RIP Rich East and the Rocket tourney

With the closing of Rich East announced last night, the renowned Rocket tournament will be run this year one last time. Thanks, Rich East for giving kids a place to compete hard for decades.

Rich East Rocket last call.

Thank you, Rich East, for hosting a solid tournament for decades. It is older than the Dvorak. What year did it start? The Dvorak started in 1987, and I know the Rocket was around since at least 1986 and was well established by then.

This was 57th year so that would make it 1962

First Dvorak was the 89/90 season. I wrestled in it. It was the Rockford tournament prior to that.

What a great tournament I attended Rich east and we always looked forward to that tournament. When I was there they did the big and little school sides of the brackets. It was a great tournament. It really is sad they are closing that school.
