LDRS 39 - Rise Up!

LDRS (Large Dangerous Rocket Ships) is the premier annual rocketry event for the Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA). LDRS is the venue for rocketry enthusiasts to share their special projects and for manufacturers and vendors to display and demonstrate the latest products available.

For 2021, LDRS 39 will be hosted by Utah Rocket Club (UROC) at the world-famous Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah. This is UROC's second time hosting the event. 

Come join us for 4 days of launches July 29 – Aug 1, 2021. 

The Bonneville Salt Flats launch site provides over 40 square miles of a completely flat recovery area. When we say flat, we mean flat. So flat and smooth we’ll be flying at the same place where Speed Week occurs and new land speed records are set on a regular basis. We promise you won’t want to miss the incredible experience of launching on the salt. LDRS 39 will take place at the peak of the hot season on the Salt Flats. This allows us to have a fairly safe expectation for the flying conditions on the salt. 

For our HellFire Launch regulars, you will enjoy all the great conditions you have found at past launches: the wide-open space of the salt flats; plenty of launch pads - no waiting; a 25,000' waiver and the opportunity to meet friends from across the state and across the globe. Rocketeers will bring their projects to Bonneville to enjoy the great launching conditions. 

We will have an incredible list of Rocketry Vendors on site.

Don’t forget the TRA Banquet on Saturday, July 31st. Seating is limited, so reserve your spots early by pre-registering.

All of us at Tripoli Utah/Utah Rocket Club are excited about sharing our sky with you. We want to make your visit to the salt one that you will remember fondly for years to come. Please make sure to let us know of any questions, concerns or thoughts you might have and we look forward to flying with you this summer! 

Important Note about COVID

We are all concerned about COVID 19, and while several new vaccines are on the way to us. We are hopeful that our lives will soon return to normal. We also understand that if there is one thing that 2020 has taught us, we have to be ready for any surprises. LDRS 39 will fully comply with any event operation restrictions or safety advice provided to us by the Utah State Department of Health.

As the launch dates near, we will better understand what is affected by the virus. LDRS will adjust its processes and procedures to keep all attendees as safe as possible. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns at any time regarding LDRS 39 and COVID 19.
