First of all, there's a website out there that's running a poll for people to vote for their favorite Pro Bowl Cheerleader at http://www.angelfire.com/nj/nflcheer/probowl08.html Obviously, there's only one right way to vote...for Nicole. This 4th year vet was voted to represent her squad at the Pro Bowl by her squadmates this past season and will hopefully be back in 2008 to continue cheering on the Bills...and maybe share a few memories from Hawaii.
Speaking of being back in 2008, here's just another reminder that Jills tryouts are coming up
All audition dates are closed to the public. Only young ladies participating in auditions will be permitted in audition area. Videotapes are not accepted for auditions, all candidates must be able to attend all audition dates in person.
There is an open, required workshop for all interested Dancer and Ambassador Jills on Sunday, March 30th, 2008 at 10am. Ending time will be determined by number of attendee’s. Please come early to check-in. The actual audition dance routine will be taught at this workshop as well as learning all the requirements for both the Dance squad AND the Ambassador squad. There is no fee for this 1st workshop. You will not be judged at this workshop however; it is still important that you look your best because video and photos are taken. There will be a short question and answer period during this workshop to help you understand what to expect throughout auditions and what is expected of a Buffalo Jill.

Please keep in mind that if you missed the cut in a previous year, that doesn't mean you can't make it this year. Just from the 2007 squad, we have Amanda P, Autumn, Katie K, Keisha, Amanda F, Katherine, and Lisa who didn't make the squad their first time out but came back and nailed spots on the roster. Katie K even made co-captain this past season.
Also, just a reminder for anyone going to see the Bandettes at this weekend's game against Philadelphia, gates are opening at 6pm as opposed to the old 6:30 time. The reason for this...Bandettes posters will be available and the squad will be stationed at the top of the east bank of escalators to sign them from shortly after 6 until about 7pm. Make sure you show up early because we will have to cut the line off by 7 so the squad can make it to their locker room in time to get ready for their pregame performance.
