CHESS this Wednesday, March 6th, at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

About two dozen or more players came to play chess over the boards this past Sunday at our usual Starbucks venue, with a bit of an overflow of players into the neighboring Munchy's Lounge! Sam was quick to be the first to solve the day's chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink! There with Sam were: Kevin, FBen, Jackson, Ben C., Tony, Mark, Trenton, Max, Daniel C., Daniel U. with Samantha, Juan, Mike T., Jordin, Lou, Evan, Myles with his Dad and little sister; Matthew, and... George and Mihaela with their kids Charlise, Alex, and Andre... Did I miss anyone, I think maybe I did...? There was no question that players had a lot of fun, going by the great games played, the laughter, and even the food and drink both at Starbucks and Munchy's!

We meet again this Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. on through closing, same place, and all ages and skill levels are most welcome. There are no dues, come and go anytime, and there's no purchase required (but it would be nice). There usually is a chess puzzle, and the first to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!

We also meet Sunday afternoons, same place and time, and next Sunday, March 10th, Daylight Savings Time starts! Our USCF-rated Club Tournament will be scheduled for Sunday, March 24th, and I will have full details in my next email, stay tuned, and see you soon!
