MAKE IT & TAKE IT: Weekend family activities 

  The annual "Armadillo Blast Day" for Austin-area Cub Scouts will launch from 3-5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 2 at Pioneer Farms.

  The event will feature small rockets built and fired by Cub Scouts in the Armadillo District of the Capitol Area Council. The public will be able to watch the display, but only Scouts will be allowed to fire the rockets.

  Information will be available at the event for boys to join Cub Scouts, and every new Cub Scout that signs up will receive a free rocket kit.

  Come join us for this special public exhibition.
