    thank you,
    Also, what would be the closest airport to Potter?

    We are talking about shipping a rocket or two to somebody trustworthy and flying out for our first ever LDRS. I really hope we get to pull this off!

    Anyone know if the code for the hotel was posted anywhere? The web site says it would be posted on 10/31, but isn't there yet.

    I'm just trying to find out if taking the group discount locks you into a no-cancellation policy.

    Thanks!

    Fred - we sent it privately to everyone we wanted to attend. Looks like you did not make the cut.

    Fred, any reply to you has a built in implied smiley...


    Gary is now with Dave B. Between the outhouse and grease pit. As far as possible from Performance as I can do w/o asking permission form the next county.

    But I do.....

    I can control

    1. If you get registered and how much it costs.
    2. Where your parking is
    3. What goes up on the featured projects page in your name.

    And so on.

    And there is not a darn thing you can do about any of it aside from post online.

    Memo to self -> move Gary to "in the grease pit"

    Thanks Al for getting the code posted. Made my reservation today. The prices are great!

    How's the hotel? We stayed at in a hotel in Farmington last time and would like to find something better this time around.

    LDRS-31 hotel info

    The Host hotel info is now on the official site
    http://ldrs31.org
    contact info, instructions, pricing, the code which is "URG" and other usual contract stuff.

    an official forum is now online of course not any categories are setup yet.

    Camping on SITE is an absolute NO... sorry
    you will be kicked out before the local swamp creatures start taking children and small animals. you laugh were not kidding.... really.

    Front row, with the planning committee, and an express cattle run to the pad of your choice.

    It's gotta be better than the Motel Six in Geneva. The reviewer who wrote "It's a dumpster with windows" was paying it a compliment. We are also looking into options for those of you who travel with furry family members. I had heard that the host hotel - which is, I think, the same as for 28, is nice.

    One thing about camping Bill did not mention - While we have identified a few campgrounds, keep in mind that these are all seasonal and you may not be able to make reservations until spring. They are quite possibly closed for the year.

    What do they swap for children? Rocket parts? Motors? Or is this one of those spelling things again?

    They take away your sanity while you wait for the police to let you recover your rocket. Bring along your Crazy Hermit repellant.

    Why? We are hoping you will come!

    Not bad three days before the first hermit post!

    Hey if there is any way you can make up one of your red sparkys in a 54-1750 and smuggle it up here, I'll stop saying nice things about you.

    Plans for the summer are still unknown. This past year, I drove from New Mexico and spent the summer teaching a course at Syracuse. Might do that next year, but not sure I want to drive 2400 miles each way!

    My Sparky Red propellant is best in 3" motors and up. Or at night.
