Congrats on the good news. I would guess that would be 3rd or 4th week of the season. Season 35. Wow.

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.

And, of course, will be announced as from "Newfoundland, Canada," as opposed to all of those other Newfoundlands.

"Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada", would be the correct name, but Alex probably wouldn't be so exact.

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.

There have been other players in the past from Newfoundland, Canada. I wonder why they would not be in the archive?

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.
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'm in the 10 am group on the 28th. When is your audition?
The 28th. 10 AM. :D All Boardies should wear team colors so we can identify and greet each other. (PS I'll be the old guy who will be incorrectly assumed to be trying out for the Seniors Tournament.)

Colors or not, I hope we're able to meet.
if anyone assumes that, they haven't watched jeopardy in years...
Assumes what?

I had seen in the past something brief about Philly tryouts, any further word on this? Do you think they combined the Philly group with NYC? If so I'm hosed again. :oops: :oops:

with the posted travelogue upthread, my guess would be it was combined with either NYC or DC; but in the past we have seen them come to the east coast multiple times in a season, so there may still be hope.

This was the first time I can remember them listing DC, Baltimore, Philly, NYC and Boston for the same test; and since we know they went to NYC twice, and DC once, I'm wondering if they listed all those cities with no intention of actually going to all of them, but combining auditions at each city. This way, they could split up the auditioners in the megalopolis of the northeast into their geographic areas without going to each one.

That said, can anyone on the board that had an audition in NYC or DC in this go-round confirm they chose an audition city OTHER than NYC or DC?

DC was not an option when I signed up, so I chose Philly. I was surprised to be assigned to DC when I got the email.

Today was the audition. Alex was there!

I auditioned in Atlanta and got the call this week. I am still shocked!

I have just joined jboard so I was hoping somebody could point me to a thread that discusses highest-yield prep strategies.

I tried searching but it seems like I was just pulling one-off comments from random threads.

Thanks in advance!
