ACF Regionals 2014 Great Lakes @ University of Michigan

Post by rxailagan » Mon Nov 25, 2013 10:58 pm

Hey all, this a formal announcement for the University of Michigan's mirror of ACF Regionals on February 22nd, 2014. Interested teams should fill out this form to register through ACF. You're also welcome to email me at railagan@umich.edu or post in this thread if you have questions, but filling out the form is the only way to officially register. We have yet to reserve rooms so a field cap is TBD. We will be hosting this at our usual location, Mason Hall. Additional information will be forthcoming.

Packet submission:
This is a packet submission event so 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. This requirement also applies to eligible high school teams. Further information can be found at the ACF Packet Submission Guidelines.

Packet submission schedule (by 11:59 pm PST):
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.

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.

The distribution for this tournament varies slightly from the required 24/24 distribution on the ACF website.

History 5/5
Science 5/5
Religion, Mythology and Philosophy 3/3
