ACF Fall @ UW (Nov 3)

Post by jeff.gdv »

Greetings all!

I am pleased to announce the Pacific Northwest site of ACF Fall 2018, to be held once again at UW on Saturday, 3 November 2018. We will meet in Savery hall (room TBD, you'll be emailed closer to the tournament date with info) and will start our first round at 9 AM; teams should arrive between 8 and 8:30 AM to check-in.

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

Base fee: $135
Buzzer: -$5/functional system
Staffers: -$10/staffer
Shorthanded fee (teams of 1 or 2 players): $60
"New to Quizbowl" discount: $100

Packet Discounts/Penalties
Any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2017 is required to submit a packet, unless it is a high school team. 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 2018: UW” in the subject line.

Submission schedule
September 8: -$30
September 22: -$15 (-$30 if optional)
October 6: no penalty (-$15 if optional)
October 13: +$25
October 20: +$50
Packets submitted later than October 20 will receive an additional penalty.

Note Regarding Highschool Teams
ACF has allowed high school teams to attend to this mirror of ACF Fall on a case-by-case basis. High school teams interested in attending this mirror should email [email protected] and [email protected] BEFORE registering so ACF can evaluate whether the team meets ACF’s specifications.
