The audition before last, San Diego was one of the cities you could designate. Did they ever hold San Diego auditions?

Don't believe so. The news of SD auditions is what I'm always on here looking for—probably to be disappointed that I'm not among the invited, but still....

San Diego audition invites are going out!

When I joined JBoard, I think I read most of the posts under this topic, but I don't remember anyone posting the actual invitation for the audition. (I did a site search and see that it's been posted in other topics.) The email text doesn't include any personal identifiers, so I thought it might be interesting for others of the uninitiated (like me, before today) to see:

Jeopardy! Contestant Audition in San Diego on February 6 at 11:30am
Congratulations! You have been selected for a follow-up appointment at an upcoming Jeopardy! contestant search for the San Diego area, exclusively for those who successfully passed the online test. This is the next step in becoming a Jeopardy! contestant. We have reserved the following appointment for you:

When: Monday, February 6th
Time: 11:30 AM
Where: San Diego, CA

You must RSVP within two business days of receipt of this email to secure your place in the audition. To RSVP, reply to this email and provide the following:
1) Date and time of your audition
2) Your name
3) Your residential city & state
4) Your phone number

Due to overwhelming demand we can only hold your spot for two business days. If you respond after that period of time, and if we still have space, we will be happy to provide you with an appointment.

Your appointment is non-transferable, and only those who receive this invitation directly from Jeopardy! may RSVP to book an appointment. Each RSVP will be matched against an invite list and forwarded invitations will not be honored.

Appointments are very limited, so please be sure you can join us before you RSVP. Should you have a major conflict with the time and/or date provided, you may respond to this email and explain the nature of the situation. Again, please provide your name, city, and phone number.

Once you RSVP, we will email you a letter of confirmation within ten business days that will give you the exact location and other information regarding trying out.

The audition will last about 2 – 2 ½ hours.

Eligibility: You must not have been to an in-person audition (where you took a 50 question test) in the past 18 months. If we find that you have been at an in-person audition in the past 18 months, you will be deemed ineligible. You cannot appear on Jeopardy! if you have previously appeared on Jeopardy! from 1984-2017. You must not have done any other game shows in the past year or more than 2 in the past 5 years.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Best Regards,
The Jeopardy! Contestant Department

I'm sure it's no surprise to anyone on this site, but I got a bit weepy and I replied immediately.

Thanks for the congrats and encouragement.

Another note for audition newbies like me: Once you respond to the audition invitation email, it does NOT take ten days for the confirmation and location details, thankfully. Mine arrived with an hour of my response. It includes an attachment with the kind of application/questionnaire one would expect, which we're supposed to print, fill out, and take to the audition.

OK, bye. Gotta go study national capitals, the periodic table, the Constitution, mythology, religion.... :o
