ACF Fall is an annual ACF tournament held concurrently at multiple locations throughout North America. It traditionally takes place on the first weekend of November, though this may not be true at every site. Its 2011 incarnation will be edited by Carsten Gehring.
ACF Fall has been held annually since 2001. Kelly McKenzie suggested the creation of ACF Fall as part of a general initiative in 2001 to make ACF less difficult and more appealing to new players, which had begun with Subash Maddipoti's successful editing of a less-difficult ACF Regionals in January 2001. The inaugural tournaments was well-received by most members of the quizbowl community, though some individuals (such as Craig Barker) maintained that it was still too difficult. In the years since the reputation of ACF Fall has continued to grow, and many teams which were formerly wary of ACF have attended and enjoyed ACF Fall.
Since 2008, ACF Fall has capped all tossups at six lines of 10 point Times-New Roman font.
