COVID-19: Time Controls and Adjudications

Time controls are suspended with immediate effect in all NCCC tournaments except those hosted on the ICCF webserver over which we have no control. This does not mean play should cease but simply that reflection time is not to be counted.

Games with a stated adjudication date will be looked upon sympathetically, each on its merits, by our Tournament Controllers. New games in the NBKO and APA will be given a two-year time-span. The TMLC will continue with the current stated adjudication date as this is an annual event and must finish on time. The RGCT is unaffected in this regard as there are no end dates.

Winners' certificates will not be available in hard-copy until further notice but soft copies are available upon request from the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
