The rescheduled Space Derby is Saturday March 16th.  We will be at Pine Grove Elementary.      

Check-in is from 9:00am
Racing starts at 9:45am  

Schedule: Check in will be 9:00 - 9:30 and the races will start between 9:45 & 10:00.  The race will conclude by noon!  We will need help with installing rubber bands, winding rockets, and staging rockets so be ready to jump in!  Registration Link Below:

REMINDER: Do not install your rubber bands.  Bring the 4 bands that came with your rocket separately.  Have your propeller assembly ready to go but not installed with Rubber Bands.  We will install Lubed Rubber bands at the race.  We will start with two and see how that goes.  Two years ago we tried three and had a bunch of binding and Rockets that did not go very far.  This year we will try 2 bands with more twists and see what we get.  It is important to come with the bands not installed so we can make sure each rocket get the same number of bands lubed in the same manner.  Please review the attached Rules Sheet!
