CHESS this Wednesday, June 26, 2024 at Starbucks!

Hi Everyone!

Our next session of fun, challenging chess over the boards is this Wednesday, June 26th, at our Starbucks venue located at the Clayton Shopping Center, just up from the intersection of Clayton Rd. and Ygnacio Valley Rd., on the border of Clayton and Concord...! It promises to be an interesting session. All ages and skill levels are welcome, and may include a friendly, unrated seeded Blitz contest (G/5;inc.2), with 4 players or more, and an entry fee of $5. All entry fees to be returned as prizes, paid to 1st and 2nd Places in groups of 5 or less; and to 1st, 2nd and 3rd Places for groups of 6 or more.

We continue to meet every Sunday and Wednesday afternoons, from 3:00 p.m. to closing time. There are no dues, and there is no purchase required (but it would be nice); and, all ages are quite welcome. Last Sunday's session saw at least 17 players having fun with the game of chess. We welcomed two youngsters, both 7 years old: Cowen, with his chess-playing mom Erin; and, Michael, also an avid chess player, there with his parents! And, after a few years away from chess, we welcomed back Setsal to the club! There to welcome them all were David T., Mike T., Kevin, Lou, Jackson, Daniel U., Irakli, Ben C., Benoit, Tony, and Olaf... did I miss anyone?

So then, chess is quite active these hot summer Sunday and Wednesday afternoons at our cool Starbucks venue. We usually have a chess puzzle to solve, and the first one to solve it on the first try wins a free tall Starbucks drink of choice! Join us for the fun and social aspects of our sessions, and certainly be open to making new friends, and renewing old friendships!!
