Rocket Into Scouting New Cub Rocket Launch

REMINDER - New Cub Scout Rocket Launch - THIS SATURDAY

The Council rocket shoot is scheduled for this coming Saturday Oct. 7 1-4 pm at the large field west of the Buckhorn Home Depot. There's usually a line at 12:45 pm, so invite families to come a little later if they wish.

A few notes to unit leaders:

  • Please remind your new families of this fun event and give us a rough head count via Facebook (Columbia-Montour Leaders Page) or at the office.
  • If you have turned in youth applications but haven't received rockets, please let us know. 
  • Recruiters also receive a rocket--please fill out the Recruiter Form and turn in at office. 

If people (other than new Scouts/Recruiters) with their own rockets and their own engines would like to join us, they are welcome. 

For those who've participated in shoots in the past couple of years, the two rocket styles we use for this event take the 1/2A size engine--available at hobby stores.

And finally, a word about the weather: We can shoot in light rain, and breezy conditions. We can shoot in light rain, and breezy conditions. The only weather that will stop us is lightening and very high winds. If we have to cancel, please check the back here on the Council website for that information.
