Pack 565 Families,

Well, most of our families have one week of school under their belt by now. We’re back in the swing of things, and it’s time to start thinking about Cub Scouts and fun times again!

We will have our first Pack meeting of the school year on Tuesday, September 1st at Eastminster Presbyterian Church. It will be our first ever Pack Rocket Regatta! (See the attached invitation; you can bring a friend, too.) Some of you have seen our monster rockets and know how high they can go. We will be looking to set the World 2-liter Bottle Rocket records for altitude at this event. Air traffic controllers at Dobbins and Hartsfield have been notified. The Weather Channel is predicting a 100% chance of rocket debris precipitation over scattered areas in East Cobb County.

The Pack meeting begins at 6:30 PM, but get there early so that you can build your rocket and be one of the first ones to launch.

We need everyone to put your 2-liter plastic soda bottle aside for this event. We saved about 20 from the pool party, but we’ll need about 60 more so that we can make sure every boy and sibling has one of their own. Otherwise, we’ll have to SHARE, gol-durnit! Todd P., otherwise known as Dr. Goddard, says that Coke products work best (if you are shopping). But bring any plastic bottles you have.

I would also bring lawn chairs, for the ultimate in your viewing experience. (That’s for the parents; kids will never use them.)

We’ll see you there! Mark your calendars.

One more thing about Rocket Regatta tomorrow night: Wear the yellow tee-shirts. It’s too hot for our dress uniforms. (We’ll have tee-shirts for sale.)
