CANCELLED - Rocket Day 2018

posted Feb 16, 2018, 7:58 AM by Pack 4 Webmaster   [ updated Apr 7, 2018, 7:50 AM by Committee Chair Pack 4 ]
Sadly, our Rocket Day scheduled for today (4/7) has been canceled because Needham fields are closed. Hopefully we can reschedule for later in the year.

Build and Launch your very own rocket with Pack 4! 
When: Saturday, March 24, 1:00pm - 4:00 pm - Cancelled 
Rain/Snow Date: Saturday, April 7 - Cancelled 
Where: Claxton Field (Please note: parking is limited at Claxton Field so families are encouraged to carpool. If the Claxton parking area is full, families must park at the Town Forest/Horsford Pond; there is no parking on Central Avenue.) 

Suggested Times by Den (to decrease wait times for rocket launches):
1:00 - 2:30 pm -- Tigers & Wolves
2:30 - 4:00 pm -- Bears, Webelos, Arrow of Light

Rocket kits will be given to all Den Leaders at the Blue & Gold celebration. Rocket engines will be distributed at Rocket Day. A limited number of sibling rocket kits are available for purchase for $10. Please see David Waller at the Blue & Gold for a sibling kit.

Parent volunteers needed!  We need a small number of parents to keep the event running smoothly and ensure that our Scouts (and parents) are safe. Please visit the SignUp to volunteer: 

***For safety reasons, Rocket Day is not a drop-off event. Parents need to remain with their Scouts. No snacks or drinks are provided at this event.
