The SIR Chess sessions are held semi-monthly on the second and fourth Fridays of the month. We play from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm in the Game Room in the Pleasant Hill Senior Center, 233 Gregory Lane, Pleasant Hill, CA 92523.
Friday, April 12 and Friday, April 26
Friday, May 10 and Friday, May 24
Chess is a wonderful board game of strategy and skill that has been played worldwide for centuries. The SIR Chess group will gather semi-monthly to continue this tradition by pairing off for several games each session.
The Chess play sessions will be conducted in collaboration with SIR Branch 146 of Walnut Creek. Members may bring guests, and other seniors may occasionally drop in and play. As the chess group grows in popularity, we may hold special branch tournaments, and perhaps travel to play other SIR branches.
The costs are minimal. Sirs do not have to join the Pleasant Hill Senior Center, but may choose to do so. You may also choose to purchase their own chess sets. Similarly, some members may choose to purchase books on chess.
As an option, members may purchase lunch at the Pleasant Hill Senior Center prior to the Friday play event. Lunch is served for seniors beginning at 11:30 am for a modest cost of $7.00.
Contact Steve Schramm if you would like to play (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you own a chess set, please bring it to our events. See you there!
