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 -£35 discount.
* For these purposes, all ACF tournaments, NAQT Division I or Division II SCT, NAQT ICT, and typical academic invitationals and summer opens count as regular collegiate academic tournaments. Trash or “hybrid” tournaments, College Bowl/HCASC, and tournaments played on NAQT's Collegiate Novice series sets do not.
The submission schedule for this tournament is:
November 12th, 2017: -£35
November 26th, 2017: -£15
December 10th, 2017: No penalty
December 28th, 2017: +£15
January 7th, 2018: +£35
After that, further penalties for each additional day late.
After January 14th, you will be dropped from the tournament, with no exceptions.
Please submit your packet to firstname.lastname@example.org
and direct questions about the tournament itself to this address. The actual e-mail with the attached half-packet should have a subject-line reading: "School + Team Letter (if applicable) HALF-PACKET." In order to meet a deadline, you must submit your half-packet before 11:59pm Pacific Time on that date. Half-packets should be submitted in Microsoft Word .doc or .docx format.
