2019 ACF Fall at Carleton University (Ottawa, ON) (11/02/2019)

Post by Benin Rebirth Party » Fri Aug 23, 2019 10:15 pm

I am pleased to announce that the Eastern Canadian site of 2019 ACF Fall will be held at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on Saturday, November 2, 2019. The tournament will take place at a TBD location, with team check-in beginning at 9:00 and gameplay beginning at 9:30. I will be the tournament director. Please direct any questions about this site to me at joesu235@gmail.com.

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.

This tournament will follow ACF’s official gameplay rules.

Registration for this event has two steps.
First, please write to joesu235@gmail.com with your team name, the number of buzzers and staffers with laptops you will be bringing, and whether you traveled more than 300 kilometres 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.

Instructions on how to pay will be emailed to you once you register. Please include in your registration if you are unable to perform an e-transfer before the tournament date with your preferred method of payment and/or if you need a formal invoice.

Fees - in Canadian dollars
Base fee: $160
New to quizbowl discount: –$100
Shorthanded discount (1-2 players): –$75
Buzzers: –$10 per functional system
Staffers: –$15 per staffer with functional laptop, plus, staffers get a lunch stipend.
Travel: –$10 per 300 kilometres 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, Canadian Hybrid, and MacVanity do not count) since September 2018, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school.

Pack 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-pack, 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-pack, 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

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

Outside staffers are likely needed to ensure every room is double-staffed. Any unaffiliated staffer who comes with a functional laptop will get $15 and lunch.

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