About the U.S. Navy SEAL Danny Dietz Memorial Roping
The 6th Annual U.S. Navy SEAL Danny Dietz Memorial Team Roping (USTRC Affiliate) and Bar-B-Q Cook Off weekend is set for May 22-24, 2015 in Rosenberg, Texas at The Fort Bend County Fairgrounds. This year's event proves to be bigger and better than ever with the help of our generous sponsors, wonderful staff and hardworking crew. Five years ago, 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 action packed weekend of roping events, great music, and newly added Bar-B-Q Cook Off will be a great way for each of us to get out this Memorial Day Weekend to honor and remember our Fallen SEALs. 100% of the proceeds from the weekend's events benefit The Navy SEAL Foundation.
