Festival of Rejects: ACF Nationals 2024 (date poll)

Post by Adventure Temple Trail »

Now that 2024 ACF Nationals is over in all but its psychological aftereffects -- and the set is posted -- I'd like people to have a chance to read unused questions from their submitted packets in #packet on the Quizbowl Discord. In the past, informal gatherings after some Nats and COs have led to a queue of people making a little festival of question-reading. Given how many cool & zany submissions go unused and how much effort teams put in, my hope is that the "Festival of Rejects" becomes more of an entrenched Tradition to look forward to.

I've set some poll options, so we have lead time to find a date with a good crowd. Assume a start time of mid-evening/early night Eastern/Central time. If interest is overwhelming, a multi-day or multi-room experience is possible.
