I am pleased to announce the UK site of ACF Regionals 2016, to be held at the University of Warwick on Saturday, 6 February 2016.

First, please write to us at [email protected] with team name, number, and buzzer/staffer information.
Second, fill out the central ACF Regionals registration form with all relevant information.

More information on fees will be announced shortly, but they should be similar to those used at this year's ACF Fall.

Oxford A cleared the field 10-0 to enter an advantaged final against Oxford B (9-1). Oxford B won the first round of the advantaged final by 240-235. Oxford A then took the final by 355-145.

Due to some appalling weather and the unreliability of cheap coach operators, the tournament ran dramatically late, but this was through no fault of Warwick who organised with aplomb. Thanks to Warwick for hosting and to ACF for the event.
