Boy Scout Troop 219

Rocket Launch

The Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts will be holding a joint rocket launch Saturday August 12th 9:00 AM at the White Mountains Regional High School.  All scouts and family members are welcome at the launch.  In all we expect to launch 30 – 50 rockets. You won’t want to miss this!!

Over the past month or so the Boy Scouts have worked on building their own rockets.  For many of our Scouts this is the last required item for earning their Space Exploration merit badge.  To earn the merit badge the Scout must launch the rocket, recover it and launch it  a second time.  I have enjoyed watching the rockets come together – we have a wide range of sizes and styles that will be launched on the 12th.

As always please contact Scoutmaster Ken with any questions!  Keep your fingers crossed for good weather and we will see you next Saturday as we blast off for FUN!

Please note: We will not have access the inside of the buildings at the high school so there will be no restrooms available.
