Launching the rockets (hopefully)…

So seeing as there is a weather warning for snow for Tuesday evening we will be launching the rockets in a local park.

Forewarning: if the roads are not able to be driven on then Scouts will be cancelled as leaders will not be able to travel to and from the hut.


  • Meet at hut 7pm wearing full waterproofs, boots/wellies/ clothing appropriate to the weather and your necker. You will also need your torches
  • Fix motors into rockets (don’t forget to bring your rocket with you!)
  • Walk to local park (have not decided which one yet as still planning wide game)
  • Set rockets off
  • Play wide game
  • Head back to the hut.

Hopefully see you all tomorrow! 



So finally we are actually going to be making rockets this Tuesday…

But only if you bring lightweight cylinder junk to make them with! E.g. Smartie tubes

We have enough motors for 1 each so each of you will be making your own rocket πŸ™‚

Next week we will be setting your rockets off in the peaks! More details of where to meet will come later in the week…you will be taking your rockets home with you so ensure you have a safe place to keep them.
