ACF Regionals @ Swarthmore (1/26)

Post by Thaumatibis gigantea » Tue Nov 06, 2018 4:29 pm

Swarthmore College Quizbowl is pleased to announce that we will host Mid-Atlantic site of this year's ACF Regionals on Saturday, January 26, 2019.

To register, you must: AND
  • E-mail us at swarthmorequizbowl [AT] gmail [DOT] com with your number of teams, buzzers and staffers.
Base fee: $135
Buzzer: -$5/functional system
Staffers: -$10/staffer
Shorthanded fee (teams of 1 or 2 players): $60
New to quizbowl discount: -$100

"New to quizbowl" discount is intended for schools that did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament (exclusively Novice tournaments do not count) since September 2017, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school.

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, 2017 is required to submit a half-packet. Teams composed of people who have not played regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournaments prior to September 1, 2017, are not required to submit a half-packet, but may choose to do so by the no penalty deadline for a -$50 discount. For further details, please see global tournament announcement.

We will be conducting this tournament in Kohlberg Hall. Swarthmore's campus is accessible via the Swarthmore stop of the SEPTA Media/Elwyn regional rail line which connects to bus and Amtrak stops in Philadelphia. Free guest parking is also available in the Whittier and Ben West lots for the day.

Registration will open at 8:00 AM on the tournament day with a goal of starting rounds by 9:00. Further information will be distributed to registered teams closer to tournament day.

We have a tentative field cap of twelve, which can be expanded pending additional volunteer or team staffers.
FIELD (teams/buzzers/staffers):
Rutgers (3/0/0)
Johns Hopkins (3/3/0)
UVA (1/0/0)
Princeton (2/1/0)
Penn (4/2/0)
(13 teams)

Any further questions can be directed to me via PM or e-mail.
