CHESS this Wednesday, October 4th at Starbucks!
This past Sunday's session saw 15 players --- 9 adults and 6 kids --- enjoy a good part of the afternoon playing chess over the boards at our regular Starbucks venue! While the more experienced players were Max, Ben C., Sam, Mike T., Reza, Red, Kevin, Samuel, and a new player by name of Uso, the really, really young ones were Sabina, Jackson, Quinny, Poppy, Lucy, and Tramy! They all had fun, including several playing in Blitz and Bullet matches -- and it was Sam who won the free Starbucks drink by solving the chess puzzle on his first attempt!
Players of all ages and skill levels are welcome every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon, from 3:00 p.m. to closing time. Come and go anytime, there's no purchase required, and there are no dues. We're located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center, just a couple driveways up from the Concord intersection of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd. There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, and the first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!
We will be having a USCF-rated club tournament soon, stay tuned!
Join us, make new friends, renew old friendships --- see you soon!
