ACF Regionals: Great Lakes at Northern Illinois

Post by TheDoctor » Mon Nov 10, 2014 3:54 am

NIU will be hosting ACF Regionals on 24 January. We have been given permission to host a high school division should there be enough interest for it; in compliance with IHSA rules, we will not allow Illinois high schools to compete in this tournament unless there is a dedicated high school division.

Registration
You can register using this form.

Packet Submission
Information about packet submission can be found on the global post.

Fees
Matthew Jackson wrote:Base fee: $120 for one team from a school, $240 for two teams from a school, etc.
Buzzer systems*: -$5 each
Staffers: -$10 each No maximum.
Travel: -$10 per 200 miles traveled one way
International**: -$20
New to ACF teams***: -$25
New quizbowl teams****: -$75

* No discount for broken buzzers; no maximum.
** For teams representing schools located in a different country than the tournament host.
*** For schools which haven't played an ACF tournament between September 2012 and August 2014; having anyone on your team(s) who has played an ACF tournament prior to the 2014-15 competition year invalidates this discount.
**** For schools which did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament since September 2012; having anyone on your team(s) who has played a regular collegiate quizbowl tournament prior to the 2014-15 competition year invalidates this discount. May be combined with new ACF team discount for a total new-team discount of $100.

[The laptop discount has been eliminated. Staffers are expected either to bring a device with them which is capable of displaying Word documents and PDFs, unless they get explicit confirmation from hosts that the site they are attending will be using printed paper packets.]

As with other ACF tournaments, payment will be centralized. Teams will pay their entry fee directly to ACF prior to playing the tournament, and ACF will pay host fees out thereafter. For more questions about payment, contact ACF treasurer Jerry Vinokurov.
Expressed Interest
Northern Illinois U, 1 team
U of Illinois, 1-2
