2019 ACF Fall at Florida (11/02/2019)

Post by Crazy Khan Tech » Sun Aug 25, 2019 12:54 pm

I am pleased to announce that the Florida site of 2019 ACF Fall will be held at the University of Florida on Saturday, November 2, 2019. We are waiting on room assignments, but we anticipate the tournament will take place at Matherly Hall, with team check-in beginning at 8:15 a.m. and gameplay beginning at 9 a.m. Jonathen Settle will be the tournament director. Please direct any questions about this site to him at jonathenksettle@ufl.edu.


Eligibility
In general, teams where players are all attending the same school and all taking at least one class for credit during the 2019-2020 school year are eligible to play 2019 ACF Fall. ACF’s full eligibility rules are available here. Questions about eligibility should be directed to eligibility@acf-quizbowl.com.

Rules
This tournament will follow ACF’s official gameplay rules.

Registration
Registration for this event has two steps.
First, please write to knecht.zachary@gmail.com with your team name, the number of buzzers and staffers with laptops you will be bringing, and whether you traveled more than 200 miles one-way.
Second, fill out the central 2019 ACF Fall registration form with all relevant information. The form is here: https://forms.gle/jeavKYCaCvGJaQNq5. The field for each site can be found here.

Fees
● Base fee: $150
● New to quizbowl discount: –$100
● Shorthanded discount (1-2 players): –$75
● Buzzers: –$10 per functional system
● Staffers: –$15 per staffer with functional laptop
● Travel: –$10 per 200 miles traveled one-way
The "new to quizbowl" discount is intended for schools that did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament (exclusively Novice tournaments do not count) since September 2018, 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 (either as a college student or as a high school student) prior to September 1, 2018, is required to submit a half-packet, unless it is a high school team attending a high-school-only mirror. If you are unsure whether your team is required to submit a half-packet, please email ACF at fall@acf-quizbowl.com.

The submission schedule is as follows (your submission must be sent to fall@acf-quizbowl.com by 11:59 PM PDT):
● September 7: –$30
● September 21: –$15 (–$30 if optional)
● October 5: no penalty (–$15 if optional)
● October 12: +$25
● October 19: +$50

Packets submitted later than October 20 will receive an additional penalty of +$10 per day starting on October 21.

High School Teams
High school teams are not allowed to register for this mirror of ACF Fall.

A variant of this has gone out to all teams, but posting here for reference. Please note the location is not Matherly or Little like normal.

LOCATION:
We will host the tournament in the Classroom Building 105, located at 105 NW 16th St, Gainesville, FL 32603. I have attached an image of a parking lot to park at and the walking directions.

REGISTRATION:
Please arrive between 8:00 and 8:30 AM for registration. The opening meeting will start at 8:45 AM, and the tournament will start promptly at 9 AM. We will host the opening meeting in Room 210.

STATS:
To make it easier to get the tournament started, I'd prefer to have your rosters in advance so I can enter them into the stats program. Can you send me them before Saturday? First and last names please.

DETAILS:
The current field is:

Team (number of teams/buzzers/staffers)
Florida (4/2/4)
NCF (2/2/0)
UCF (3/3/3)

With 9 teams, there will be a 9 team round robin with byes consisting of 9 total rounds with each team playing 8 games. After that, we will rebracket into the top 3 teams, middle 3 teams, and bottom 3 teams. All teams will play another 2 games in 3 rounds. This ensures we will have enough packets to correctly play off all finals scenarios.

If you have any questions/comments/concerns about the above, please reach out to me.

*Edited tournament format.

Thank you to everyone who came out to ACF Fall! An additional thanks to our staffers who ensured everything ran smoothly: Alex Shaw, Tracy Mirkin, Cody Johansen, Peter Torres, and Taylor Harvey.

Florida A cleared the field to win the Overall and Undergraduate titles, with UCF B coming in second for both.

In Division II, Florida C got first and NCF A took second.

All the stats can be found at the tournament's database page. If there are any statistical errors (name misspellings, incorrect scorings for a round, etc), please get in touch with me!
