Congratulations to both Jim and Francis and thanks for all your efforts in making VFPX the future of VFP.

2010 FoxPro Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients

It was my great pleasure to announce at Southwest Fox 2010 the recipients of the 2010 FoxPro Lifetime Achievement Award: Lisa Slater Nicholls and Rick Schummer. The stars must have been perfectly aligned because Lisa’s husband, well-known FoxPro guru Colin, and Rick’s wife Therese and parents Phil and Carole were in attendance. I obviously had to tell Lisa in advance so she could come to Phoenix but Rick was taken completely by surprise. In fact, I’ve never seen him speechless before.

Congratulations, Rick and Lisa; I can’t think of more deserving people and in Lisa’s case, long overdue. Hopefully we’ll have some video uploaded soon that shows them receiving their awards; check http://www.swfox.net/videos.aspx.
