2016 ACF Fall @ Mizzou (November 5th, 2016)

Post by Make sure your seatbelt is fastened »


I am pleased to announce the Midwest site of ACF Fall 2016, to be held at The University of Missouri-Columbia 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. Our field will be capped at ten teams, with a likely expansion once we secure enough staff.

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

ACF is currently debating a slight restructuring of its fee schedule. The final fee schedule will be announced by 1 September 2016. Teams can expect the base fee to increase by ~10%.

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 [email protected] and they’ll clarify.

Please submit packets to [email protected] 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 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 [email protected] with any questions regarding payment.

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

For more information, refer to the Global Announcement of ACF Fall 2016 or email the editors at [email protected].

We hope you can make out to our site!

Since no one has announced any results for this yet, here are some initial results:

WUSTL A beat Missouri C in the first round of an advantaged final to win the tournament as well as the Undergraduate championship. WUSTL B came in 3rd and was the top Division II and 2nd Place Undergraduate team. I'm pretty sure Oklahoma was the 2nd place Division II team, though I can't be sure since playoff results haven't been posted yet. Thatcher Chonka of Oklahoma was the top scorer with 95 PPG.

Preliminary stats are already here and presumably playoff and combined stats will be posted there at some point.
