ANNOUNCEMENT: ACF Fall Southwest at OU, 11/8/2008

Post by DVader »

The Oklahoma Academic Team is excited to host the ACF Fall Southwest Tournament at the University of Oklahoma on November 8, 2008.

Tournament Cost
ACF Fee Structure applies (http://www.hsquizbowl.org/acf/acf.html):
Base fee: $120
Buzzer systems: -$5 each
Staffers: -$10 each
Laptop: -$10 each (max 1 per team)
Travel: -$10 for every 200 miles traveled
International: -$20
Teams new to ACF: -$25
Teams new to quizbowl: -$75

Packet Submission
According to ACF rules, any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2007, is required to submit a packet in order to participate in an ACF tournament in 2008-2009. All ACF tournaments, NAQT Division I or Division II SCT, NAQT ICT, and typical academic invitationals count as regular collegiate academic tournaments for this purpose, but trash or “hybrid” tournaments, College Bowl/HCASC, and tournaments played on NAQT Invitational Series questions do not. Teams that are not required to submit a packet to ACF Fall may still do so and will receive financial incentives.

For this tournament, send packets to Andrew Hart at [email protected].

ACF Fall Southwest was held today at OU with a very small but dedicated field of teams. We would like to thank the Liberal Arts and Sciences Academy of Austin and Langston University for coming today. The Liberal Arts and Sciences Academy finished first followed by OU B. Full standings and stats are posted at http://www.ou.edu/student/okacf/results ... dings.html.
