Post by uws10024 »

I am pleased to announce the Texas site of ACF Fall 2016, to be held at Rice University 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.

Logistics
Check-in will begin at 8:00 A.M. with the opening meeting beginning at 8:40. Rounds will begin at 9:00. Upon your arrival, your team will need to submit any buzzers for discounts, and then we will collect money for lunch ($8 per sandwich from Jimmy John’s, free drinks). Lunch will take place between noon and 12:45, depending on when the food arrives. An email containing all information regarding logistics (building location, parking, payment, etc.) will be sent to participating teams a few days prior to the tournament.

Registration for this event has two steps:
First, please write to us at [email protected] with team name, number, and buzzer/staffer information.
