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.
