On 11 October 2019 the North Circular Chess League (NCCL) will be holding the 60th Capes Trophy. It's a 5 minute per player per game Blitz tournament over as many as 10 to 12 rounds, depending upon entries.
Wouldn’t it be great to celebrate this achievement but getting as many teams as we can. Remember this is for teams of four players. Can each of the NCCL clubs make every effort to raise as many teams as they can.
This will be held in the hall at Wanstead House starting 7:30pm. Don’t forget a bar will be open for the duration of the evening.
Here you will find the history of the event - http://www.northcircularchess.co.uk/capes.html
Note the entry fee for each team is £10, all entry fees will be returned as prizes and John Capes’ son Ian will be adding additional funds. The more teams that enter the more prizes for teams and individuals there will be.
As always the exact structure and prize fund of the tournament will depend on the entries.
Deadline for entries is Wednesday 9 October
