UCSD will be hosting ACF Regionals on February 18, 2012. This is a packet submission event of regular college difficulty that will be playable by every circuit team. I will be the TD for this tournament.

The fees are taken from http://acf-quizbowl.com/documents/packe ... ines/#fees and are as follows:

Base fee - $120/team ($120 for one team from a school, $240 for two teams from a school, etc.)
Buzzers - -$5 each (No discount for broken buzzers; no maximum.)
Staffers - -$10 each (No maximum.)
Laptop - -$5 each (To encourage sites to run digital tournaments and keep stats properly, all hosts will be required to offer laptop discounts. Maximum 1 per team.)
Travel - -$10 per 200 miles (-$10 for travelling over 200 miles (one way), -$20 for travelling over 400 miles, etc.)
International - -$20 (For teams representing schools located in a different country than the tournament host.)
New ACF teams - -$25 (For schools who did not send a team to ACF Fall, Regionals, or Nationals between September 2009 and August 2011, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school.)
New quizbowl teams - -$75 (For schools who did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament since September 2009, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school. May be combined with new ACF team discount for a total new-team discount of $100.)

This is the packet discount schedule:

December 26, 2011: -$50 (You get an extra day for Christmas, what a deal!)
January 8, 2012: -$25 (-$50 for optional packets)
January 22, 2012: no penalty (-$25 for optional packets)
January 29, 2012: +$25
February 5, 2012: +$50

I know that it's winter break for most people, but the -50 discount is rapidly coming up for required packets. By the way, any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament (either as a college student or as a high school student) prior to September 1, 2010 is required to submit a packet for this event. Packets should be emailed to head editor Trevor Davis (TheBokonon@gmail.com) and include "ACF Regionals packet" and the name of your school in the subject line. In order to meet any particular deadline, your packet must be in his inbox by 11:59 pm PST on the stated day.

More information about the format and location of the tournament will be specified closer to the tournament day. You may post in this thread to indicate your interest in coming, but you must email me at auronigupta@gmail.com in order to register.

Field (number of teams, number of buzzers, number of moderators, laptop discount):

UCSD - 1, 1, several, n
ASU - 1, 0, 1, n
Caltech - 1, 1, maybe 1, n
Claremont - 1, 1, 0, y
UC Riverside - 2, 0, 0

Total: 6 teams, 3 buzzers, enough moderators, enough laptops

Count on ASU being in attendance. We'd like to have a second team, but I have a feeling we won't. We'll e-mail you and take care of the official registration as soon as we decide how many people we're sending.

Field update provided. There are still lots of spots left -- this will probably be the last SoCal tournament of the year given this year's sparse tournament schedule. Please email me to sign up if you have not already done so.

Field update provided. We have 8 teams, which is a good number, but only 2 confirmed buzzers. If anyone at all can bring a buzzer, please do so.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I count 3 buzzers.

You're right. So we need 1 buzzer in order to have a nice 8 team tournament, so I will cap the field at that number right now. We'll probably have a full RR, 4/4 split and round robin (10 games for everyone), playing ACF style finals if needed. If my plan to get that last buzzer falls through, then I'll have to nix the house teams and we'll do a double RR followed by ACF style finals if needed (same number of games for everyone).

UCSD house went undefeated to win this tournament. Caltech and Claremont tied with a 7-3 record to finish second and third respectively (based on statistics).

Full stats will be up whenever I have the patience to enter all the scoresheets again.
