CHESS this Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

Eight players decided to spend part of Mother's Day last Sunday over the chess boards, and more players of all ages and skill levels are of course expected at this Wednesday afternoon's session (May 15) as well as next Sunday's (May 19). We continue to meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. on through closing time at our usual Starbucks venue, located at 1536 Kirker Pass Rd., in the Clayton Shopping Center, very near the intersection of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Clayton Rd.

There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, and the first player to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice! Last Sunday's winner was Sam, and there with Sam were Max H., Daniel C., Tony, Mike T., Lou, Kevin, and Larry with his very young chess-playing grandson, Jackson!

While our next club tournament will be an unrated rapid contest, it actually may not take place until sometime mid-June if not enough players are available for it next Sunday, May 19, 2024 since it was just put out there last week. Stay tuned for confirmation of the details, as well as confirmation of the dateline. In the meantime, perhaps we'll see you soon as you get your game on, and make new friends, even renew old friendships!
