CHESS this Wednesday, April 24, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

We meet again this Wednesday afternoon, April 24, 2024, from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time as we do every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon. Players come and go anytime, all ages and skill levels are welcome, from beginners to masters; there are no dues, and there is no purchase required (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!

This past Sunday's session saw quite a few players, including several youngsters and adults brand new to the club: There was Claudia with Zafar; Laura with Felipe, Daniel, Catalina and Alejandro; and, Anh and his sister Trammy! Welcoming them were Mike T., Kevin, Reza, Daniel C., Sam, Tony, Red, Evan, Lou, and Olaf Once again, however, no player was able to solve the day's chess puzzle on the first try...!

We may have, by popular demand, an unrated blitz & rapid tournament! Stay tuned for details, which would include players' not needing to be members of the USCF. In the meantime, perhaps we'll see you soon to help iron out the details as you get your game up, make new friends, and renew old friendships!
