Official Rules and Regulations for Qualifiers now available

The official Rules & Regulations for the 2012 Midwest RFU Qualifier Series are now available for download

I encourage all teams to read this document carefully as there are a number of changes this year including:

  1. All sites must offer a $250 rate for Qualifier teams, though this can increase after a reasonable time (i.e. early bird).
  2. 2012 will see three Women's Qualifier events. 
  3. The points system has changed quite radically, with bonus points for each team that attends a Qualifier and extra points for teams that attend all 4 (Men's) or 3 (Women's) Qualifiers.
  4. There is no Midwest playoff. Teams will advance to the Nationals based solely on points accrued from the Qualifiers. 
  5. (Added 5/30) Rosters with full names and CIPP must be submitted 2 days (36-48 hours) prior to the first match of the tournament.
  6. (Added 6/11) The Playoff round will be played with at least 8 teams (when possible) and must have a double-elimination format. 

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
