The WSCR Awards are Back! On Jan 29, 2012, for the
first time in nearly 20 years, eight gals made an "all new" WSCR star
to earn their numbers! The last time that eight women (who didn't have a
WSCR) were able to build a qualifying star was in Paso Robles CA, Sept 20, 1992.
The attraction for these new recipients was USPA's national event
"Sisters in Skydiving" at Skydive AZ on the last weekend in January.
Ladies from all over the country gathered for a giant "slumber party" in
the air to practice their techniques and learn new skydiving skills.
The new WSCR women worked hard to earn their success, making five dives
that were sometimes oh-so-close, and other times "Oh no!!" Their sixth
jump clicked and they made Women's Skydiving History!
