The tournament will be around 10 untimed rounds of 20 tossups and 20 bonuses. The tournament will be run on ACF rules; in short, there are negs but no powers or rebounding bonuses. Teams will be bracketed for round-robin prelims, then re-bracketed for round-robin playoffs. If necessary, an advantaged final will be played. The final tournament format will be determined when the field solidifies.
Check-in will start at 8:00 and run until 8:45. Please arrive before 8:30 so you can catch our breakfast of bagels and tasties and we can get round 1 started around 9:00. The final playoff rounds and award ceremony will conclude around 6:00.
$80 for the first team from a school

-$5 for each working buzzer set
-$10 for each experienced staffer
$40 minimum fee per team
