Just curious if anyone has any numbers for this event or can point me to a thread with this info:

- Number of flights
- Volunteers each day
- Registered fliers

Thanks!

LDRS 39 was a great event with a well-run range, fantastic logistics work and a ton of people having a great time. There were a large number of people working very hard leading up to the big days and during the event. It takes time and effort to assemble that information and from the perspective of someone who has been in those shoes several times, some (many) days of decompression are desirable. I'm sure the data will be available in due time. ... or they may be even holding it back for TRA Report (or similar) publication (I don't know this one way or the other). Patience my friend.

Unofficially, numbers I have seen are about 300 flyers and almost 1,000 flights in 4 days. I am sure that more exact figures will be forthcoming. I had a great time! I thought that there were many great innovations including: a mile long flight-line, large numbers designating away-pad locations, left & right cattle gates with pad manager escorts and rocketeers choosing their own pads, golf carts for transporting pad managers with flight cards to the LCO, etc. were all great. There was a little bit of cloudy, maybe rainy weather on Friday morning, but it didn't last long. It seemed to me that flight turn-around time was pretty good.
