ACF Fall @ UChicago (11/02/2019)

Post by benmillerbenmiller » Tue Aug 27, 2019 8:48 am

I am very pleased to announce that the Midwest site of 2019 ACF Fall will be held at the University of Chicago on Saturday, November 2, 2019. I will be directing this, so please direct any questions to Ben Miller at benmillerbenmiller@gmail.com.

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 benmillerbenmiller@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 encouraged to play the high school-only mirror of ACF Fall that will also be hosted at UChicago on November 2. More information on that event can be found here, and questions about it should be directed to brad.a.fischer@gmail.com.

Thank you to everyone who came out to play and staff today!

Congratulations to Chicago Red (Adam Klein, Vivek Sasse, Daniel Yang, and Yohhan Kumarasinghe), who cleared the field and put up one of the best statistical performances of any team playing this set. Second place went to Chicago Green (Teddy Knox, Jonathan Wang, Mayokun Abiona, and Buduka Ogonor), while Chicago Purple (Andy Huff, Raunak Kundagrami, Gowri Rao, and Gayathri Rao) took third.

Full stats can be found here . Hope to see you all at more UChicago events in the future!
