chess club! Along with Evan at chess Wednesday were Tony, Angel, Mark, FBen, Mike T., Bert, and Mike S.! Many more players, including kids, are expected as usual this Sunday, including at least one, maybe two, masters! If there's an overflow of chess players at Starbucks, by all means check Carl's Jr. across the side parking lot... there could even be a chess lesson or two going on there, as well...
... so then, come on by, make new friends, renew old friendships! See you soon!
