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. Thank you for your patience and understanding in these unusual and stressful times. You should receive a letter confirming the details very shortly.
Charles Williams and the Will Rogers Medallion Award Board
MEET AND GREET (Friday, February 5th, 2021)
Friday night is social time for authors and publishers to get together informally and enjoy each other's company. We start (sort of) around 7 pm, and go until we run out of words or whenever. Light refreshments are served, and the conversation is sparkling. We start in the Meeting Room (just inside and to the right of the main entrance) at the La Quinta, but can spill out into the lobby needed. This is a wonderful time to get to know your fellow authors, renew friendships, and relax in a pleasant setting.
BOOK SIGNING (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday)
Unfortunately the Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering has been cancelled due to COVID capacity issues that would strongly affect their attendance. This sadly means that our book selling/signing at the Trappings Show will not take place this year. We hope to proceed with our plans for the Friday Meet and Greet and the big Awards Ceremony, but will keep a close eye on state/local regulations and safety issues.
AWARDS CEREMONY (Saturday, February 6th, 2021)
The rescheduled 2020 Award Ceremony will be held Saturday, February 6th, 2021 in the Ft. Worth Stockyards at Coopers BBQ (301 Stockyards Blvd, Fort Worth, 76164) from 5-9 PM. You will soon receive a letter with program updates. Please complete and send in the banquet reservation form, along with a check or money order for banquet tickets, by January 7, 2021.
