Don Collier

Don Collier, High Chaparral’s ranch foreman Sam Butler, is remembered for many great episodes and scenes – particularly for the episode Follow Your Heart, which featured Sam.

Susan McCray interviewed Don at the 2007 Reunion. This clip from that interview features just one of Don’s great stories out of many that are shared when attending a Reunion.

Listen as Don tells about a time he and Bob Hoy tried to play a joke on Producer Kent McCray…..you decide who played the joke on who.

I was nine when the Cannons, the Montoyas and the bunkhouse boys first rode into our living room. It was magic, from the very first moment I was enchanted by the series. Arizona became my dream world and the ranch my home.

When I planned to attend the reunion in 2007 I just knew I would have to visit the ranch in Old Tucson as well, so after the reunion a small group of enthusiastic fans crossed the desert and headed for the Cannon Ranch. Although I had seen the landscape a thousand times on TV (and in my dreams) nothing could have prepared me for the breathtaking view of slopes covered with saguaros against a clear blue sky.

It was the country we had traveled over a thousand miles to see, just as the Cannon family had.

When we neared Old Tucson I braced myself, after all I’m a ‘two-feet-on-the-ground’ woman and things are not always what they seem on TV. We walked up to the ranch, and my heart skipped a beat. I was nine again. This was the house I had dreamed of so often when I was little. It was real. It felt like coming home. I could not help myself and tears were trickling down my cheeks. It felt like the High Chaparral, the heat, the dust, the whinnying of the horses. Any time Reno would shout “Riders coming” and Buck and Blue would come riding in after a hard day’s work.

One of the best things is that I was able to share this with kindred souls. Imagine what it will be like this year, when a large group of fans are going to visit the Old Tucson set together!

Fan Rusty LaGrange

I must admit, I’ve been to each and every High Chaparral Reunion, and even a few small fan parties we’ve held prior to the large organized Reunions. Each one is just like the first. I’ll never forget the first encounter and my first Autograph Show in Tucson in 1999. We were a small group of six fans but we were there in spirit for all of the hundreds of new members that followed. The excitement of meeting a childhood star is breathtaking… and it lives within you forever.

Now let’s image that you won’t be able to make the great pilgrimage to Tucson this year, and you’re a bit bummed out by all the talk and excitement. You know you want to wish the best for the other members of HCDG and their guests who are lucky enough to go… but just the same, you wish it were you.

Hold on!

There is a way that you can bask in the light of the event of a lifetime. No matter where you are, you can be a part of it all. Why not receive the taste of the event by supporting those who are working to make the reunion a spectacular show. In return for your small investment, you’ll receive:

  • A hand-signed thank you note from The High Chaparral stars. Believe us when they say they enjoy all this attention and they really do want to give back to the fans all they can. Place it in your album. Better yet, put it on display.
  • An original 2009 HC Reunion invitation embellished with the amazing artwork of our own HCDG member Patricia Schantz. Her detailed sketches offer the best of talent from our worldwide membership. And we’re honored to have her represent the group’s pride in sponsoring this gala event.
  • A special listing on the Sponsor’s Web page. This commemorates you, and your selfless gift of support. If you have a business, we’ll be glad to pin it on this page for all the members to see. You’ll never know who might surf the site and need your expertise.
  • A special identification Sponsorship Name Tag to keep or to wear at the reunion. One of my jobs on the Reunion Posse this year is to create a keepsake name tag that will stand the test of time, and be a cherished memento. It’s a tough assignment but I’m up for the job. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
  • For all Sponsors who give at least $100 and up, you’ll find a seat waiting for you at the Sponsorship Dinner Friday night. This is your chance to dine with the stars. And leave room for dessert.

As you can see, we have some great gifts and grand challenges ahead. Your sponsorship will help to cover many of our costs for different portions of the event throughout the three day program.

Oh, I almost forgot. If you send in your sponsorship and make arrangements with one of the fans, you might have a live cell phone conversation with an HC celebrity. This won’t be guaranteed, but I know we’ll make an extra effort to get you a few moments of talk time.

So is this a package deal or what? Just send $40, $50, $100 or more if you can help, and get all the bonuses coming right to your home. For information on how to send sponsorship money, check out the details from Penny in this newsletter.
