I am pleased to announce the GREAT PLAINS site of ACF Fall 2015, to be held at Kansas State University on Saturday, 7 November 2015. ACF Fall is the year's premier introductory-level collegiate quizbowl tournament, and we do hope that you join us at this event. The tournament will take place in Eisenhower Hall, which is #41 on this map: ... ap2011.pdf
