ACF Regionals @ Kansas State U (01/26/19)

Post by thegreatgoatsby » Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:58 pm

Kansas State University will be hosting the Great Plains ACF Regionals site on Saturday January 26, 2019. As of now we plan on holding the tournament in Eisenhower Hall, to be confirmed. We will have registration starting at 8:15 a.m. and we plan on starting rounds at 9.

Registration

To register your team(s):

send an e-mail to us at ksuquizbowl@gmail.com with your team name and number, plus buzzer/staffer info.

AND

Fill out the ACF Regionals registration form.

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. 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, 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 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 18th, 2018: -$50
December 2nd, 2018: -$25
December 16th, 2018: No penalty
January 6th, 2019: +$25
January 13th, 2019: +$50
After that, +$10 for each additional day that you're late.
After January 20th, you will be dropped from the tournament, with no exceptions.

Please submit your half-packet to acfregionals2019@gmail.com. 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 Eastern Time on that date. Half-packets should be submitted in Microsoft Word .doc or .docx format.

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

"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.
