Jk_icon_100pixKevin_cartoonThere is no question the jkOnTheRun Geekapalooza #5 contest in celebration of our third birthday was a smashing success!  First of all, 3 years in blog years is like 100 years in the online world.  :)  We received over 100 entries to the contest, no doubt due to the cool, unique, and very jkOnTheRunish prize package of the Sony U71 and complete mobile kit.

Kevin and I are happy to announce the winner of the contest prize package- Ron Pendleton!  Ron was randomly selected from all the entries with the correct answers to the 10 questions we posed for the contest.  Ron will receive his uber-cool prize package as soon as he sends us his shipping information via email (click our contest heads in the right sidebar) including name, address, and phone number for the shipper.  Congratulations Ron and thanks to all who entered!  We love you guys.  :)  Stay tuned for Geekapalooza #6 which will be coming soon.

  1. Congradulations Ron! what a great prize.

  2. WINNER GEEKAPALOOZA #5 Sunday, May 20, 2007

    I DONT THINK THE WINNER OF THE GEEKAPALOOZA #5 was randomly selected. I checked HIS ENTRY and found out that his entry is different from the others…

    RON PENDLETON entry is the “BIRTHDAY STORY”. Well i know he deserves the credit for having a very unique entry. BUT I DIDNT KNOW that its one of the criteria for selecting the winner. Was this just a COINCIDENCE or not!! Tell me guys…. I dont think so…

    I guess that is unfair to all the other entries. We are all good followers of JKOTR and I love the blog BUT it seems that JK is not fair in selecting the winners. PLEASE EXPLAIN… This is just unfair……. and I dont think its just a mere coincidence.

    THANKS….

  10. We put all the winning entries in a pool and then grabbed one at random. We decided to handle the contests this way because when we awarded the first correct entry in the early contests we got complaints from those outside the US that the posts were in the middle of the night for them. It seems we can’t please everyone with this and that is unfortunate. We put a lot of time and effort in the site and these contests and we know no matter what we do there will be those who are unhappy. Everyone can’t be winners and that’s pretty much all I will say about this. Note that we are one of the few sites who do not restrict entrants to the US only. The first contest winner was in fact in the UK.
