Rockets for launching will be provided by Cub Scouts Pack 50 on Launch Day. 
Assembled rockets will be available to visitors on launch day. 

Please assemble your rocket at home and bring it with you to launch. Allow the glue to dry overnight

Follow the assembly instructions printed in the package and use the tips below.

Building Tips
  •  Decorate and name your rocket for quick and easy identification
  • Do not glue or paint the nosecone into position... it must easily pop out to release the recovery streamer.
  • Refer to your Rocket Kit instructions and see attached pictures below for a final look of the rocket 
Mistakes to Avoid
  • Take care NOT to glue the motor mount tube glue backward. The end with the thrust ring should be in the middle of the rocket tube, not sticking out of the end
  • Take care NOT to install the motor clip backward 
  • Take care NOT to install the motor clip on the same side of the tube as the launch rod guide hole on the orange fins. Note in the picture below the guide hole is on top of the tube and the motor clip is on the bottom.
  • Make sure to install the streamer
  • Take care NOT to glue or paint the nose cone into place.
