Rocket Launch & Education Outreach/Recruiting Opportunity

posted in: Special events | 0


The squadron will be doing another aerospace education outreach with 4-H on 29 July, during their Family Fun Day – see linked flyer below. This event is open to the public, and all are welcome to attend with their families. It’s a fun event and will also be a great recruiting opportunity. 

The rocket launch will run from 6 to 7 pm. We’ll be launching our rockets as part of a demonstration for 4-H youth, and we’ll help them launch smaller rockets they’ve previously built. One of the requirements to earn the CAP rocketry badge is to attend a launch, so it’s a good opportunity for those still working on this.

We’ve also had a request from 4-H to help with parking during the event – you must be 16 years or older to do this. Food will be provided to cadets who help with the rocket launch or parking.

Please use this sign up form only if you’re participating in the launch or can help with parking for part of the day:
