Women's Star Crest Recipient Awards in Skydiving

Byron DZs 1st WSCRs!

Bay Area Skydiving's women earned their WSCR Awards--a first at the Byron CA DZ!  On April 27, 2013, Byron CA's drop zone saw its first 8-woman star!  It was an "all new" WSCR formation, meaning that none of the women had previously earned a WSCR. Since 1992, only a few of these "all new" WSCR Stars have been built. 

The WSCR jump followed a day of 4-way SCRambles at the DZ--making skydiving history.  The ladies got plenty of encouragement in the air as four guys flew near the formation, hoping for a chance to dock, once the women's star was complete.  Now that they know they can do it, the gals have promised the guys more opportunities to get their WSCRs this summer at Byron.

From 12:00,  clockwise:  Rachel Kanowski, Tina Dobleman, Krisanne Combs, Karen Woolem, Deborah Bingham, Erin Bishop, Lori Connor, Amanda Lum-Simmons.
