Hello!

I am pleased to announce the Upper Midwest site of ACF Fall 2015, to be held at University of Minnesota on Saturday, 7 November 2015. ACF Fall is the year's premier introductory-level collegiate quizbowl tournament, and we do hope that you join us at this event. The event will take place at Blegen Hall on the West Bank and will start promptly at 9:00 AM. Teams should show up by 8:30 AM at Blegen 440 to check in.
