Application for Status of Claimant
[Effective on Sunday, April 1st, 2007, replacing the previous version of the Application; the nature of the

the form to the James Randi Educational Foundation. Applicant must state clearly what is being claimed as the
special ability upon which they wish to be tested, and test protocols must be agreed upon by both parties before

applicant will receive the application back, signed by JR. At that po
