ACF Regionals 2014 Global Announcement

Post by vcuEvan » Fri Sep 27, 2013 10:14 pm

This is the official global announcement for ACF Regionals 2014, which will take place on February 22, 2014.

Editors:
Head Editor: Evan Adams
Co-Editors: Carsten Gehring, Matt Jackson, Ashvin Srivatsa, Adam Silverman, and Will Nediger

Hosts:
Note that we are now actively seeking hosts in most regions - please contact us at acfregionals2014@gmail.com if you're interested. Bidding will be open until November 2nd. Editors have preference here so their schools may be granted mirrors before the bidding deadline. These regions are rough guidelines: bid if you're interested and we'll try to make the most practical distribution of mirrors possible.

California: UCSD
Pacific Northwest and online: University of Washington
South: Western Kentucky University
Texas: Rice University
Great Lakes: Michigan
Midwest: University of Missouri
East Canada/Niagara: University of Toronto
Mid-Atlantic: University of Virginia (this Regional will be held on SUNDAY, February 23)
Northeast: Yale

Packet Submission:
Every team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2012 is required to submit a packet in order to play in Regionals. Please note that, like last year, this requirement also applies to eligible high school teams. Further information can be found at the ACF Packet Submission Guidelines.

The submission schedule for this tournament is: (note that these are Saturdays, not Sundays)
December 21, 2013: -$50
January 4, 2014: -$25 (-$50 for optional packets)
January 18, 2014: no penalty (-$25 for optional packets)
February 1, 2014: +$25
February 8, 2014: +$50
After that: +$10 for each additional day you're late. Teams that are required to submit a packet and do not won't be allowed to play.

Please submit your packet to acfregionals2014@gmail.com; the actual email with attached packet should include the phrase "[name of school + A/B/etc. if applicable) PACKET" in the subject line. In order to meet any particular deadline, your packet must be in our inbox by 11:59 pm PST on the stated day.

Packet Penalties: Be sure to fully read the information contained in the Packet Guidelines. Any cases of incorrect formatting, plagiarism, or prohibited question types will result in hefty fees. The editors also reserve the right to send back any egregious cases to be fixed by the team in question, so be sure to do it right the first time.

Please submit all questions/comments/etc. regarding this event to acfregionals2014@gmail.com, or post them in the thread. Running packet list (with deadlines/penalties) will appear below as soon as packets begin to come in.

I still need bids from this. I'd love to hear from all regions but there are particularly gaping holes in the South, Florida, Texas, California, the Pacific Northwest and Canada. Remember, if you host you get paid AND you don't have to write a packet!

Mirrors of ACF Regionals are now scheduled for Yale, UVA, Michigan, Western Kentucky, and the University of Missouri. I'm in the middle of talking to potential hosts in Florida, Canada, California, and the Pacific Northwest. (So if you'e still interested in hosting from one of those locations, please email me soon).

If you've already written this part of your packet don't worry about this, but please note that the 24/24 distribution in the first post has changed. Instead of 1/1 pop culture there is now 1/0 or 0/1 pop culture required, and the other 1/0 and 0/1 is of any academic category.

I think it should be 1/1 for what it's worth.

Is there any fee information for this? Are there still new team discounts for regionals?

Also, what's the approach to packet-writing when you have no science knowledge? Do your best and let the editors fix it, or just accept that your packet won't be used?

Information about tournament discounts can be found here.

I recommend writing the best questions you can. We plan to liberally combine packets, so a packet having one weak area doesn't mean it won't be used.

I'm still having trouble finding a host in Florida or in Minnesota. If anyone wants to volunteer from these places, please email me or post here. Any team that can't attend a mirror in person because of travel distances is welcome to play the Skype mirror.

We would host for Florida but we already did ACF Fall, and it wouldn't be fair to our senior members who haven't played so far this year because I keep making them moderate, and they will also be sitting out NAQT Sectionals to host. I hope someone in Florida or nearby volunteers soon.

I'd just like to verify whether the Colonel By A packet submission for the Jan. 4 deadline is a -$25 or a -$50 discount since they are a high school team.

The discount marker in the first post just indicates what date the packet was submitted by. High school teams and teams writing optional packets will still get the appropriate discounts.

Eligibility Question: One of the teams attending the Toronto site has a graduate student who finished his studies at the end of the fall term (Dec. 2013). Is he still eligible to play ACF regionals for his school?

If I'm understanding you correctly, Aaron, this should be fine; the ACF rules say:
For collegiate tournaments, players must be taking classes for credit (or doing equivalent undergraduate or graduate work) in a degree program, during the academic year in which the tournament takes place, under the aegis of the school for which they are playing.
(emphasis mine)

If this student was doing work towards his degree in Fall 2013, he is eligible to play for the entirety of the 2013-2014 competition year.

So I submitted Berkeley D's packet yesterday though the post shows that only up to Berkeley C has submitted and has been updated today. Is that a typo, or did you not receive our packet for some reason?

I received an e-mail from Nicholas Karas telling me there were only three Berkeley teams, and to treat Berkeley B as Berkeley A, Berkeley C as Berkeley B, and Berkeley D as Berkeley C. Is that not right?

Yeah, never mind, I was just updated with that information. My bad.

Hi,

I am looking to get information about how we will get our trophies for the Toronto mirror of ACF Regionals. Do you know what information we will need to provide for this?

Actually, Jerry contacted me about giving them to CMU for us to bring (apparently shipping them to other countries is difficult). I don't have them yet, though.

Yeah, sorry about that lacuna. The trophies will be coming with CMU.

I figured that might be the case, as a similar thing occurred with Buffalo bringing the ACF Fall trophies to McMaster. Thanks for confirming.

I sent out the packets to all the hosts except Rice (we'll send this out next week in case any problems with the set are discovered over the weekend). If you haven't received them, or if there's some problem, e-mail me.

This set is not yet clear, so please do not discuss it publicly if you have seen it.

There is a discussion group set up in the private forum "2014 ACF Regionals Discussion" for people who will not be playing the set in the future. A request to join the group can be submitted by going through the User Control Panel to the Usergroups section.
