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:
- All sites must offer a $250 rate for Qualifier teams, though this can increase after a reasonable time (i.e. early bird).
- 2012 will see three Women's Qualifier events.
- 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.
- There is no Midwest playoff. Teams will advance to the Nationals based solely on points accrued from the Qualifiers.
- (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.
- (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.
