ACF Regionals @ Rice

Post by Romero »

Texas Quiz Bowl, in coordination with Rice University, will host the Texas Edition of ACF Regionals on Saturday February 23rd and Sunday February 24th.

Location: We will be using rooms in the Humanities and Rayzor buildings on the Rice campus.

Time: This tournament will be the 2nd event of our weekend. This event will begin as soon as the first event ends. We approximate that the event will start at approximately 2 p.m. on Saturday. Further details regarding logistics and timing will be sent to registered teams.

Registration: Please register using this form. You MUST fill out this form to play this tournament. An email to us is not necessary/sufficient.

Packet submission guidelines are as follows, copied from the global announcement.
Packet Submission:
Every team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2011 is required to submit a packet in order to play in Regionals. Please note that, like last year, this requirement also applies to eligible high school teams. Further information can be found at the ACF Packet Submission Guidelines.

The submission schedule for this tournament is:
December 30, 2012: -$50
January 13, 2013: -$25 (-$50 for optional packets)
January 27, 2013: no penalty (-$25 for optional packets)
February 3, 2013: +$25
February 10, 2013: +$50
After that: My unending wrath, +$100, and a guarantee you will be dropped from the field if you haven't negotiated an extension before then.

Payment Deadline (NEW): February 16, 2013 (your payment must be postmarked by this date).

Please submit your packet to [email protected]; the actual email with attached packet should include the phrase "[name of school + A/B/etc. if applicable) PACKET" in the subject line. In order to meet any particular deadline, your packet must be in our inbox by 11:59 pm PST on the stated day.

Packet Penalties: Be sure to fully read the information contained in the Packet Guidelines. Any cases of incorrect formatting, plagiarism, or prohibited question types will result in hefty fees. The editors also reserve the right to send back any egregious cases to be fixed by the team in question, so be sure to do it right the first time.
Eligibility: Normal ACF eligibility.

Parking/lodging: TBA
