ACF Fall at Bellarmine (San Jose, CA, 11/08/2015)

Postby Schroeder » Thu Aug 20, 2015 3:04 pm

Hello!

We are pleased to announce the Northern California high school site of ACF Fall 2015, to be held at Bellarmine College Preparatory on Sunday, 8 November 2015. ACF Fall is the year's premier introductory-level collegiate quizbowl tournament, suited for advanced high school teams looking for a more challenging tournament. We do hope that you join us at this event, as high school teams are no longer allowed to compete in collegiate ACF tournaments.

There will be a field cap of 12 teams for this tournament. We anticipate that rounds will go from 9:00 until approximately 4:30, followed by an awards ceremony. The exact round timings and other logistical information will be emailed to teams in the week before the tournament.

Registration
Registration for this event has two steps:
First, please write to us at jonchee.kao@berkeley.edu with your school name, number of teams, and buzzer/staffer information.
Second, fill out the central ACF Fall registration form at this site with all relevant information.

Fees
  • base fee: $95 per team
  • —$5 per working buzzer: maximum one per team (please do not bring buzzers that are not in good working condition)
  • —$15 per staffer: maximum two per team (staffers should bring their own laptops)
  • —$10 per 200 miles traveled one way

Note: the “New to ACF” and “New to quiz bowl” discounts available at collegiate mirrors of ACF Fall do not apply to high school teams and are therefore not applicable at this tournament. Packet submission discounts are also not applicable, since ACF will no longer accept packets submitted by high school teams.

If your team is interested in attending this tournament but is unable to do so because of financial constraints, please contact Chris Fleitas at cfleitas@bcp.org to negotiate payment.

Payment
Payment for ACF Fall will be processed through the ACF treasurer, Gautam Kandlikar. He will get in touch with you about how much your team owes, how to pay for the tournament, etc. Please contact Gautam with any questions regarding payment.

For more information about ACF Fall, refer to the Global Announcement of ACF Fall 2015 or email the editors at fall@acf-quizbowl.com.

Registered teams will be provided with more detailed information before the tournament. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me (Jonchee Kao, jonchee.kao@berkeley.edu) or Chris Fleitas (cfleitas@bcp.org). We hope to see you in November!

EDIT 09/01/2015: to reflect changes in fee structure
