ACF Regionals West at UCSD: 2/23/13

Post by the cactus »

UCSD will be hosting ACF Regionals West on Saturday, February 23. This is a packet submission tournament of regular difficulty.

Location: More information about the format and location of the tournament will be specified closer to the tournament day.

How to register: Fill out this form. You MUST sign up using the form if you want to play the tournament. No need to email us directly.

Packet Submission and Packet Penalties (taken from Chris's post in the ACF Regionals 2013 official tournament announcement):

Packet Submission:
Every team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2011 is required to submit a packet in order to play in Regionals. Please note that, like last year, this requirement also applies to eligible high school teams. Further information can be found at the ACF Packet Submission Guidelines.

The submission schedule for this tournament is:
December 30, 2012: -$50
January 13, 2013: -$25 (-$50 for optional packets)
January 27, 2013: no penalty (-$25 for optional packets)
February 3, 2013: +$25
February 10, 2013: +$50
After that: My unending wrath, +$100, and a guarantee you will be dropped from the field if you haven't negotiated an extension before then.

Payment Deadline (NEW): February 16, 2013 (your payment must be postmarked by this date).

Please submit your packet to [email protected]; the actual email with attached packet should include the phrase "[name of school + A/B/etc. if applicable) PACKET" in the subject line. In order to meet any particular deadline, your packet must be in our inbox by 11:59 pm PST on the stated day.

As alluded to above, extensions *may* be granted after the final February 10 deadline, but are at my discretion and will certainly not be granted if the request appears mysteriously at 11:58 pm the night of the deadline.

Packet Penalties: Be sure to fully read the information contained in the Packet Guidelines. Any cases of incorrect formatting, plagiarism, or prohibited question types will result in hefty fees. The editors also reserve the right to send back any egregious cases to be fixed by the team in question, so be sure to do it right the first time.

Please note that in cases of plagiarism in particular, I have now graded many a term paper and edited many a tournament, and I will catch you. This is doubtless because if you have decided to plagiarize from past questions/wikipedia/wherever, you are an idiot; I encourage you to cut your losses with that rather than compounding the situation with plagiarism.

Eligibility: Normal ACF eligibility holds here. When registering, keep in mind the change in ACF's Division II rules (briefly: at Fall and Regionals, any player who meets the definition of an undergraduate player and has also not played ACF Nationals is Division II-eligible).

Contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions about the UCSD site.

LOCATION: Registration will be in HSS 1138--NOT the auditorium we usually meet in, but a small classroom in the same complex on the first (bottom) floor of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building; here's a map. Most people park at P207 or P208 just north of HSS.

SCHEDULE: Registration will begin at 9 AM; the tournament should start by 9:30 AM.

Stats are now up.

Congratulations to Caltech A which went undefeated over 10 rounds to take first place overall and in Division 2. ASU A went 7-3 to win second overall, and ASU B was 6-4 for second place in Division 2.

Thanks to everyone who came, and all the staffers who helped out (UCSD people and Auroni)!
