Re: ACF Nationals 2014 qualifying system

It seems pretty obvious to me that teams like Carleton and others are only deserving of a spot in a nationals field if we play well enough to merit it. Any team at our level feeling robbed of their opportunity to play at the national level because they are the 41st best team in the country or whatev...

Re: CAHOOTS: A Spring Guerilla Tournament

That's pretty much how it will work, Mike. Some of this will also depend on how many people show up. Which might be a lot, considering this might be the only competitive multi-packet pun trivia event, you know, ever.

Re: CAHOOTS: A Spring Guerilla Tournament

No. Contributing to the tournament gives you the right to mirror it if you wish, but you certainly do not need to write anything to play.

That said, some sort of TV packet would be a welcome addition Mike.

Re: The Logic of an Upper Midwest ACF Regionals Site

The Minnesota/Wisconsin/Iowa circuit is a strange case, I think. If the U of M and Carleton choose to host mirrors, we save ourselves the drive and make a little extra cash for our team budgets.

Guys,

I'm assuming you have spring break Mar. 12 and Mar. 19. So what about Mar. 5 or Mar. 26? You would be in conflict with IO and Buzzerfest, but that is not near as bad as playing against ICT, Nats, or MUT.
