Was real excited to watch LDRS on the Discovery channel a few months
ago. The multi-part show had everything from a flying outhouse to the
most launches at one time.
With LDRS in my own backyard in NY next month I was just wondering if
we know of any great events that will be there. I know the ceiling
will be alot lower than when it was out west so I won't expect the
Gates brothers to fly some of the monster stuff I saw before on TV and
DVD. But are there any good complex flights for example scheduled?
Anyone from RMR going to LDRS? Any "M" or "N" flights lined up?
Just check the web site for the projects www.ldrs23.org

Thanks. If I could see clearly it would help! I went to that site
before I posted but I didn't see the PROJECTS link at the top of the
page the first time around. No wonder why I can't get the fins on

I'll be there. I'm not sure of what I'm flying yet. I'm sure there
will be plenty of big stuff going up.
When you get tired of the Gates Bros, check this out for a big un -

As already mentioned.......check out the website. So far, there are 69 BFR (M
and above) projects, registered. I've heard of two cancellations, but that
still leaves more than a few:-)! Bunches of vendors, hundreds of registered
flyers, flying bowling balls and plenty of motors. What more could a rocket guy

Be sure to come by the Pratt Hobbies booth. We won't be selling, since
we're concentrating on supporting Hybrid Alley, but we will be showing
some truly interesting stuff. Hint: if you want to fly an O motor but
can't get a LEUP, you want to talk to us!

Can you bring stuff ordered with you or should I order now & have it
shipped? I want to get some tubular kevlar.

To make it easier to get to the projects forums - I have added a link
to the main "Projects" that will bring up the "Featured Projects"
category. Within the Featured Projects category there is the BFR
Projects (Complex L's, M & N), Cert Flights, Scale, and Bowling Ball
Loft forums. There's still a week & half to go... if anyone wants a
forum added for projects that don't fit one of these, just say so, and
I'll create it.
Also let me note a few other LDRS 23 items...
There is still have plenty of space left for the banquet, which is
open to anyone... you don't have to be a TRA member to attend.
Sometime sat night I should have a list of confirmed registered
flyers on the website. Those flyers should have recieved by now - a
confirmation & requested parking pass(es) in the mail. If your name
does NOT appear on the website and you believe you registered, or if
something on your confirmation does not look correct, please feel free
to contact me. Note: For anyone who requested more than 3 parking
passes, we only sent out 3 so as to keep the postage down. If you need
more you can pick them up at the registration tent.
Also sometime sat night or sunday, we should have the Range Duty
Manager online. Currently we have several other Prefectures who are
lined up as range volunteer hosts for a shift - with some combination
of filled, reserved, and open positions. The reserved positions are to
be filled by the host prefecture... so if your prefecture is looking
for volunteers for thier shift, now is the time for you to step
forward. That leaves "open positions"... which are open to anyone
wanting to volunteer. You will be able to volunteer online by
registering to the site forums, and then selecting any open shifts. If
any Prefecture wants to host a shift, we could still use one for the
Thursday afternoon shift. Also if you want to volunteer, but are not
sure if you are expierenced enough for a given position... we have a
few xtra "trainee" positions builtin to the online signup.
