CHESS this Sunday, May 12, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

There's lots more chess over the boards at our usual Starbucks venue this Sunday afternoon, May 12, 2024 as we meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time! Players can come and go anytime, there are no dues, and there's no purchase required. Be the first to solve the day's chess puzzle on the first try to win a free tall Starbucks drink of choice!

It was Irakli who was first to solve the chess puzzle on the first try this past Wednesday, and along with him over the boards were Evan, Bert, Mike T., Red, Will, Daniel C., and Ranen with son Noah.

We're close to scheduling an unrated Rapid Tournament. Details so far are: Quads or Groups of Six; Time Control = G/10;d2 with two games per pairing; Entry Fee = $20. All entry fees returned as prizes for 1st & 2nd Places in Quads or !st, 2nd & 3rd in Groups of Six. Location: Carl's Jr. Restaurant (across the side parking lot from Starbucks). When: Looks like the afternoon of Sunday, May 19th --- stay tuned!

Perhaps we'll see you very soon, and this Sunday promises to be fun, with -- as usual, all ages and skill levels welcome to play, make new friends, and renew old friendships!
