ACF Regionals Midwest at OSU: Columbus (2/20/10)

Post by jdd2007 »

The Ohio State University Academic Team is excited to to host the Midwest mirror of ACF Regionals 2010. The tournament will be held on Saturday February 20, 2010. To register, please send an email to osu.academic.team at our gmail account. Let us know the number of teams and buzzers you will bring. Please also provide contact information for a member of your program that we can use to reach you the morning of the tournament.

Fees:
Base fee - $120 per team.
Other discounts/penalties:
Fully functional buzzer systems: -$5 per buzzer (No maximum)
Staffers: -$10 each (No maximum)
Laptop: -$5 each (Maximum 1 per team.)
Travel: -$10 per 200 miles (one way, as determined by Google Maps)
International: -$20 (For teams representing schools located in a different country than the tournament host.)

This is a packet submission tournament. According to the ACF guidelines, any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quiz bowl tournament prior to September 1, 2008 is required to submit a packet.

Packet deadlines--over

edit:
The tournament will be run entirely in University Hall.

We talked to the Trashtwostrophe team and we WILL host a $10/person doubles or singles mirror after the conclusion of ACF Regionals.

I look forward to seeing you this Saturday!

Several people have told me in person that their school will be at Regionals. That is awesome, but I need an email or a post here with the number of teams and buzzers you plan on bringing.
Miami must be coming because they submitted like 3 packets. Unlike Chicago, for example.

To confirm, it'll be 2 teams. We'll bring 3 sets of buzzers.
Also, rumor has it that Trashtwostrophe is happening afterwards?

Is Trashtwostrophe going to be doubles? Regardless of whether it is or not, I would like to play. If it is doubles, I think I might coerce someone else into being my teammate.
EDIT: It looks like I have a teammate.

Trashtwostrophe will happen and depending on the turnout could be singles or doubles.

We'll have a couple buzzer systems. We won't be staying for trash (most of us have seen or written at least parts of the set and we've got to get back to Illinois to run high school stuff anyway.)

Hey,
I never got a notification of the start time or meeting room for this. If someone could post those, I'd be much obliged.

Congratulations to Illinois A, who went undefeated and won a one-game advantaged final over Michigan A to win ACF Regionals Midwest.

Top scorers were Mike from Illinois A, Kurtis from Michigan A and Michael from Chicago A.

full stats, including finals are up: http://results.scobo.net/SQBS.aspx?org= ... =standings

The Trashtwostrophe mirror also happened, and after some minor chaos figuring out how to run an 11-team tournament on seven packets*, a great time was had by all. I'm almost certain that Marnold and Seal went undefeated to win, while the other top bracket teams were Brian Saxton/Doug, Matt Luby/Jonathan Graham, and Jacob Durst/Andy Sekarak.

(*We ended up splitting a team to make 12, then running prelims of 4-4-4, rebracketing, and finals. The wildcard spot in the top bracket had to be decided by total powers as three teams were tied at 2-1, and two of those teams had the exact same PPG.)

Stats were recorded and may be put up sometime, though I don't myself know who has them now.

How does Mike from Miami B have 3 powers? That makes no sense.

Also, I'm pretty sure Michigan A didn't have 9.33 ppb against Miami when in all other games we broke 15 ppb.

At least they don't have a "Mike" and "Sorice" on Illinois A anymore. That was somewhat amusing to see in the preliminary stats.

Minor stats foibles aside, thanks to Ohio State for a well-run tournament and to Jerry, the other editors, and the writers for an excellent set.

Your other gross stats look sensible for that round (15 TU, 3 Neg, 20 TUH, 275 pts.) If your PPB is wrong, one or more of those must be. Maybe you got 375 or something?

I'm pretty sure we did have 375 for that round; I can confirm this Tuesday, when I am in the same state as my notebook.

Beyond that, thanks for a well run tournament!
