Pack 443 Summertime Activities

The Dallas Area Rocket Society (DARS) is one of the largest, and the oldest Texas chapter, of the NAR (National Association of Rocketry). They have been promoting sport and hobby rocketry throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex nonstop for over 50 years. 

We will join their June launch event where the boys can watch rocket launches and even bring their own to launch!

This is an excellent opportunity to stoke our boys’ interest in science, math, aerospace or engineering. 

When: June 17th from 10am-12pm

Where: DARS Gunter launch site (exact Google Map coordinates for nav, look for red gate with DARS sign)

Cost: Kids launch free!

Prep: Buy and assemble a model rocket kit. Cubmaster Matt’s favorite spot to shop is Hobbytown in Lewisville or Plano.

What to bring: Model rocket (including recovery wadding and engines), water, chairs, sunscreen, snacks, etc.
