A couple of things to keep in mind as you finish up your submission:
1. Make sure you follow the Half-packet distribution we have assigned you.
2. Follow the ACF Formatting guidelines (link).
If your submission strays far from these guidelines, we will return it to you and ask that you re-send us a well formatted submission. These are the most common offenses:
a. Don't randomize your submission.
b. Group questions by category. That is, 5 lit tossups, then 5 lit bonuses; then 5/5 of history, then 5/5 of science, ...
c. Don't number your questions.
d. Write in TNR, size 10, 1 inch margins.
If you'd like to see an example of a well-formatted submission, drop us a line.
3. Include your team name and the names of all players who wrote questions for the packet at the top of your submission. E.g.Berkeley A wrote:ACF Fall 2014
Packet by Berkeley A (Ankit Aggarwal, Lukas Vlahos, Ilyas Bayramov, Benjamin Gammage)

That said, we do hope that hosts are proactively contacting regional programs and are happy to help hosts with this process.
Looking forward to getting a few more submissions tonight!

Team contacts to BCC
Editors to CC
This is a long email, please bear with me. I will post a copy of the email on the ACF Fall announcement thread so you can always reference it in the future.
If you are receiving this email you are listed as a team contact for your team for ACF Fall 2015. I am the ACF treasurer Gautam Kandlikar. Please note: Many of you may have my private email address, I'm requesting that if you need to get in touch with me, use firstname.lastname@example.org for all communications.
First of all, thank you for signing up to play. We have 179 teams signed up, which is awesome! If you have any questions about signing up more teams, please reach out to your editors (who are CCd). The editors are putting in a ton of great effort, and I think you will really like the tournament when you play it in November.
I wanted to write to you about how payments are going to work this year. So if you have any questions about that, I hope this email clears. If you still have further questions, please reply to this email.
Canada/UK teams: The below may not apply to you. I will be emailing you separately about payments.
If your institution requires that vendors fill out a W9 for reimbursement, please let me know ASAP. If you are not sure what this is, please talk to your club advisor or a representative from your student group/activities admin.
We have fancy new invoices for ACF Fall and future ACF tournaments. About half the universities and schools registered should have received an invoice. For the rest of the teams - you should be receiving these over the next few days. If you need one ASAP just drop me an email.
If there is anything wrong in your invoice, or you notice any errors, just send me an email. I'll fix it and send you a new link.
If you need a physical invoice, you should be able to print one out from the link in your email. If you are not able to do that, drop me a line and we will work it out.
Old school checks sent via snail-mail are best for now. All checks should be made payable to "Academic Competition Federation" and mailed to the Houston, TX address listed on the top left of the invoice.
I've heard from a few teams that electronic payments are more convenient. If you are in the same boat, please drop me an email stating your preference.
Receipt of payment
If you need a receipt, just let me know via email, and we can arrange that.
If there are any other questions you about payments, or would like to work out the details for your payment arrangements... you know the drill: drop me an email at email@example.com
Thanks, and I hope you enjoy ACF Fall!
