All ACF eligibility rules apply, except when they contradict the rules below.
This is a tournament for introducing collegiate novices to quiz bowl. Consequently, no high school teams or players are eligible.
Anyone (who does not break Rules 1 or 2) who has never played quiz bowl before is automatically eligible. Other academic competition does not count as quiz bowl for this rule.
Players meeting one or more of the following criteria must apply to the head editor for special permission to play:
If you have already completed your second year of college (calculated from time in college, not credits). Time in a post-secondary high school program does not count.
If you have ever finished in the top 20 in scoring at PACE NSC or top 35 in scoring at NAQT HSNCT, or played on a team that finished in the top 16 at NSC or t-21 at HSNCT.
If you ever lead a team in scoring that made it beyond the first round of the HSNCT playoffs, or lead a team in scoring that made the top playoff bracket of NSC [the last two years, this has been the top 24 teams].
If you have ever scored at least 30 points per game at any college tournament.
If you have ever won any college tournament.
Anyone who does not fall into any of the four categories listed in Rule 4 is automatically eligible to play.
Even if one of the rule 4 categories applies to you, you may still be able to play! Email Cody Voight at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply for special dispensation. To apply:
1) State which of the rule 4 points would render you otherwise ineligible
2) list when and how you achieved any of the accomplishments that led to your being otherwise ineligible
3) state succinctly why you want to play.
