Uniforms: Scouts should wear Class B uniform for the daytime activity and Class A for the Saturday evening Camp Fire and the Sunday Field Service.   Due to the activities being undertaken with the Boy Scouts on the Sat, no open-toed footwear or CROCs (eg. flip flops or sandals) be worn.  Sneakers or hiking boots are more suitable for this weekend.  It is recommended that Scouts bring water bottles and bug spray for the Troop Activities on Sat.

5...4...3...2...1...  It's that time of year again!  

Using an empty 2L soda bottle Scouts will build and launch a rocket.

The idea is for the boys to do most of the work.  If parents want to build their own, we'll have time to put them to a test.   
Bonus points for Scouts that add a parachute to their rocket.  

For complete instructions, see the 98_waterbottlerocket.pdf .   The rocket will need a little weight added to the nose to prevent it from spinning out of control during flight.  There are a lot of Bottle Rocket youtube videos to assist.

WARNING: DO NOT CUT ANY PART OF THE 2L BOTTLE THAT WILL BE PRESSURIZED.  
THIS WILL RESULT IN THE ROCKET BLOWING UP DURING LAUNCH.
 
Where: Independence Middle School 
 
When: 8/14 from 5:50 - 8:00 (launches start at 6:00)
 
What to expect:  Soaked Scouts

Bring: A complete rocket and a friends that you think might want to join the Pack. Water cannons are also allowed; however, NO water "GUNS".  GUNS have triggers,
CANNONS push and pull in order to squirt water.  WATER GUNS are not permitted at Pack events; however, water CANNONS are strongly encouraged..    

Tips:  The rocket needs to have a little weight added to the top of it in order to prevent it from flipping and spiraling out of control during launch.
