You've likely seen some postings or links to the NH Scout Jamboree or heard some talk of it at a CMASS or MMMSC launch. Well, the event is upon us and we need to count up our volunteers. The event is this Saturday, 10 October, at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. We plan to drop off the club trailers on Friday but with the predicted weather, we won't be able to set up until Saturday morning.
We plan on using several sawhorses with launch rods installed and the launch equipment from the two clubs. We would like to start setting up at 7 AM on Saturday with the activity running from 9 AM to 4 PM per the event schedule. We would like to have as many people on-hand as possible because we have no idea how many scouts will be participating.
Scouts have had the opportunity to purchase and build Fliskits rockets throughout the summer. Any rocket that's brought up to safety check needs to be reviewed with a cautious eye. It would be great if we could man some stations to "fix" any problems in the builds so the scouts could fly their rocket. We hope to have some ready-to-fly rockets available for scouts to buy or borrow if they decide to fly at the last minute.
