We are pleased to announce the Northern California high school site of ACF Fall 2015, to be held at Bellarmine College Preparatory on Sunday, 8 November 2015. ACF Fall is the year's premier introductory-level collegiate quizbowl tournament, suited for advanced high school teams looking for a more challenging tournament. We do hope that you join us at this event, as high school teams are no longer allowed to compete in collegiate ACF tournaments.
There will be a field cap of 12 teams for this tournament. We anticipate that rounds will go from 9:00 until approximately 4:30, followed by an awards ceremony. The exact round timings and other logistical information will be emailed to teams in the week before the tournament.
Registration for this event has two steps:
First, please write to us at [email protected] with your school name, number of teams, and buzzer/staffer information.
Second, fill out the central ACF Fall registration form at this site with all relevant information.
- base fee: $95 per team
- —$5 per working buzzer: maximum one per team (please do not bring buzzers that are not in good working condition)
- —$15 per staffer: maximum two per team (staffers should bring their own laptops)
- —$10 per 200 miles traveled one way
If your team is interested in attending this tournament but is unable to do so because of financial constraints, please contact Chris Fleitas at [email protected] to negotiate payment.
Payment for ACF Fall will be processed through the ACF treasurer, Gautam Kandlikar. He will get in touch with you about how much your team owes, how to pay for the tournament, etc. Please contact Gautam with any questions regarding payment.
