This is an announcement for GUERRILLA IV. This tournament will take place on 3/31 after the ICT finals in the ICT hotel. We will order pizza.
This is an open tournament. Anyone can play.
As the name of the tournament implies, this is a guerrilla tournament, meaning that it will not be centrally edited. It'd be great if someone not playing in this tournament could receive the packets and remove duplicates (and even better if someone wanted to do minimal editing), but it's likely packets will just be read ad-hoc by the writers.
Anyway, please write a packet of 24 (or more) tossups (no bonuses) following something approximating standard ACF distribution. You have some leeway here, but make sure the regular categories are at least included to some extent.
In terms of difficulty, please aim for "Regionals Plus", i.e. somewhere around the level of BARGE or Minnesota Open.
Also, this year I'm imposing a rule of NO THEMES. After 3 years of playing themed packets, I think these are played out and the tournament as a whole will be more enjoyable without them.
This tournament is free to anyone playing on a team that writes a packet. If there's enough interest in a second bracket for people that didn't write a packet, you'll be able to play for a fee of somewhere between $5 and $10 that will go towards buying food for the people who did bother to write questions. However, there's no guarantee that this bracket will actually materialize so you might as well just write a packet.
