2017 Space Derby

posted Jan 21, 2017, 2:37 PM by Cub Scout Pack 99
Good Afternoon Parents!!

Our space derby event will be this Friday Jan 27 @ Newtown Elementary School. We will have a staggered start time similar to what we do for Pinewood Derby. See below for the exact schedule. Please arrive at your assigned inspection time below. It is also your responsibility to read the rules and build parameters for your son's rocket. The official Pack 99 rules can be found here 2017 Space Derby Rules.

Just a few rocket tips:
  • Sand paper works best when shaping the rocket. Use coarse paper to take a lot of material off, then switch to a finer grain to fine tune.
  • Since there are no power tools involved, there is no reason your son can't complete this entire project own his own.
  • There will be prize for most creative, so please paint the rocket.
  • DO NOT alter the length of the rocket.
  • DO NOT increase the rockets width. You can decease the width.
  • Only TWO rubber bands are allowed. Please bring the extra rubber bands for back up.
See you all Friday.
