[Planet News] ROC to host LDRS 26 in Jean, Nevada, July 12-17, 2007

LDRS is the annual "big event" for the Tripoli Rocketry Association, the hobby of high-power rocketry's premier national organization. Once a
year, LDRS gives rocketry hobbyists from all around the world the opportunity to gather together and fly lots of rockets and the bigger and more extreme the projects, the better.
LDRS is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek acronym; it stands for "Large and Dangerous Rocket Ships", and the name aptly captures the extreme nature of the event: at LDRS, you'll see flights of some of the biggest, fastest, and just plain coolest rockets around. However, despite the name, there's no reason to panic. All launch activities are conducted with the safety of participants and spectators as the number one consideration, in accordance with an extensive safety code.
There are few organizations that can effectively play host to an event of this size. However, 2007 will mark the second time that the Rocketry Organization of California (ROC - website: http://www.rocstock.org ), has hosted LDRS: the first time was in 2001, when ROC held LDRS 20 in Lucerne, CA.
ROC is the one of the largest rocketry clubs in the world, with years of experience holding world-class rocketry events. Twice a year for the last 12 years, ROC has held "ROCstock", a three-day rocket launch event that attracts thousands of fliers and spectators.
ROC is bringing its extensive experience to Jean Dry Lakebed, and this promises to be the best LDRS ever! You won't want to miss it, so start making your plans to attend.
Please check the LDRS 26 web site, (http://www.ldrs26.org ), for more information, including how to make discounted reservations at the LDRS 26 host hotels. Flyer registration for LDRS 26 will be opening soon; check back at the web site for details over the next few weeks, or sign up on the web site for an emailed announcement as soon as details become available.
