Postby Robert Williams Avenger » Fri Aug 14, 2015 9:23 pm

Hello!

I am pleased to announce the Great Lakes site of ACF Fall 2015, to be held at Northwestern University 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 tournament will be directed by me, Dylan Minarik, and will be held in the Fisk/Locy Hall building complex on Northwestern's Evanston campus.

Registration
Registration for this event has two steps:
First, please write to us at quizbowl@u.northwestern.edu with team name, number, and buzzer/staffer information.
Second, fill out the central ACF Fall registration form at this site with all relevant information.

Fees
Base fee: $120 for one team from a school, $240 for two teams from a school, etc.
Buzzer systems*: -$5 each
Staffers: -$10 each No maximum.
Laptop: -$5 each Maximum 1 per team.
Travel: -$10 per 200 miles traveled one way
International**: -$20
New to ACF teams***: -$25
New quizbowl teams****: -$75

* No discount for broken buzzers; no maximum.
** For teams representing schools located in a different country than the tournament host.
*** For schools which haven't played an ACF tournament between September 2013 and August 2015, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school.
**** For schools which did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament since September 2013, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school. May be combined with new ACF team discount for a total new-team discount of $100.

Packet Discounts/Penalties
Any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2014 is required to submit a packet. High school players attending high school-only sites are included in this definition and are subject to the same discounts and penalties as college teams.

Half-packet templates will be sent out to your team after you have submitted the registration form. If you have questions on the submission guidelines, email them to fall@acf-quizbowl.com and they'll clarify.

Please submit packets to fall@acf-quizbowl.com and use “ACF Fall 2015: [Team Name]” in the subject line.

Submission schedule

11.59 PM PST September 27: -$15 (-$30 if optional)

Payment
Payment for ACF Fall will be processed through the ACF treasurer, Gautam Kandlikar. He will get in touch with you about how much your team owes, how to pay for the tournament, etc. Please contact Gautam with any questions regarding payment.

Note Regarding Highschool Teams
High school teams are no longer allowed to compete in Collegiate ACF Fall events. High school teams in the area interested in playing ACF Fall should instead sign up for the mirror at Northern Illinois University.

Field is currently at 21 or 22 teams once I confirm if Knox is bringing a C team or not. Sorry for not updating this promptly: several schools filled out the spreadsheet without e-mailing me, so I didn't know that they had registered. Thankfully everyone got in the field just fine, but it's critical that people read the post in full and e-mail me before registering so this doesn't happen again.

WUSTL signed up 2 more teams, bringing us up to full capacity. I will start a waitlist for teams to sign up for in case a team drops/we can expand the field, but a field expansion does not look likely for now.

The field has been expanded to 28 teams. We may look into expanding to 32 if we can secure enough rooms/moderators and if there's interest.

EDIT: We have reached our cap of 28. If there is more interest, I will start a waitlist again and look into expanding to 32.

Prelim stats are finalized at the above link. The first round of playoff stats, plus matches carried over from the prelims, are posted here. I have to leave now and Dylan will be taking over; he does not have access to my webspace, but if he sends me the files at the end of the tournament I will post them there, and of course I am giving him the files to otherwise do with as he pleases.

Case Western left after round 6. Despite their record, they were treated as placing for the last playoff bracket, so that there would be zero playoff brackets with byes instead of the two that there would have been if they were assigned according to their prelim placement.

Chicago D defeated Chicago A in the first game of an advantaged final for the overall title. Chicago A took the top Undergrad and Division II titles, while WUSTL won the Division II second-place trophy outright and withstood a series of tiebreakers to claim the second place Undergrad trophy as well. I will hopefully have some time tomorrow to get the playoff statistics posted.
