    The Leo Wardrup Memorial Cape Charles Cup committee has extended the deadline for regular registration for two more days until July 19, 2020.  
    Check out the calendar at:  CCC Calendar for the latest dates and links.  

    Although you can still register as late as August 10, 2020, registrants after July 19 will not receive or be able to pre-order any shirts, hats, or bags.  Because we will not have large gathering in Cape Charles where we can sell more regalia, we must know now how much to order.  Sorry.  

    Please register now so you can augment your wardrobe for the year.   To register before July 19, go to:
