2022 ACF Fall Nationwide (Online @ Northfield)

Post by oriley »

Greetings! The Northfield Quizbowl team is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the national high school mirror of 2022 ACF Fall on Saturday, October 15, 2022 over Zoom and Buzzin.live.

This mirror is open to any high school team regardless of location, though schools in Illinois should look into the in-person mirror at Auburn. ACF Fall is a suitable difficulty for teams that are comfortable playing “high school regular” difficulty or NAQT’s IS sets. The field cap is set tentatively at 18 teams, though we may expand if we have sufficient staff.

The tournament will begin at 9:00 AM Central Time, and all teams will be guaranteed at least eight games regardless of field size.

This tournament will adhere to ACF’s general gameplay rules. Rules specifically pertaining to online tournaments have been rendered in blue. To prevent cheating, all players will be required to have both of their hands and their screen in view of a camera. This may be easily accomplished with a second camera angle, or by buzzing on a phone. For this reason, unfortunately we will not be able to permit any camera exemptions. Those who have issues with Internet who wish to play this tournament might be able to inquire as to whether their school would allow their team to use a classroom for the day, for example.

Team Registration
Fill out this registration form to register for this tournament. The field for each site can be found here. The deadline to register is Tuesday, October 11 at 10:00 PM Central.

  • Base fee: $120
  • Shorthanded discount (1–2 players): −$60
  • Staffers: -$25 per staffer. Staffers must register in advance with this form.
Independent staffers will be paid $25, and must register in advance with this form.

Teams must email me their plan for payment at the latest by 10:00 PM central on the day before the tournament (Friday, October 14) or they will be dropped from the field. We prefer a check, but please reach out if you prefer a different payment method. My email is oriley1201 AT icloud DOT com.

Packet Submission
High school teams are NOT required to submit questions in order to play ACF Fall. Those that wish to anyway may see the set announcement post for details.
