Our second summer activity will be a Rocket Launch extravaganza at Sylvan Rodriguez Park! (hosted by the Webelos 2s) 

Date/Time: July 9th (Saturday), 10am

Location: Sylvan Rodriguez Park, 1201 Clear Lake City Blvd, Houston, TX 77062,-95.1556473,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x5b2750868056dd68!8m2!3d29.5853681!4d-95.1556473

Scouts are welcome to purchase/build their own Estes rockets (or similar if you’re shopping at the scout shop), we have a reusable launcher & controller. Please make sure your kit comes with an engine, recovery wadding, starters & plugs or pick some up. We do not have extras of those.

Buying a kit isn’t required though, the kids will all enjoy chasing the rockets that launch. Plus - Ronny is bringing a couple of water rockets that use 2-liter bottles and lunch using a bicycle pump. Everyone will get a chance to use those.

We can’t be sure about the weather yet, but let’s assume Texas heat in July. Please bring plenty of water and wear sunscreen/bug spray.

See you there!
