Attention all rocketeers !   5...4...3...2...Ignite!!!
For all of you who have built a rocket or already own one,  here is a chance to test fly it.  Announcing the first ever annual Pack 43 rocketday!

Here is the cool thing: We get to fly our rockets at Nasa / Ames facility at Moffett field.
  Scouts, help us make this a success  by getting your parents out of bed and show up at Moffett field where launchings will start at 10AM sharp.  Please do not install any engines and igniters in your rockets. If you carry  engines (explosives) in your car, you must have placard in your window of your car.  Please look in the attachments and print the "NASA.Ames.Access.pdf" and print the Explosives 1.4 page for your window.  Also you must enter through gate #158 as described in "Direction for Rockets at Moffett Field.htm".
Your rocket should have a name on them so they can be identified and returned to their owner after recovery. We will bring a label maker for professional looking name and phone # label. See you all there.

Due to rain expected on Nov 20, the rocket launch has been postponed until December 18.
