Tribute to Ed Rowe
Ed Rowe, a long time member and BOD member of Central Virginia /Tripoli #25 passed away October 30, 2011 after a battle with cancer. Ed who was a Tripoli Level 3 and TAP member will be missed greatly by club members as well as other rocketry members for his helpful and warm hearted personality. Ed helped many a rocketeer, especially new ones coming in to the hobby and was also instrumental in helping Central Virginia Tripoli move forward to where we are today.
Our hearts and prayers go out to his family as they cope with their loss and we stand ready to assist them with any needs they may have.
