The Upstate Research Rocketry Group, Inc (URRG) is located in Western New York. We are a NYS incorporated non-profit 501-C3 focusing on educational and research aspects of amateur rocketry.

We are dedicated to promoting model and high power rocketry , and are registered as prefecture #139 with the Tripoli Rocketry Association and NAR Section #765.

URRG has the privilege of flying at  Torrey Farms of Potter, NY, one of the finest fields in the Northeast. The former swamp nestled in the heart of the picturesque Finger Lakes wine region, is now a productive farm and has been the home to the July 4th “Muck Fest,” LDRS-28, LDRS-31, URRF, and LDRS-34.

URRG at Torrey Farms has been described by Rockets Magazine as the Notheast’s summer time rocketry destination

So whether you’re a BAR, an old timer, or just interested in seeing some amazing launches, take some time and visit us during a launch. We’re looking forward to seeing you at our next event!
