CHESS this Sunday, June 30th at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

Join the fun and challenge of chess over the boards again this Sunday, June 30, 2024 at our usual Starbucks venue! We meet every Sunday and Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. through to closing time, as players come and go anytime! There are no dues, all ages and skill levels are welcome, and there's no purchase required (but it would be nice). There usually is a chess puzzle to solve, and the first to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice! Our Sunday sessions are quite busy with chess players, and may feature an impromptu, unrated Blitz tournament (G/5;inc.2) as others play simply for the fun of it, with or without a clock.

Last Wednesday at least a dozen players came by, and three were brand new to the club: Trey and Cassie, and Pete, all welcomed by Mark, Bert, Mike T., Ben C., Roman (who solved the sneaky-tough chess puzzle to win the prize), Aaron, Irakli, Tony, and Matthew! Several players stayed until closing time (8:30 p.m.).

So then, see you soon, and don't be surprised if you make new friends, and perhaps even renew old friendships!
