CHESS Wednesdays December 20th & 27th, 2023 at Starbucks!
Our next sessions of fun, challenging chess over the boards will be on the next two Wednesdays, December 20th of this week, then Wednesday December 27th of the following week at our usual Starbucks venue. We won't start meeting again on Sunday afternoons until Sunday, January 7, 2024. We will continue meeting every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon in 2024, same time, from 3:00p.m. to closing, come and go anytime, etc., and there usually is a chess puzzle to solve, with the first player solving it on the first try winning a free tall Starbucks beverage of choice!
Our session this past Sunday saw about 19 players and family members enjoy an afternoon and early evening of chess at our usual Starbucks venue. We welcomed two new players, Rayden there with his Dad John, and Daniel, there with his Mom Lisa! Welcoming Rayden and Daniel were Kevin, Red, Yancy, Ben C., Mike T., Sam, Samuel, FBen, Tony, and Irakli, with IMRonald coming by to work with Paige's sons Ian, JJ, and Kayen on their chess games! In addition, the day's chess puzzle was finally solved on the first try by Yancy, after several players gave it a go!
A very special thanks goes to Kevin for presenting the chess club's organizer with quite a unique memento in recognition of the 15th full year of the founding of the Contra Costa Chess Club!! Many, many thanks also to all those that were there that shared in the enjoyment of the surprise!
So then, come on by these next two Wednesday afternoons, get your chess game up, make new friends, renew old friendships, and smile along with the happy holidays!!
