Volunteers Needed : Allamuchy Day Saturday June 4th!

The Radical Rocketeers will again be participating in the local community event, Allamuchy Day.    We need some volunteers to come out that day to help us with the following activities:

  • Bring out some of your rockets, small and large, for a static display at our table at the event.
  • Bring some small rockets to fly for demo launches throughout the day.
  • We also expect to be giving out paper rockets to kids at the event, and will need some hands to help with this.   We also expect to provide kids with an engine to fly it at the event, so hands to help with this prep and launches would be helpful.

Allamuchy Township is the community local to our launch site at the farm.   Its a great opportunity to acquaint our neighbors with what we do.    Judging from past participation at Allamuchy Day there will be lots of kids, young and old, very eager to get a taste of our safe and family fun hobby!

The event runs from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday June 4th.   There will be tons of other activities and entertainment so bring the whole family and make a day of it!

Please RSVP if you think you can make it.   Either through our club forum, through our Facebook page, or by email to our info@ email address.

It promises to be a FUN day!   Thanks!!
