Total time to assemble is only about 10 minutes and the rockets can be launched about 45 minutes after they are completed at your house (the glue on a few parts needs time to dry). Please wear the bright orange class B uniform.

Once the rockets arrive, an email will be sent out with instructions for picking them up. Please RSVP by Monday, June 25 so we can purchase the rockets. Please note the total number of rockets you would like to purchase in the notes section when RSVPing.  Siblings are welcome.
