After everyone filed in, a larger group than was at last year's Optional Workshop, Steph and Nichole went over many of the requirements and expectations of becoming a Buffalo Jill and answered questions from several potential rookies looking to learn all they can to be ready for Sunday and the future.

After the question-and-answer session was over, some more girls who were just there for the dance session showed up and everyone was given a look at how tryouts were going to run. This year, the first part of tryouts will be basically a parade across the stage in which all the young ladies auditioning will go across the stage in their tryout attire. This will allow the judges, and the fans, to get a look at everyone trying out and to give the participants a chance to not only give everyone a great first impression, but help shake off any jitters they may have for the tryout process.

Also, after everyone had gone through the routine, Omarlla, Christina, and Loren separated the girls into three groups and led each group through the performance.
