This is the announcement for the 7th iteration of the Quaker Academic Competition at the University of Pennsylvania. The tournament will take place on February 13, 2016.

Questions / Tournament Format:
We will be using Yale BHSAT for this tournament.

We will endeavor to maximize the number of guaranteed games for all teams in attendance. In doing so, will use brackets and an ACF style final. All games will run in accordance with ACF rules (5 seconds to buzz, 5 seconds to answer, and 5 seconds after the end of a bonus part).

We will use the following fee structure:
$70 for first team
$50 for each additional team
-$5 for each working buzzer system
-$10 for each experienced staffer
-$10 for every 200 miles traveled
Minimum fee per team: $30
To register, please contact me at with the number of teams you plan to bring as well as any discounts you plan to claim.

Registration will be between 8:15 and 8:45AM in the Hall of Flags in Houston Hall. Games will be played starting at 9:00AM in TBD.

Current Field: (teams, buzzers, moderators)
Manheim Township (4/3/0)
Total: (4/3/0)

Feel free to contact me by email at or on the forums if you have any questions. We're aiming for a large tournament again this year so please email us as soon as possible to register. We hope to see you in February!

Unfortunately we're unable to reserve rooms on any suitable date this semester, so QuAC is cancelled this spring. However, Columbia will be mirroring BHSAT (which we were planning on using) on Sunday, February 14. Their announcement is here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18079&p=312732#p312732.

Columbia is mirroring BISB, not BHSAT.
