The 12th Annual Navy SEAL Danny DietzTM Memorial Classic (USTRC Affiliate) weekend will be held on May 28-31, 2021 in Decatur, Texas at NRS Ranch Event Center. Our Annual DDMC BBQ Cookoff will be held September 10-11, 2021 at the Texas Renaissance Festival Camping Grounds in Plantersville, Texas. This year's events may prove to be the biggest and best yet with the help and dedication of our generous sponsors, wonderful staff and hardworking volunteers. In 2008, event coordinator Danny Quinlan met Gunner's Mate 2nd Class (SEAL) Danny Dietz's wife, Patsy at an event where she was speaking about her husband's life in the SEAL Teams and Operation Red Wing; where 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, ultimately taking 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 packed weekend will start off with our Kick-Off Party with great guests & speaker, followed by our team roping events, barrel racing, and 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.
