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.

Hey Taylor --- is this still scheduled for 11/7? Wasn't sure if there were concerns with the Vandy game.

Thanks.

Due to the UF homecoming game on the 7th, we have officially rescheduled for Sunday the 8th instead. This was cleared with the teams already registered and hopefully it will make travel and parking much easier for all.

Hey, I'm not our team contact anymore, but is there info about time/place for tomorrow? Emma has been having trouble posting here and is wondering if she missed an email somewhere along the line. Thanks!

Hey Adam,

From what I understand from Taylor and the UF folks, they want people checking in at 8:30 AM tomorrow at Matherly Hall (northeast corner of campus). Intended start time is 9.

Parking should be pretty available on the weekends, particularly in front of Tigert Hall (see http://campusmap.ufl.edu/); if that fails, for whatever reason, street parking in the neighborhoods just north of campus is almost always an option.

EDIT: I just emailed Emma (per the spreadsheet of teams from the global ACF Fall thread) with Taylor's email.
