Sat, Dec 11 at 1pm at Summitt near the track area

Mary Ann (Bear & Lion Leader) & Eddy Thomas (Asst Cubmaster) really enjoy building and launching rockets so they have decided to have a rocket launch day. You can buy your own, build them and bring them to launch. They bought Estes rockets which you can possibly find online or at other stores and at some hobby stores locally.

Plan to bring your own motors and wadding for your rocket model. (Wadding is the same for them all but if you get a rocket requiring something other than an A8-3 type you would need to bring those.)

Please let Mary Ann Thomas know if you would like to participate so they can make sure to be ready for everyone. Mary Ann - maryannthomas7479 <at> gmail.com 944-7580

Thanks, Mary Ann and Eddy for the invite!
