Every State Championship shall be:

1) open to all players in the category, or

2) open to all players who advance from a designated qualifying tournament. Designated qualifying tournaments shall be open to all players in the category.

Each State Championship event shall contribute $2.00 per player to ACFI unless the ACFI board has approved other arrangements.

An organizer who presents an expression of interest or a proposal for the running of a state title event implies an agreement to follow ACFI Scholastic requirements and guidelines for the event.

An organizer making an expression of interest or a proposal should do so with the understanding that the requirements for the event must be met.
