I hopped out to Montreal to make some Sparrow model planes with some Cub Scouts in the Kirkland area. The original plan was to make and fly Squirrels but it was breezy so I decided to make Sparrows.
I must say they are easy to make.
I didn’t get any good video but I managed to land one on that roof across from the field (see pictures). I included a video of the Sparrow from another flying session so you can get the idea how much fun this is.
I just received this certificate of appreciation and comments from Cub Scouts in Maple Ridge, BC.
As part of our Pack Specialty Badge, we recently held our Glider Workshop where the
Cubs really enjoyed building their Squirrel gliders as well as learning new skills, with a little
help from parents and grandparents. I used your suggested method of demo at each stage
and then sending the Cubs back to their tables to do their portion, worked great.
Attached are pictures of 1ST Haney Cub Scouts, “Pack A” Glider Workshop we held on
Saturday, November 10th. Please feel free to add them to your web page. Also attached
is a Certificate of Appreciation from our pack.
On behalf of the Cubs and leaders of 1ST Haney Cub Scouts, Pack A, thank you so
much for the great gliders, as you can see in the pictures the fixed attention the
