Post by cruzeiro »

Hello,

The University of Ottawa Trivia Club is pleased to announce the Eastern Canada site of ACF Fall 2014, to be held at uOttawa on Saturday, 8 November 2014. ACF Fall is the year's premier introductory-level collegiate quizbowl tournament, and we do hope that you join us at this event.

* No discount for broken buzzers; no maximum.

**** For schools which did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament since September 2012, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school. May be combined with new ACF team discount for a total new-team discount of $100.

Packet Discounts/Penalties
Any team with at least one person on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament prior to September 1, 2013 is required to submit a packet. High school players are included in this definition and are subject to the same discounts and penalties as college teams.

Please reference this flowchart for the packet-submission guidelines. The links in the diagram are clickable. If you have questions on the submission guidelines, email them to [email protected] and they'll clarify.

Payment
Payment for ACF Fall will be processed through the ACF treasurer, Jerry Vinokurov. He will get in touch with you about how much your team owes, how to pay for the tournament, etc. Please contact Jerry with any questions regarding payment.

Note Regarding Highschool Teams
High school teams are welcome to play this tournament, though they should keep in mind that while this may be a lower difficulty tournament, it is nevertheless a collegiate event and significantly more difficult than many high school tournaments. There will be no further discounts for things like playing short-handed or being new to ACF or quizbowl, which applies only to new college teams. Furthermore, high school teams must abide by the packet requirements if any of its members played a college tournament prior to the 2013-2014 competition season.

For more information, refer to the Global Announcement of ACF Fall 2014 or email the editors at [email protected].

McGill A (11-1) and Colonel By A (11-1) played a one game final. Colonel By A won 365-230. Aauysh (Waterloo A) was highest scorer. Andrej (Carleton) was second.

Dennis will post stats soon. Good job everyone and special thanks to all the staffers for valiantly staffing 13 rounds worth of quizbowl.

Stats are available here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/2345/

Colonel By A are the overall and undergraduate winners; McGill A are the D2 winners and runners-up for the rest. Toronto A is the runner-up for D2. Congratulations to all teams!

Somebody has left a white iPhone charger in the main room; we will bring it to the trash tournament tomorrow.

Note to the ACF folks: as a result of Derek So not coming, McGill A was eligible for both UG and D2.

I just would like to thank Dennis Beeby and everyone else involved at the University of Ottawa for preparing such a good, thorough tournament. The tournament went relatively smoothly and all the moderators and scorekeepers were great. I would also like to thank the diverse range of teams who were wonderful to play against.

Thanks for a great tournament, you guys! It was very enjoyable, and thirteen rounds of QuizBowl is only fourteen fewer than I would have liked. But a sincere thank you to the readers who endured the ordeal for us. And to Dennis Beeby for TDing.

Holla at my teammates, Faith, Kira and Jeremy for making the day super-fun, Chris for sabotaging the last question of the day and to Colonel By for being ridiculously good. And a special word to the people on the 2 other Waterloo teams who did a great job.

And all the gratitude in the world to Aaron Dos Remedios, KiraKiraKira and Jeremy "Goose" Stuart for driving us, and to Dennis+Shelby, Nick Penner and Joe Su for housing us.
