2018 ACF Fall @ MIT (November 3, 2018)

Post by naneekeralc » Wed Aug 22, 2018 12:20 pm

I am pleased to announce the New England site of ACF Fall 2018, to be held at Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Saturday, 3 November 2018. Check-in will be from 8:30 am to 8:45 am in 34-101 (located in Building 34). Games will begin as soon as every team has checked in and will take place in Buildings 26, 34, and 36. A map of MIT's campus can be found here.

Getting to MIT
MIT is easily accessible via the Boston T system by taking the Red Line to the Kendall/MIT stop. We recommend teams avoid driving if possible, as parking is very difficult to find on the MIT campus. A list of parking locations on campus can be found here.

Registration
Registration for this event has two steps:
First, please write to us at clkeenan [AT] mit [DOT] edu with team name, number, and buzzer/staffer information.
Second, fill out the central ACF Fall registration form with all relevant information.

Fees
Base fee: $135
Buzzer: -$5/functional system
Staffers: -$10/staffer
Shorthanded fee (teams of 1 or 2 players): $60
"New to Quizbowl" discount: $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, 2017 is required to submit a packet, unless it is a high school team.

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 fall2018acf@gmail.com and they'll clarify.

Please submit packets to fall2018acf@gmail.com and use “ACF Fall 2018: [Team Name]” in the subject line.

Submission schedule
September 8: -$30
September 22: -$15 (-$30 if optional)
October 6: no penalty (-$15 if optional)
October 13: +$25
October 20: +$50
Packets submitted later than October 20 will receive an additional penalty.


Note Regarding High School Teams
High school teams are not allowed to register for this mirror of ACF Fall.

Field
The field is currently capped at 24. We may be able to expand depending on staff availability.

For more information, consult the global announcement or email the editors at fall2018acf@gmail.com

We look forward to seeing you in November!

As a reminder, please send me an email (my email address can be found in the original post) in order to register. I am not adding teams to the field until I receive an email regarding your registration. If you believe you sent me an email and you have not received a response from me feel free to send another email, PM me here, or contact me via whatever other methods.

The field is now two-thirds full, so get those registrations in soon! As a reminder, I am not counting teams registered until I receive an email from a representative of the team.

Due to space restrictions, we will not be able to accommodate more than 32 teams. Additional teams may join the waitlist, but will not be added unless a team drops from the field.

Congratulations to Amherst A, who defeated NYU A in the first game of an advantaged final to win the tournament! NYU A was the top undergrad team as well. Wesleyan defeated Harvard A in a one game final for third, and Harvard C defeated Columbia A in a one game final for the top Division 2 team. Full stats, including tiebreakers and finals, are available here. Thanks to everyone for coming out!
