The 8th Annual Navy SEAL Danny DietzTM Memorial Classic (USTRC Affiliate) and Bar-B-Q Cook Off Weekend.

The event will be held on May 26-28, 2017 in Rosenberg, Texas at The Fort Bend County Fairgrounds. This year's event may prove to be the biggest and best yet. We are thankful for the help and dedication of our generous sponsors, wonderful staff and hardworking volunteers.

Eight years ago, event coordinator Danny Quinlan met Gunner's Mate 2nd Class (SEAL) Danny Dietz's wife, Patsy. She was speaking at an event on the topic of her husband's life in the SEAL Teams and Operation Red Wing.

On June 28, 2005, four of America's most elite warriors were conducting a reconnaissance mission in the Hindu Kush of Afghanistan and came under fire. This ultimately took three of the four men's lives.

Mr. Quinlan approached Patsy with the idea of bringing together the exciting sport of team roping with the SEAL community in an effort to honor her husband. The action packed weekend of roping events, great music, Bar-B-Q CookOff, and the growing Car Show will be a great way for each of us to get out this Memorial Day Weekend to honor and remember our Fallen SEALs.

Proceeds from the weekend's events benefit The Navy SEAL Foundation, and The Navy SEAL Danny Dietz Foundation.

Make sure to check out the official site for the movie LONE SURVIVOR.

The Custom engraved Emerson Big Bulldog will be available at the event. All of the proceeds from the sale of this knife will benefit the foundations listed above.
