Southwest Fox is just around the corner

There are less than 2 weeks to go until the best Visual FoxPro conference in North America kicks off. The pace is picking up here at Geek Gathering’s World Headquarters in Michigan, the two remote offices in Pennsylvania and Saskatchewan, and at the Arizona Golf Resort in Arizona. The conference is about to materialize right before our eyes.

The menu is finalized, the schedule is updated (late vendor adds), the conference CD is getting burned, the Conference Guide is getting printed, evaluations are finalized, badges will be assembled next weekend, and speakers are preparing to deliver you the best sessions around. The white papers for this conference total over 1000 pages of fresh and interesting material that is sure to bring value for years to come.

We want to let the folks who have registered to know over the next 10 days you will be getting several emails. These emails have some important information about the conference and helpful hints about getting the most out of the Southwest Fox experience.
