ACF Fall Texas Area at University of Oklahoma

Post by lasercats »

An ACF Fall mirror will take place Saturday, November 6th 2010 at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. Check-in will begin at 8:30, and the tournament will start at 9 AM in Dale Hall. Here is a campus map:

There is a large parking lot directly behind Dale Hall off of Elm St.

If you plan on staying a night in Norman, I recommend Sooner Legends:

This is a packet submission tournament, as subject to the guidelines posted on the following pages:
Fees and Packet Requirements: http://www.acf-quizbowl.com/documents/packetsub.php

ACF Fall Announcement Page: http://www.acf-quizbowl.com/acf_fall_2010.php

As per ACF standards, the base fee for teams is $120. Discounts are available as follows:

• $5 off for each [functional] buzzer set.
• $10 off for each staffer.
• $5 for a laptop: only 1 allowed per team.
• $10 off for every 200 miles you traveled (as determined by mapquest).
• $25 for every team that is new to ACF
• $75 off for every team that is new to quizbowl.
• $50 off for high school teams


Also, there are packet submission discounts and penalties as follows:

Packet submitted before 11:59 PM on:
Sept 19, 2010: -$50
Sept 26, 2010: -$25 (-$50 for teams not required to submit packets)
Oct 10, 2010: No penalty (-$25 for teams not required to submit packets)
Oct 17, 2010: +$25
Oct 24, 2010: +$50
After Oct. 24, 2010: The editors may grant one or more 24-hour extensions at an additional penalty of $10 per day.




If you plan on attending, please post here or email me at maggielarkin @ ou.edu. Include how many teams, buzzers and moderators you plan on bringing. Extra help will be very much appreciated Thanks!

I was wondering the same. LASA is considering coming up for this, but I won't know for sure until later in the week.
