Sounds interesting.

How does the $1000 break down? All slots covered, coaches time etc?

Who decides who gets the Scholarship and is it location based?

So, for those of us not at FnD, who was the lucky candidate, and as above, how does the scholarship break down?

Wicked Wingsuits and Tony Wingsuits is very proud to have presented Ashley Marquardt with the 2011 Wicked Wingsuits Future Flocker Scholarship at Flock and Dock 7 this past weekend.

Ashley was able to make immediate use of the award by making 9 wingsuit jumps at the event. Many of them coached by Jeff Nebelkopf. Her 50th wingsuit jump was a 12 way where she got to the slot quickly and then held it with with pride.

Congratulations to Ashley who is soon moving to Skydive Carolina for the summer, we hope this helps you develop into the best wingsuiter you can be!

More news in the Fall about applying for next years WWFFS.

- $1000 over 6 months, $167 a month. Can be accrued.
- Must be spent on wingsuit "airtime" which can include coaching or could be all personal slots.
- The officers of Wicked Wingsuits, Inc determine the recipient.

Might expand to include a winter award if there is enough interest. Will possibly be including a wingsuit for the award period from the http://WingsuitRental.com fleet.

If you are interested in the program make mention of it here and based on repsonses we will decide how to develop it. It was a quickly conceived idea that I would like to see mature into something quite serious for the community.

It's time to figure out next seasons Wingsuiter for the future. We don't have a lot of rules. You need to be around 200 jumps with a passion for Wingsuiting. 1 Wingsuit jump or 20....lets hear from you. Even -1 Wingsuit jumps and you are eligible.
