I am pleased to announce that the Upstate NY site of 2019 ACF Fall will be held at RIT on Saturday, November 2, 2019. The tournament will take place in the Eastman Building, with team check-in beginning at 8:30 am in Eastman 3355 and gameplay beginning at 9. I will be the tournament director. Please direct any questions about this site to me at [email protected].

In general, teams where players are all attending the same school and all taking at least one class for credit during the 2019-2020 school year are eligible to play 2019 ACF Fall. ACF’s full eligibility rules are available here. Questions about eligibility should be directed to [email protected].

This tournament will follow ACF’s official gameplay rules.

Registration for this event has two steps.
First, please write to [email protected] with your team name, the number of buzzers and staffers with laptops you will be bringing, and whether you will travel more than 200 miles one-way.
Second, Fill out the central 2019 ACF Fall registration form with all relevant information. The form is here: The field for each site can be found here.

Base fee: $150
New to quizbowl discount: –$100
Shorthanded discount (1-2 players): –$75
Buzzers: –$10 per functional system
Staffers: –$15 per staffer with functional laptop
Travel: –$10 per 200 miles traveled one-way
The "new to quizbowl" discount is intended for schools that did not send a team to any regular collegiate academic tournament (exclusively Novice tournaments do not count) since September 2018, and have no one on the team(s) claiming this discount who played those tournaments for another school.

Pack Discounts/Penalties

Any team with at least two people on it who played a regular, collegiate, academic quizbowl tournament (either as a college student or as a high school student) prior to September 1, 2018, is required to submit a half-pack, unless it is a high school team attending a high-school-only mirror. If you are unsure whether your team is required to submit a half-pack, please email ACF at [email protected].

The submission schedule is as follows (your submission must be sent to [email protected] by 11:59 PM PDT):
September 7: –$30
September 21: –$15 (–$30 if optional)
October 5: no penalty (–$15 if optional)
October 12: +$25
October 19: +$50

Packets submitted later than October 20 will receive an additional penalty of +$10 per day starting on October 21.
