The Air Mobility Rodeo is a biennial, international airlift competition hosted by the United States Air Force Air Mobility Command. AMC gathers wings from active duty, reserve, and Air National Guard units from across the United States and around the world to test and improve tactics in a competitive environment. In this environment units are able to demonstrate capabilities, improve procedures, compare notes, and enhance standardization for global operations.
The "Rainier Ranch" is where all competitors for the Air Mobility Command RODEO gather and celebrate their victories and console each other in their losses during the competition. There is a stage for live entertainment. RODEO 2013 was canceled for financial reasons.
