ACF Winter West

Postby manary » Sun Nov 16, 2008 3:56 pm

The California Institute of Technology is pleased to announce that we will be hosting ACF Winter on January 17th, 2009. Shamelessly copied from the internets:

Questions:
ACF Winter is a packet-submission tournament, and is intended as a regular-difficulty event, with questions slightly harder than those at ACF Fall but comparable to Penn Bowl 2007 or 2008. Per the ACF packet submission guidelines located at http://www.acf-quizbowl.com/documents/packetsub.php, "any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2007 is required to submit a packet in order to participate in an ACF tournament in 2008-2009. All ACF tournaments, NAQT Division I or Division II SCT, NAQT ICT, and typical academic invitationals count as regular collegiate academic tournaments for this purpose, but trash or 'hybrid' tournaments, College Bowl/HCASC, and tournaments played on NAQT 'invitational series' questions do not."

For teams required to submit packets, please refer to the guidelines above, and submit your packets according to the following schedule:
Packet submitted by Nov. 15: -$50
Packet submitted by Nov. 29: -$25 (-$50 for optional packets)
Packet submitted by Dec. 13: No penalty (-$25 for optional packets)
Packet submitted by Dec. 20: +$25
Packet submitted by Jan. 4: +$50
No packet submitted by Jan. 4: Dropped from tournament, unless prior arrangements have been made.

Fees:
Base fee: $120 per team
Buzzer systems: -$5 each
Staffers: -$10 each
Laptop: -$5 each (max 1 per team)
Travel: -$10 for every 200 miles traveled (one-way)
International: -$20
Teams new to ACF: -$25
Teams new to quizbowl: -$75
High school teams: -$50

To register or bug us, email: quizbowl [at] caltech [dot] edu
Details to follow.

If it hasn't been stated to you yet, UCLA should bring at least two teams.

Any way you could find an eleventh team? I'd much prefer ten games/eleven rounds + finals to whatever wacky double-bye schedule or nine-round tournament would probably go on with ten teams.

IMPORTANT STUFF

Please come here to Baxter Lecture Hall at 8:30am so we can actually start at 9am.

Hello Quizbowl teams,
Parking for the tournament will be north of Beckam Auditorium and the sign in will take place in Baxter lecture hall, which will start at 8:30. The rounds will start at 9:00. Remember to be prompt. There will be breakfast stuff at the meetinginto a top bracket and a bottom bracket for a play-off. There will be 7 round robins then a re-seating Also we need to know if you are bringing buzzers, when you wrote your packets, and such to figure out the financial aspect. A map of the campus that shows the parking and Baxter lecture Hall is here:

Quick Results:
After a nine-round round robin, we broke into top 4 and bottom 5 to allow for more competitive playoff games; top 4 played a full playoff round robin and bottom 5 played 3/5 of one. Stanford cleared the field by two games (10-1) with UCLA A in second (8-3). UCSD A tied with Irvine for third (7-4) and claimed the Undergrad and Division II championships.

You don't need to send them to anybody, just post them.

It looks like some games are missing in the stats. I know the stats are missing for the second game between Stanford A and Irvine. Any chance of those games being entered in, or are the stats sheets lost forever?

Brian, do you have personal stats for your side? If so then we can fill in that game.

Irvine: 315 points, Dwight 9-0, Ray 1-1, Matt 1-0
Stanford: 265 points, 9 total tossups (don't know who), 1 neg (Kevin)

The other missing game is Stanford B vs. someone in the bottom bracket, I think, unless they played 11 games, in which case the forfeit is erroneous.
