With its rich history and modern diverting family activities, LDRS XXXI had something for flier and family alike. The field at the Torrey Farms of Potter is of a grand scale, not typically found or available for rocket flying and recovery on the East Coast. The former finger lake turned swamp turned nutrient-rich farm land was the perfect venue for five days. The recovery area was approximately 1.5 miles wide by 7 miles long. This offered more than enough space to keep a high-flying project landing on flat ground and out of the surrounding trees, provided the flier didn't deploy at apogee. With a 22,500-foot waiver, there were plenty of rocketeers itching to exceed three miles in altitude and visit a place many have never dreamed of, at speeds they never considered.
