What better way to start the summer than with a rocket launch? A potluck picnic in the park as our year end get together only gets better when you add in that T-3, 2, 1, Blast Off!
We typically build the rockets together in our final pack meeting of the year. Additional kits are available for a small fee if siblings want to participate too.
Mr. Eric from Troop 1029 has an amazing setup to keep everyone safe in mission control. Provided the winds aren't terrible, we only have to chase the crafts down on the soccer field once gravity takes over.
While COVID-19 delayed our launch this year, the Pack rallied by building rockets at home and gathering with a 1 Scout + 1 Adult group to allow maximum participation with a 50 person limit shortly after VA entered Phase II.
