AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR WILL ROGERS MEDALLION AWARD NOMINEES:
The Covid 19 disruption has finally affected us as well. Therefore, we are announcing that the 2020 Will Rogers Medallion Award Weekend and Banquet will be held the weekend of February 5th and 6th of 2021. While not all of the details are firmly fixed yet, the Award Banquet will be held in Ft. Worth on Saturday night, February 6th, at a restaurant in the Stockyards area. We realize that the cancellation of the 2021 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo may have cast some doubt into our plans. However, we will still have our Banquet and Award Show as planned on February 6th. We postponed it once, but will not again. Until we find out differently, we will stick with our current plan. If necessary, we will fall back to the limited attendance model, film the ceremony, and either stream the event or provide access to the video in some other way. We will keep you updated with any other changes through Facebook posts, our website, and email notices.
