Creator of the "NFL Comes to ICCF" Tournament
During the 2007-08 NFL-season I also had the pleasure to
play ICCF-games against Jason, George and Glen. We shared
many great sundays together - exchanging moves in our games
while watching NFL on TV :-)
An idea came to my mind: While watching NFL on any given
sunday - why not play a small tournament online somewhere
on a server? Well - that was a bit too complicated for us
- and it might also have removed our focus from the most important
in our lives on a sunday afternoon: The TV-screen!
So - we went for something better! We invited other CC-friends
from ICCF - and suddenly we had 9 players! Everybody contributed
to the setup of this tournament - and suddenly we had this:
"NFL comes to ICCF - full contact correspondence chess" :-)
Unfortunately NFL denied us the use of our team-logos in
the crosstable - so we just settled for our team names! ICCF
did not have any objections - we got the necessary permissions
On the "NFL Comes to ICCF" home
page you will find links to our individiual profiles,
our teams and our cheerleaders!! Please feel free to enjoy
this event with us - games are available live with zero moves
delay!! Just click on the "Games" links for each
player or go to the tournament crosstable.
Other details: It is a non-rated event, 30 days for every
10 moves and we allow conditionals. Startdate is August 3rd
- same day as NFL.
And every player have paid 20 USD in entry fee - which we
will donate to some kind of charity.
