I did get to meet Andrew after the closing session. He probably doesn't remember because HE was surrounded by adoring crowds congratulating him on a FANTASTIC conference!

At the meetup, my tongue was twisted when I won the LROY award and tried to incoherently babble my thanks. A more coherent version would have been:

"The SAS-L list has helped tens of thousands of people become better SAS programmers. Discussions on the list have leds to many dozens of papers and presentations at SAS Global Forum and regional SUGs. The frequent contributors on the SAS-L are not only experienced and expert SAS programmers, but they are extraordinarily generous individuals who unselfishly devote hundreds of hours answering allsorts of questions about SAS software.

To be welcomed into this community has been a wonderful experience. To be given an award for my participation is something that I will treasure. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge and passion about SAS. And thank you for this award!"
