Together through their subsidiary, In Color Digital Communities, Tom Widroe and Art Fisher received the UCSB Recreational Sports' Pioneer Award for 2012.
Rec Sports has recognized Mr. Widroe and Mr. Fisher for their contribution as pioneers in creating GauchosPlay.com, a website portal for users and faculty of their department. Together with department head, Paul Lee and a team of avid student employees, in 2008 In Color built and deployed a massive website for their benefit.
Since then, the site has undergone major revisions, and with several "student webmaster" teams spanning four years, the site has grown to become a indispensable resource for the Rec Sports department. GauchosPlay.com hosts over a thousand different pages of valuable content, including forms, schedules, rules, facility pages, and contact information for dozens of Sport Club, Intramural Sports and Adventure Club departments. It's truly an enterprise-class website.
There to present the award, inducting Mr. Widroe and Mr. Fisher into the Rec Sports Hall of Fame, were student web masters, Rochelle Farnum, John Batikian and Zak Weinberg.
