The Ohio State University Academic Team apologizes for the late notice but is pleased to announce that we will be holding a mirror of COTTAGE Bowl after ACF Fall on November 8, 2014.

This is an open tournament. You do not have to play ACF Fall to play; everyone is eligible. However, we would like people from the same school to play together if possible.

The original COTTAGE Bowl announcement can be found here.

Fee structure:
Base fee per team: $10 per regular (non-finals) round played, capped at $80
Travel discount: -$10 per 200 miles
Buzzer discount: -$10 each
Staffer discount: -$15 each
Teams with 1 or 2 players: -$15 discount

To sign up, please email Tyler Friesen at friesen.15[at]osu[dot]edu.

EDIT: Due to the uncertainty about how many teams are going to attend, we are making the following changes to the fee structure: The base fee will be $10 per regular (non-finals) round played, capped at $80. Additionally, we are adding a $15 discount for teams with 1 or 2 players, to encourage players who want to participate even if the rest of their team wants to return home after ACF Fall.

So is this beginning whenever ACF Fall ends up finishing, meaning that it's going to start at something like 6pm?

Yes, that's the plan. It will end up going pretty late, but we felt this would be more convenient for those teams which are also competing in ACF Fall than having the tournaments on separate days.

This tournament is like 15 rounds of 20/20. I assume you're doing some sort of shorter version of it?

That's correct. The exact number of rounds will depend on the number of teams that sign up, but we certainly won't be using all 15 packets. We're planning to provide at least 5-7 rounds to each participating team. We're actually working on a revised fee structure to reflect the fact that this will be a shorter tournament, which will be posted tomorrow as soon as we get the details hashed out. In the meantime, I can promise that the fees won't be more than the currently posted amounts.

The original post has now been updated with the new (reduced) fee structure.

Out of curiosity, is this a thing that actually happened?

OSU played us on one of the packets, and I'm assuming that the rest will be used at a later tournament.
