Re: Monday, September 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wow! How often do we see a spelling mistake in a Jeopardy! clue??? I grabbed my phone to take a screen shot as soon as I noticed it, but was too late to catch it.

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

Wait and see. I can only imagine they don’t want to make any promises to anyone, but I’m sure they keep track of some people in exceptional scenarios. You did the right thing by emailing. Now you have to respect the “don’t call us, we’ll call you” rule. Good luck and do report back. I’m in a simila...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

Last spring I missed an audition in Boston due to a canceled flight out of Newfoundland. Two weeks ago I emailed the contestant coordinator to subtly remind him that I had been invited last year, hoping he would maybe consider sticking me back on the audition list again. He replied that rescheduling...

How do you know you passed if they never call you for an in-person audition????
You can review the questions and correct answers and compare them with the responses you gave.

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Very best wishes to Alex and family as he battles this terrible disease. He is facing it with obvious courage and humour. A class act, as he always has been.

I was invited to the audition in New York last spring, but was unable to get to it - flight canceled for weather. Didn't get the follow-up invite to the fall sessions in Philadelphia, even though a contestant coordinator even emailed me and gave me a heads-up about the upcoming Philly auditions. Wh...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Looks to me like back in August a lot of boardies got audition invites to Philly for mid-September. Earlier in the summer I was told by the contestant organizers that they would be "potentially" doing auditions in Philadelphia "later this year". But the email never came. Oh well, I'll do the online ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I received the original notice that said we had two days to respond. Of course I almost knocked myself out in my rush to do so. Got the confirmation within the next 24 hours. If you have not, by all means contact them so they don't give your seat away. Hope to see you there. Persistence paid off. I...

Has anyone received a confirmation for the Cleveland audition? I replied to the email and have not heard anything back yet. I'm in the if anything can go wrong mindset, it probably has. Thanks.

Today I got THE CALL! In case this is pertinent: There are 0 players in J! Archive billed as being from Newfoundland. Assuming you're living there when you tape, you'll be the first to actually be introduced as from Newfoundland. There have been other players in the past from Newfoundland, Canada. ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

A huge Congrats to klakins on getting The Call.
I was on my way to the airport to do an audition in NYC on May 31 when my flight was cancelled at the 11th hour due to weather. I notified the J! folks but never heard back since. :cry:
Oh well, back to the next on-line test, I suppose.

How long have you lived in St. John's? The weather there is freaky if it ISN'T 70mph winds and rain or snow and fog! My graduate student was supposed to fly back from St. John's for a defense a couple of years ago and her flight was cancelled for 3 straight days due to fog. Best of luck - and I hop...

The freaky weather has been in the national news, so they should understand how people have been affected. If you can be flexible about upcoming audition dates and locations, let 'em know. Hope everything works out! Thanks, squarekara! I've contacted them but haven't heard back yet. I'm very optimi...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Well if I believed in weather gods I would definitely have a persecution complex today. Yesterday as I was about to depart from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, (YYT) for my audition this afternoon in New York City, my flight was cancelled due to a freak wind and rain storm. Winds of 70 mph and tor...
