For the last three years, we have held Southwest Fox at the Arizona Golf Resort and Conference Center. Until recently we expected this would be true for Southwest Fox 2010 as well. Due to a change in the ownership of the Arizona Golf Resort, we have made the difficult decision to relocate.

We are happy to announce Southwest Fox 2010 is packing up and moving a little south to the new SanTan Elegante Conference & Reception Center and Legado Hotel in Gilbert, Arizona. More details here: SanTan Elegante Conference & Reception Center and Legado Hotel in Gilbert, Arizona
