Post by SparkleOyster »

I am pleased to announce that the Great Lakes site of 2020 ACF Regionals will be held at Carnegie Mellon University on Saturday, January 25, 2020.

The tournament will take place at Porter Hall, with team check-in beginning at 8:00 in Porter 100 and gameplay beginning at 9:00. Jackie Wu will be the tournament director. Please direct any questions about this site to CMU Quiz Bowl at [email protected].

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 2020 ACF Regionals. ACF’s full eligibility rules are available here. Questions about eligibility should be directed to [email protected].

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

Fill out the central 2020 ACF Regionals registration form with all relevant information. The form is here: https://forms.gle/2muU28fo5GxczdPA8. The field for each site can be found here.

The field cap is 21, after which teams will be placed on a waitlist. Please register by January 20, 2020 at the latest.

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.

Payment should be submitted via cash or check (preferred) upon arrival to the tournament.

Late Penalty: 10$ per week after date of the tournament, with a cap at 200% of the original fee.

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. If they have not already requested them, teams will receive their distribution after registering. If you are unsure whether your team is required to submit a half-packet, please email ACF at [email protected].

Thank you to everyone who played or staffed ACF Regionals at CMU yesterday!

Ohio State defeated Penn State A to win overall, while Michigan State A claimed the undergraduate title over Michigan B. Ryan Bilger from West Virginia was the top scorer.

The combined stats seem to be in the wrong order because the "stage" standings a) do not include carryover games and b) do include finals games, meaning that (for example) Michigan A is listed ahead of Penn State A.
