What the Entire Pack is "Doing" Together...

Rocket Launch Postponed

posted Sep 22, 2018, 7:46 AM by Pack 1070 Cubmaster   [ updated Sep 23, 2018, 7:30 AM by Pack 1070 Committee Chair ]

Due to the weather, the Rocket Launch is postponed until next week.  

Even if the rain subsides this afternoon, the grass will not dry fast enough....cardboard rockets do not mix well with wet grass.

The Rocket Launch is rescheduled for next Sunday, 30 Sept, 3-5 PM at Heritage Farm Park.

Launch into Scouting

posted Sep 10, 2017, 10:26 AM by Pack 1070 Cubmaster   [ updated Sep 7, 2018, 4:56 PM by Pack 1070 Committee Chair ]

Join us at Heritage Farm Park on September 23rd, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. for our annual model rocket launch.  Each Scout will get to launch a rocket, some climbing to 1600' or even higher.  

This is a great event for the Scouts and is also a great recruiting tool, so if you Scout has a friend who may be interested in Scouts it is a great time to introduce them to the program.  Hope you can all make it.

Join us at Heritage Farm Park on September 11, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. for our annual model rocket launch.  Each Scout will get to launch a rocket, some climbing to 1600' or even higher.  

A reminder that any new scout who registers with BSA will receive a model rocket kit of their very own (not sure when District will distribute rockets!)!  

This is a great event for the Scouts and is also a great recruiting tool, so if you Scout has a friend who may be interested in Scouts it is a great time to introduce them to the program.  Hope you can all make it.

Scouting for Food
 is an annual food collection orchestrated by Scouts from National Capital Area Council. Local Scouts distribute plastic bags to homes across the region and return to pick up the bags, now filled with food, one week later. Collected food is distributed to needy families throughout the communities of the Council.

 

Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Venturing crews and Sea Scout ships throughout the Council will be distributing Scouting for Food donation bags in local neighborhoods.  They return to collect those bags one week later.
