CHESS this Sunday, June 9, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

Just a short note this time to say we meet again as usual this Sunday, June 9, 2024 at our usual Starbucks venue, from 3pm to closing, as players come and go anytime. All ages and skill levels welcome, no dues, no purchase required but, hey, it would be nice. We can expect to see at least a couple players new to the club, based on recent phone contacts with me. There may also be an impromptu Blitz contest (time control G/10;inc.2), and other features, including a chess puzzle to solve, with the first player solving it on the first try winning a free tall Starbucks drink!

Last Wednesday's session was a success, with about a dozen players, and with Ben providing the day's chess puzzle, not an easy one for sure given several attempts, but one that Matthew solved on his first try!

Perhaps see you at Starbucks, with you on your game and ready to make new friends, and in some instances, to renew old friendships!
