Tournament Format
It will be in mACF format (20/20 per match, 1 TU as tiebreak, no bouncebacks or powers, untimed).
Official bracketing structure for prelims and playoffs will be announced after field is determined. However, PPB will be used as tiebreaker in prelims and PPG in playoffs. A semi-final format of top 4 teams will be used for finals.

Fee Structure
$80 for first team
$70 for subsequent teams
-$5 for each working buzzer system (maximum two buzzer systems per school until otherwise specified)
-$5 for every 50 miles traveled

Did Arcadia A & B fall into a worm hole on their way over?

I believe they offsetted each of their teams because their full A & B teams weren't present.

We did the same thing for DN-QT this year. It's partially because we don't like having to email various quizbowl pundits about not being at full strength, but mostly because there's been an in-joke about Chris Chiego getting mad at inappropriately-named Arcadia C teams ever since our A-team was an hour late to a UCSD tournament due to traffic. They switched places with our C-team to take advantage of a first round bye.
