You know what, I almost forgot about announcing the winner of this contest. Oops! Well, sorry about that, so let’s get back to it.
So, as a reminder, the winner get’s an autographed Think Orange and Think Orange companion workbook as soon as the companion book comes out (good things come to those who wait).
So, like I said before, Reggie’s middle name is Reggie, it’s his first name that we’re trying to get. And, the much anticipated answer to the question “What is Reggie Joiner’s first name” is:
What a great name, huh? Sounds like there’s a story behind it.
So, I’ve never met anyone named Herschel, so I didn’t expect anyone to get it. I was going to award the winner to the one who got the closest. However, two people actually named “Hershel” as their answers. Like I said before, I didn’t expect anyone to get this, and then I had two. What are the odds? I’ll be honest, I think our two winners either have an inside source or some pretty good detective work. That’s okay, I didn’t list any restrictions, so if they had some inside knowledge, that’s perfectly fine by me. (by the way, if either of you actually just guessed it, then super huge props to you! With that luck gift, I’m going to have you buy me a lottery tocket).
So, my winners are Theresa Haskins and Robert Johnson.
Unfortunately, I can only have one winner. So, I need to have a sudden death. Here’s the rules. I’ve got one more question and the first person to answer it wins it all. I don’t care who you ask or what you do to find the answer. I’m sure there’s a certain amount of public information out there where you might be able to find it, so search hard. Oh, and one more thing. You only have 5 guesses, so feel free to guess 5 times in 5 separate comments are 5 times all in one.
The Question: Where was I born?
The answer needs to be specific down to the city. I will not give out any clues or reveal any more information. Remember, both Robert and Theresa have 5 shots. The person who names a city that is the closest to my birthplace is the winner. Ready…. Set…. Go!

I have some special projects I’m working toward, so I’ll accept monetary bribes for the answer from the largest bidder. J/K 🙂
Newton, NC is guess number 1.
This may cost more than the books are worth. What’s your price?
Conover, NC is guess number 2
Ha! The things we discover from facebook. Remember, you get 5 guesses.
Kenneth Boyd Conley – Valdosta, Georgia?
Feels kind of creepy… you’re digging up all my childhood homes. Theresa, where are you? You may still have a chance. 🙂

I nw know more about you than I ever wanted to. It has never been about the book (certainly not the autograph) but I LOVE a friendly competition!
After this you are buying dinner for my wife and me at Orange – Pappadeaux’s Seafood Restaurant!
You’re doing a good job of digging. It’s amazing how much info you can find if you really get in there and look. Ha!
Yes, I assume that you do know more about me than you ever intended… feels kinda weird since I know nothing about you.
Dinner at Orange. We’ll have to see. You do have good taste though!
OK! My last two because this has become the enemy of family time!
New Albany, Indiana
Or, if Teresa really needs the books, you can just give them to her.
Well, here’s my bio briefly. I am 59. Was a lead pastor for over 30 years. Been Family Ministry Director for 1 1/2 years. I am married, 3 children. My oldest son is the lead pastor at the church where I am on staff now. Can you discover where I was born?
OK, what’s your decision?
Oh my gosh. I live in Virginia and my email was my work address. I left the office Friday around 3:30 and just returned. I kept checking the blog, but some how missed this post. Then I came down with the absolute worse flu of the century and was completely out of commission…
I will check today, but not sure how quickly I can (with being out of work for all those days!). I would be wiling to split the difference. I already have the BOOK, but would LOVE the workbook…or I will guess later today.
I am so sorry I missed this…I NEVER give up!
At one point I had a slight British accent (I was born there and learned to talk there) and later I had a southern accent (it comes back when Iâ€™m in the South).
From your personal blog….during lunch!
I’m good with giving her the books, splitting the books or winning the books. Kenny, you make the decision and we’ll gowith it!
Okay, we have a winner! I tell you what, It’s a bit of a creepy feeling having people dig into the bowels of the internet to dig up personal information about you. Seriously… but it was fun.
Robert apparently accessed my facebook information and figured out just about every place I’ve ever lived. However, Theresa came in for the kill by accessing my personal blog and found a post where I mentioned that I used to have a British accent as a child because I was born in England.
Congrats Theresa. However, I have good news for both of you. After I started this little tie breaker, my friends at reThink said I can give both of you prizes. So, they’ll be sending both of you both books… signed by Herschel Reginald Joiner!
However, I do want to reward Theresa for winning the tie breaker. So, there’s a new book coming out this Spring called Collaborate that I had the honor of writing one of the chapters. Robert, it’s going to be a great book, you’ll want a copy. Theresa, when it’s out, I’ll give you a copy.
Kenny, YOU’RE THE BOMB!!!! I am so excited!!!!! Thank you so much! I can’t wait!!!!
Sounds super good to me! I enjoyed getting to know all of your family and friends over the last few days. Seriously, thanks toyou and all of the others who blogged and are blogging about Orange! i have enjoyed the read and have gotten some great ideas and sparked some interesting conversations with my team about Orange thinking! And, thanks to ReThink! Great organization, great people and tremendous resources.
Kenny your right that was creepy. And you being a britt explains a lot! Ha!
