I am pleased to announce the South Central site of ACF Fall 2016, to be held at The University of Kentucky 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.

The tournament will be held in the Blazer Dining building, with check-in running from 8:00 AM to 8:40 AM and matches beginning by 9:00 AM. We are setting an initial soft cap at 16 teams, but expect to raise the cap as we confirm more staffers, up to a maximum of 28 teams.
