Ron Foxcroft Receives National Award - Honoured for more than 35 Years on Basketball Court
For Immediate Release
RICHMOND, B.C. (September 22, 2004) — The Canadian Amateur Basketball Officials Association (CABO) has awarded Hamilton, Ontario businessman Ron Foxcroft with its highest honour.
At a gala dinner in Richmond, British Columbia, Ron was given the prestigious Ted Earley Hall of Fame Award recognizing his 35 years as a basketball referee. The award was presented by CABO President, Dr. Dave Morphy.
Upon receiving the honour, Ron remarked: "I am extremely proud to receive this award and to be recognized for the more than three decades that I spent on the court. It wouldn't have been possible without the four people who were my mentors; Kitch MacPherson, Bert Carrigan, Ted Earley and Jim Lyle. Without their guidance and influence, I wouldn't have enjoyed such success," Foxcroft added.
The Ted Earley Hall of Fame Award comes on the heels of another honour presented to Foxcroft. In August, Fox 40 was presented with the prestigious 2004 Mel Narol Medallion Award at the National Association of Sports Officials (NASO) Sports Officiating Summit in Washington, DC.
Ron Foxcroft is Chairman and Founder of Fox 40 International Inc. and the Fluke Transportation Group of Hamilton. The married father of three sons resides in Burlington.
