CHESS this Sunday, December 10th at Starbucks!
A great group of players came by last Wednesday at our regular Starbucks venue to enjoy an afternoon and evening of chess over the boards. (Sam, Ben C., FBen, Bert, Red, Mike T., Irakli, Morgan, Will, and a new player, also named Will) Interestingly, most of the players had a chance to solve a chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks beverage, but no player was able to solve it! (It was that tough, mate in two moves, solved only after the key first move was given.)
We meet again this Sunday afternoon, December 10, 2023, as we do Wednesdays, from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time. Come and go anytime; all ages and skill levels are welcome. There is no purchase required (but it would be nice), and... there are no dues! There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, and the first one to do so on the first try wins a free tall drink!
See you there to enjoy the fun and challenge of chess over the boards, and to make new friends and renew old friendships!
