CHESS this Wednesday, January 17, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

Last Sunday's session at our regular Starbucks venue saw at least 23 kids and adults share the fun and challenge of chess over the boards, either to a great degree or a keen interest to start getting deeper into the game! Samuel was first to solve the day's chess puzzle to win a free tall Starbucks drink, and on the boards with him were Vin (with Dad Vincent and Mom Katherine); Gene and Bodie (with Dad Vince); Ajay and Rayden (with Dad John and Mom Rochelle); Daniel (with Mom Lisa); Theo (with Dad FBen); Sophia (with Mom Amparo); along with Red, Yancy, Tony, Sam, Max, Ben C., Mike T., and a new player, a senior citizen named John who's coming back to the game of chess! Did I miss anyone?

We meet again this Wednesday, January 17, 2024, same place, same time (3:00 p.m. to closing), come and go anytime, all ages and skill levels welcome, from beginners to masters! There are no dues, nor is there requirement to buy anything (but it would be nice). There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, and the first one who solves it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink!

We will have a USCF-rated club tournament on Sunday, February 4, 2024. For the info regarding the tournament, please see our previous email or website posting. The specs will also be repeated in the next email to you.

So then, see you soon, rain or shine! Come by, play, make new friends, renew old friendships!
