Pack 565 Families,

Those were some spectacular rockets, weren’t they?!! I think some of them made it to the stratosphere. Some were in danger of reaching shuttle orbit and needing tracking telemetry. We will be using telescopes this weekend to try and track our highest flyers.

We also had some rockets that did some very funny things. Many were aerobatic. Some did corkscrews. Some did end-over-ends. Some lost parts on the way up and the way down. We had an award category for these rockets. We called it the Acrobat award.

We also had some awards for style. These boys came up with some clever looking rockets using them minimal supplies that were provided. Next year we promise more duct tape!

The winners were…………………drum roll please……………..

Patrick S.
Carter S.

Dylan F.
Weston B.
Highest Flyers
2nd – Soloman W.
Tied for first – Soorian P.
Tied for first – Davis M.

What’s great about our winners is that we had some from our new Scouts, our old Scouts, and our siblings.

The boys were very excited and jumping out of their shoes over the results of the contraptions they were able to build. See the attached picture. We want to give Mr. Todd a huge thanks for his engineering design skills, ingenuity, craftsmanship, maintenance, and launch management.

We’ll see everyone on Tuesday, September 29th for our next Pack meeting. Check with your Den Leaders to see when your next Den meetings are scheduled.

See you,
