We are looking to build, and launch some paper rockets on Saturday. We will be in the backyard (behind the school) of Hidden Lakes Elementary. Come try your best at making a rocket and shooting it off with our new rocket launcher. Let’s see who can fly the farthest and who can fly the highest!

We will meet at 3:30pm. Bring a hat and something cool to drink. It might be a little warm out there. Wear your Cub-Scout T-shirt. Don’t have a t-shirt? We’ll get you one! Email Stephen Cook at for more info!
