ANNOUNCEMENT: ACF Fall at Carleton College

Post by CaptainSwing » Tue Sep 20, 2011 4:22 pm

Carleton College will host ACF Fall 2011 on Saturday, November 5th, 2011.

This is a packet submission tournament; therefore, as per the ACF submission rules, any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2010 is required to submit a packet in order to participate in an ACF tournament in 2011-2012. This includes ACF Fall. As of last year, high school players are now included in this definition and are subject to the same discounts and penalties as college teams. Teams required to submit packets who do not submit one by the final deadline will be dropped from the tournament.

Rules and guidelines for packet writing/submission can be found in the general ACF Fall announcement thread: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12046

Base Fee: $120 per team

Packet Discounts/Penalties - Submitted before 11:59 PM eastern time on:
September 11, 2011: -$50
September 25, 2011: -$25 (-$50 for teams not required to submit packets)
October 9, 2011: No penalty (-$25 for teams not required to submit packets)
October 16, 2011: +$25
October 23, 2011: +$50
Submit packets to and use “ACF Fall 2011: [Team Name]” in the subject line.

Site Discounts:
Working buzzer: -$5

Is this the final field update (we only have 4 teams, for what it's worth)?
