Hello Super Six hopefuls!

I am going to put you all out of your misery/conspiracy theories to confirm that we will be calling the lucky selection day attendees by the end of the week.

I'm afraid I can't say any more at this point, except to thank you for all your applications and ask you to be patient!

Hope that clears things up!

Alice thanks for that, though I reckon that gives us two days of misery and plenty of time to think up a few more conspiracy theories.  Just following on from one of the many threads on here, what sort of chocolate do you eat?

They'll be calling by the end of the week?!?!?  More waiting!   

Alice, can you hint as to whether you've started calling people yet?!?  Or are all of the calls going to be within a set period of a day, perhaps Friday?

Cheers Alice.

I shall, therefore, officially be giving up hope of a parisienne plod at midnight on friday..........until then......anything is possible!!!

Does anyone know how many will be chosen for boot camp???  Will Simon Cowell be there??? Will we have to sing??? Oh noooooooooo my chances are slipping away here!!

Thanks Alice did you get my earlier message about putting the wrong aim time on the application form???

Time - Anthrax

Ric - I'm sure they will be waiting until they have the entire list done and then sitting down with a list and making the calls in one session

Now you can all start debating whether it will be in alphabetic call order and if so by first name, surname or forum name

Or maybe in time categories and THEN alphabetical, or shoe size related???

@Shawrie - I did get your message, thanks for that. With regard to target times, we do take into account a number of factors including your PBs and running history as well as the target time you put so don't worry - the success or otherwise of your application won't have been affected.

USB - that would make sense! Although I guess we dont know whether the decisions have been made yet... Unless I missed that which is possible!

Shoe size, numerical order of phone numbers, postcode, from north to south... Too many options!!
24/11/2010 at 12:25

Don't forget hat  size in that list.

Have to say Alice dragged a few of you out from slumber!

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it

I'm about to lose control and I think I like it

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it

And I know I know I know I know I know I want you

We shouldn't even think about tomorrow .......... or Friday

24/11/2010 at 14:30
Oh no (well of course this is good news), but I'll have to wait another couple of days before I do my staff rotas! 
24/11/2010 at 14:39

I know one for just after midnight on fri I'm probably be singing:

Another one bites the dust - Queen

What happens if the phone call isn't answered ?

I'm at work 14 hours Thursday and Friday and no access to mobile during that time.

Having worked in places where competition winners are "randomly" selected, its straight to the next one on the list!
24/11/2010 at 15:44
However, this is not a random competition but is based on long listing from the forms received.  I'd hope that there would be an allowance made for people to get back to them.

Andy sly,  looks like you need to pull a sickie !  or you could try smoke signals, failing that carrier pigion !!
24/11/2010 at 15:56
I'll be in between night shifts on Friday, so will be be trying to sleep whilst cuddling up to my phone.  Just hope the insurance & double-glazing people leave me alone though
