CHESS this Super Bowl Sunday, February 11, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hello Everyone...!

Our chess club will still have a regular session for avid chess players this Sunday afternoon, February 11, 2024 from 3:00 p.m. to closing time at our regular Starbucks venue. The Super Bowl broadcast starts at pretty much the same time, and will run for a few hours, more than likely causing many of our regular chess players to take in the game, with most if not all rooting for the SF 49ers to win over the KC Chiefs!

Our next session after this Sunday is of course Wednesday, February 14th, ValDay, same time, same place where we meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon. All ages and skill levels are welcome, there are no dues, and there's no purchase required (but it would be nice).

Our session last Wednesday saw at least 10 players enjoy chess over the boards, despite some rather chilly, damp weather! There to play were Ben C., Tony, Mike T., Daniel (who solved a tough puzzle to win the prize), Sam, Bert, Irakli, Chris M., Moses, and Matthew! 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!

So then, here's hoping to see you soon, get your game up, and make new friends, or renew old friendships! Also, stay tuned for info on our next rated club tournament!
