2016 ACF Fall SoCal at UCLA (5 Nov 16)

Post by gaurav.kandlikar » Mon Aug 15, 2016 12:39 pm

Hello!

I am pleased to announce the Southern California site of ACF Fall 2016, to be held at UCLA on Saturday, 5 November 2016. ACF Fall is the year's premier introductory-level collegiate quizbowl tournament, and we do hope that you join us at this event. I will tentatively cap the field at 12 teams, but expect this number to increase as I secure more staffers. Information regarding tournament start time and location will be updated here when available.

Registration
Registration for this event has two steps:
First, please write to us at gaurav.kandlikar@gmail.com with team name, number, and buzzer/staffer information.
Second, fill out the central ACF Fall registration form at this site with all relevant information.

Fees
Base fee: $135
Buzzer: -$5/functional system
Staffers: -$10/staffer
Shorthanded fee (teams of 1 or 2 players): $60
"New to Quizbowl" discount: $100
For schools which did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament (exclusively Novice tournaments do not count) since September 2013, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school

Packet Discounts/Penalties
Any team with at least two people on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2015 is required to submit a packet. High school players are exempt from this definition, are not permitted to submit packets, and pay fees as determined by their site hosts.

Half-packet templates will be sent out to your team after you have submitted the registration form. If you have questions on the submission guidelines, email them to acffall2016@gmail.com and they’ll clarify.

Please submit packets to acffall2016@gmail.com and use “ACF Fall 2016: [Team Name]” in the subject line.

Submission schedule
The submission schedule is as follows:

11.59 PM PST September 10: -$30
11.59 PM PST September 24: -$15 (-$30 if optional)
11.59 PM PST October 8: no penalty (-$15 if optional)
11.59 PM PST October 15: +$25
11.59 PM PST October 22: +$50
After October 22: +$10/day until October 29; teams who are required to submit a packet and do not submit one by November 1 will not be allowed to play.

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 at gautam.acf@gmail.com with any questions regarding payment.

Note Regarding Highschool Teams
High school teams are no longer allowed to compete in Collegiate ACF Fall events.

Thanks to everyone who came to Westwood yesterday!

Congrats to UCSD A (P.C, Robin, Ashok, and Jonathan), who went 9-1 in a double round robin to win this tournament. UCLA A came in second place with a 7-3 record. Claremont was the Undergrad champion. Steven Kurniawidjaja from USC was the top scorer.

Special thanks to Eddie Kim and Isaac Hirsch for helping staff.
