Hi everybody! This is the official announcement for the University of Missouri's mirror of ACF Regionals in Columbia, Missouri on February 22nd, 2014. Teams interested in attending should fill out this form. If you have any questions, please feel free to email, but official registrations will only be taken through the ACF form. We are still waiting on room reservations. I will update this thread when we have information about the location of the tournament.

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; 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, 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
Fine Arts 3/3

I find it interesting that outside individuals had to update the field and post the stats. Everything go ok?
