Rainbow Rockets version 1.0, 1969-70. from our Winterland Group. The "Rockets" as they were know were the shit for STL traveling midgets,pee wees, mites and bantams. Rainbow colors and lettering on powder blue uniforms probably wouldn't fly today LOL. They had custom hockey bags and jackets and you always knew when the Rockets were in the lobby to play a game or practice. The bonus with this pic is it was taken in the old barn after the first league tournament. The first year of the Rockets there were two age squads: Squirt and Pee Wee, this is a picture of the Pee Wee team. Check the Falstaff sign over the entrance way, one of the Blues' sponsors in the early years. George Wade Jr., is back row far left with the "A". I played PHS and Jr. B Florissant Stars with George Wade Jr.His dad George Sr. coached PHS and the Jr. B Stars in 1976-77. Donnie Dowling is center row with jacket and Mark Martin and Peter Green are in the pic.. Please holler if you recognize anyone, we're getting old and sometimers is kicking our azzes. Larger rez pic if you need a better look. http://www.jesseshunting.com/images/rainbow_rockets_69-70_arena.jpg
