Rocket Launch and Crossover Ceremony – May 17th

Pack 471 will host the annual Crossover Ceremony and Rocket Launch on Sunday, May 17th from 1 to 4 p.m. at Pope High School.

We will using the Pope High School practice field (behind the Gymnasium).

We will have the crossover ceremony first where we will celebrate our scouts crossing into their new ranks with their new neckerchief and handbook for their new rank. After that we will launch our rockets!

Time to start building a new rocket or dusting off an old one. We strongly suggest that you only use A or B size rocket engines so we don’t lose our rockets if they go too high. If you have never built rockets in the past, there are several types that are very easy first time rocket kits, which include everything but the engine itself. Hobby Town and Hobby Lobby both have a great selection of rockets and engines. Remember to add wadding.

Things to bring:

Your scout’s rocket to launch

Engines ( bring multiple if you want to launch your rocket more then once)

Class – A uniform with Class B under it (they can remove their blue uniform shirt after the ceremony).

Water bottles

Sunscreen

We hope that you can make it and celebrate this year of adventure that we’ve had!
