SCR Scrambles remembered Can't Post

It's Labor Day Weekend and as a lot of us old farts, those that can still remember, may recall the "SCR Scrambles" at "Old Elsinore." It's 1730 at the Lake now. Still time for a load or two. The bonfire, beer and food are almost ready. Anyone remember "Grouper's Pig Roast!!" Vans circled in the parking lot, "Safety Meetings" everywhere!! Me, Art Tucker, Chris (my ex), and I think Roddy Gegan did a Howard load, were open under canopy and got down to about a grand when off to one side we hear bodies in freefall and hooting and hollerin' as canopies open, it's "The Latins" hummin' it but good!! The beer, the band and don't forget the Night Nude Ground Star!! How much fun can you really have????

Rod died 6 years ago this month. :(
Take care

i don't know about LIMO_LOAD.jpg but I know i jumped in Perris with the lady in back row center... but can't for the life of me, remember her name (Laurie keeps coming to mind) ...

but in same pick, kneeling second from right, in white jumpsuit, is Spyder .....(real name, I don't think I ever knew...

Spyder was part of our team SkyScuzz, for Perris 6 way competition back around 81.
We were poor ... so we had Hell-Day practice (3 jumps) in lieu of a Hell Week .

and we had a team 'sketch artist' we were too poor for Video

we averaged 4 pts a round ... unfortunately, we only ever got 1 in time and turned 3 each round, after legal time expired ... we was slow to start and finished like mad men !! CoolCoolCoolCool

if anyone knows anything current about SPyder ... let me know

That girl is Robin Lopez.
Her boyfriend is on her left, Dave Reddick.
He was killed at Perris in a canopy collision.
The Limo Load was a memorial jump into the Flinn Springs Inn for two of our Skydiver friends who died a month apart.
I have no idea where Spyder is now.

Hello Roger,

As I remember it, in 1969 we called the SCR meets
SCR Stumbles. I still have a Stumbles patch I got form Inga.

It's 19:32 on the Friday before Labor Day. Another year has shot by and the "Stumbles" comes back to haunt what's left of my ruined mind. Any of you other old farts still have enough braincells intact to remember and post a "memory" of the "Stumbles"....
