Several thousand Texas Scouts gathered this fall to launch more than 3,000 rockets into the sky. They also launched themselves into the Guinness Book of World Records.
When 3,130 rockets took flight at the same time from a launch area near College Station, Texas, the Scouts from the Sam Houston Area Council (SHAC) became certified record holders for most simultaneous model rockets launched.
The event, called SHAC Jam, also offered Scouts shooting sports, outdoors cooking, crafts and other high adventure activities.
