Webelos Experience

On Saturday October 5th, MASA members Carol Marple, Mike Erpelding and Jeff Taylor participated in the Boy Scouts of America Northern Star Council's Webelos Experience held at Stearns Scout Camp near Annandale, MN. 

The weekend event included camping, exhibits and games for Webelos and their parents.

Carol, Mike and Jeff manned the Rocketry booth as one of the exhibit tents, which ranged from rocketry, RC planes, scuba diving, camping, auto racing. science and trapping, to wilderness survival.

The exhibit tents were set up Saturday morning, and by the end of the day, approximately 3,600 scouts, leaders and parents had passed through. 

The MASA exhibit included everything from entry-level low power rockets to complex level 2 high power rockets.  The scouts got a glimpse of different types and sizes of rockets, different recovery methods, altimeters and several different motors types and sizes.
