2018 ACF Regionals @ Penn State (1/20/18)

Postby Victor Prieto » Mon Nov 13, 2017 12:20 pm

Hello,

Penn State Quiz Bowl will be hosting 2018 ACF Regionals on January 20th, 2018. I will be serving as tournament director.

Packet Submission
Any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament (either as a college student or as a high school student) prior to September 1, 2016 is required to submit a half-packet. House teams from host schools, as well as teams composed of people who have not played regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournaments prior to September 1, 2016, are not required to submit a half-packet, but may choose to do so by the no penalty deadline (December 10th), for a -$50 discount. More information about the set and packet submission deadlines can be found here.

Registration
Registration for this tournament requires two steps: filling out the official ACF registration form, and emailing me at vpp5054@psu.edu with the number of teams/buzzers/staff you intend to bring. The initial field cap for this tournament is 16 teams, with the limiting factor being staff. Registration will close on Tuesday, January 16th.

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 at gautam.acf@gmail.com with any questions regarding payment.

Base fee: $135
Buzzer: -$5/functional system
Staffers: -$40/staffer
Shorthanded fee (teams of 1 or 2 players): $60
New to quizbowl discount: -$100

Logistics
The tournament will take place in the Willard Building, exact rooms TBD. There is free parking available at the building. The opening meeting for the tournament will start at 8:45 am, with rounds slated to begin promptly at 9 am (this start time will be strictly adhered to).

This is Penn State's first time hosting a college tournament in a long time, although we've successfully hosted several high school tournaments in the past couple years. We're committed to running a high-quality tournament, and we hope you will attend!

Hello,

We've had 14 teams register, which leaves only 2 spots open under our initial field cap of 16. We're looking for additional moderators to help out at the tournament. If you are interested in reading that weekend, please email me. If you are interested but do not have a way to get to the tournament, also please contact me, as we will try to organize transportation with another team (or you can just contact that team directly if you know them). We've also modified our staffing discount - for capable readers, we will offer a -$40 discount. The scorekeeper discount will remain at -$10.

EDIT: The initial field cap is now full.
