2 days. They screened resumes so the prelims were doable in a single day. Semis and finals were the next morning, done by 3:30 or so. It was one of the best/smooth auditions I’ve taken.

Wow. So much for my attempts to be helpful.

I had no idea this trial period was to be so short.

Just means the right person hasnt shown up, its not all that uncommon for them to have a long term sub in lieu of finding the appropriate candidate for the position. I just think they are trying to be very careful with who they ultimately offer the position to.

Gary Ofenloch is a very fine player, and held the position for quite a long time, so these are some pretty big shoes to fill. I don't blame them for being careful.
