2020 Silver Spur Award Show Cancelled
I am Robert Lanthier, president of the Reel Cowboys, and the producer/director of our annual Silver Spur Award show. It makes me sad to tell you fine folks this sad news. Because of everything going on right now with COVID-19 and the economy, The Reel Cowboys have no choice but to cancel this year's show (slated for September 25th, 2020).

The Reel Cowboys and I have serious concerns regarding the health of the guests and celebrities who have supported our show in past years. Many of them fall into the “at risk” age group, and a few of them have underlying health issues that could also put them in danger. I admire these people and would never want to do a show without them or put them in any jeopardy.

Here in California, the Governor and Legislature have decided to continue taking steps to protect its citizens by mandatory wearing of masks, social distancing, and closure of businesses until a cure can be found; the chances are that this will continue past October, 2020.

I know many of the fine folks who work hard to make this show possible and successful. They need to be protected as well. The work it takes to put the Silver Spur Award show is demanding and it is something that takes lots of planning. I don't want to put this burden on them on top of everything else they are already dealing with.

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made this show a fun, exciting, and rewarding experience. I promise we will be back in 2021. After 22 amazing years, with each show bigger and better, I am confident you will definitely enjoy next year’s show.

If you have any questions about this cancelation or upcoming shows, you or your friends can feel free to contact us.

Thank you to all who have supported us in the past. I appreciate you more than you could ever know.

Save the Date for the 2021 show (September 17th).

Silver Spur AwardIt could have been called "The Sibling War," as brother killed brother, but there was nothing 'civil' about it. When the smoke cleared and 58,000 were buried, the routes to the West were filled with people trying to leave despair behind, no matter the challenge ahead.

The place had no name, just a clearing in the Southwest Cherokee Territory. Some pioneers had circled the wagons and hunkered down for some food and rest. The men would take positions to guard against an Indian raid. Then, at dusk, two or three of the most agile, ventured out to the high-ground to scout the prospects of an attack. That night, one of the men didn't return.

By daybreak, when a search party was being formed, they saw motion in a hammock of trees and their rifles were ready to speak death! But a small Indian boy emerged and walked slowly to the encampment. Barely seven years old and wide-eyed with fear, he moved with purpose toward the armed men. He didn't speak the white man's language, but in his tiny hand he held the silver spur of the man who wouldn't return.

There was no need for a search party and there were tears for the 'closure' just rendered, but the legend of the boy they called "Silver Spur" became known throughout the treacherous West, for his courage, compassion, and trust in his fellow human beings.

The Reel Cowboys would like to honor those who reflect the qualities of the "Silver Spur," so each year, the organization presents the "Silver Spur Awards" to deserving individuals and organizations.
