CHESS this Sunday, February 18, 2024 at Starbucks, Rain or Shine!

Hi Everyone...!

We're back to having quite a few players enjoy an afternoon and early evening of chess over the boards every Sunday and Wednesday, from 3:00 p.m. on through closing, at our regular Starbucks venue located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center! Players come and go anytime; all ages and skill levels are welcome, from beginners to masters; there are no dues; and, there's no purchase requirement (but it would be nice). 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!

Our next session is of course this Sunday, February 18, 2024, and as what happened during the last rain-stormy session, many chess players dropped by to play some pretty good chess in the fine coffeehouse ambiance, instead of staying home! There may be a Category 2 rain and wind storm sometime this weekend, but perhaps we will still see you at Starbucks?

Last Sunday was Super Bowl Sunday, so not much chess went on, for sure, that afternoon, as the broadcast of the game went well into the evening hours! Last Wednesday was a drizzly Valentine's Day, and as expected, less than a dozen players came by to play chess: Tony, Mike T., FBen, Daniel, Bert, and Mark among them, despite rather damp weather!

So then, let's get together over the chess boards, make new friends, and even renew old friendships as we stay healthy... and dry!
