I'm happy to announce that Rice University will be hosting ACF Regionals for the Texas/Louisiana region on January 20th, 2018. Packet Submission
Teams with at least one person who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament (either as a college student or as a high school student) prior to September 1, 2016 is required to submit a half-packet to ACF. House teams at host schools and teams who do not satisfy the previously stated condition are not required to submit a half-packet, but can still earn a $50 discount if they submit one by the no penalty deadline (December 10th). Full information about this year's set and packet submission can be found in the global announcement (http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=20005

The tournament will take place in the Humanities Building, exact rooms TBD. Metered parking is available near the front entrance to campus, with cheaper lots towards Greenbriar (a full map with options marked will be sent out to teams the week of).
