Rocket Derby!

In the Fall we also hold our Pack Rocket Derby.  This is a non-competitive event where the scouts work with their parent to construct a model rocket from a kit and then launch them into space!  We usually hold this event in November at Mount St Mary Abbey in Wrentham.  We insert engines into the rockets and the boys get to push the ignition button to launch their rocket.  I think half of the fun is chasing after their rocket as it falls back to earth!
