Getting To Know Team Scarecrow


This month we at the Blue Skies office started following Team Scarecrow on their journey towards nationals where they will compete in the 3-Way Artistic Freefly division. Much like the gaggle of girlish crumbs that follow SkyGod around we have become enamoured, doting fans of these three amazing characters whose home drop zone is the Ranch where they run the Scarecrow School of Bodyflight and are busy training in the Sky Venture New Hampshire Wind Tunnel. We are so certain that you too are going to love these boys that we are giving you a formal introduction.

Nicknames

Tuck Pendelton in the movie “Innerspace”.

I'm also a Reverend (Yes, a real deal non-denominational Revered. I have
officiated many weddings, including my teammate Dave's this past May) so my
stage name for music purposes became Reverend Tuck Pendelton.

Goals, dreams and aspirations in skydiving

learning and pushing myself to do new things in bodyflight, but

most importantly always staying humble, would really like to take home a Gold in Pro Freefly and get to the World
Meet.

A random thought or phrase 
The dude abides.

If you could be any fictitious character who would it be? Why?

a Wizard Viking Elf. I mean, who

doesn't want wizard powers? And Vikings get to ride around in rad ships and
probably never pay for a drink in their entire life. Plus, both
aforementioned professions have pretty sweet hair and beard set ups.Add the Elf into the
equation and you live forever without getting older. Sign me up.

If you’re reading this article, then there is a strong likelyhood

that you've experienced the good of our sport. And it is very good;
however, with the good comes the bad too. Please just be aware of it.

 I always wanted to be Cap'n Crunch. Everyone just seemed so happy to hang
out with him.
