Rocket Launch / Induction Ceremony

Family Event

Cost: Free + $5 entry fee per rocket

Annual CVNSND Rocket Launch Saturday, September 23rd at the Fields in Broadview Heights. The Fields are located on Broadview Road, just 1⁄2 mile north of Route 82, at the intersection of Broadview and Royalwood Road. The pavilion is located next to / behind the tennis courts.  Registration of rockets will begin at 12:00 p.m., and there is a $5 entry fee per rocket. There will also be several SURPRISE prize opportunities for all of our young rocketeers!

Lunch will be on your own, so please pack a picnic lunch and bring a blanket and/or folding chairs so you can sit back, relax and watch the show!

First launch is scheduled for around 1:00 pm. Trophies will be awarded for best style in each age group. You can pick up a rocket kit at a local hobby shop, craft store or on-line retailer. Rockets must be single stage and designed to accept an A or B engines. A or B engine sizes will be provided by the Longhouse at the event, so there is no need to buy an engine for the rocket. Just be sure to bring an assembled rocket.

ADDITIONAL TIPS FROM A ROCKETEER: (Mentions do not imply endorsement)
  • Don’t break the bank on a rocket. You may not get it back.
  • Northeast Ohio weather can make flight patterns erratic.
  • We are no longer permitting younger siblings to be strapped to rockets.
  • Estes brand kits are tried and true and the instructions are more pictograms than written text.
  • Semroc kits tend to have more detail and better instructions than the Estes.
  • You may want to start building your rocket prior to the the night before the launch so the fins have time to dry.
  • The local hobby shops stock some kits, but not a great selection.  All the vendors below ship promptly.
  • Some places to buy rockets online:

This event promises to be a great introduction to our organization for the new members and their families as we begin to create memories together. This is a family event with Pathfinders welcome.

Thank you for your enthusiasm for our great organization!  It’s not too late for any new members to register for the new program year, so please continue to encourage new families to go on-line and register this week.  Have a great week and I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the Rocket Launch.
