CHESS this Sunday, September 3rd at Starbucks!
The long Labor Day weekend is here, hopefully with cooler weather, as we continue to meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time at our usual Starbucks venue! Of course players can come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there's no purchase requirement (but it would be nice to buy something). Our next session is this Sunday, September 3, 2023. All ages and skill levels are welcome, and there usually is a chess puzzle to solve. The first one solving the chess puzzle on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
No player in our session last Wednesday solved the puzzle on the first try, but Irakli certainly has the bragging rights, having solved it on his subsequent try, building off of Tony's solid attempt! Along with Irakli and Tony enjoying chess over the boards were Samuel, Angel, Ben C., Meredith, Mike T., Bert, Alwin, Mike S., and Matthew with his son, a bundle of joy all of nine months old!
If you're around this Sunday, come on by, make new friends and renew old friendships! To our more than 70 club players: Enjoy the weekend and see you soon!
