Did you know that the Shamrock Showdown included a 4-way VFS duel?
posted: Mar 23rd, 2016 The Shamrock Showdown 2016 included once again a 4-way VFS competition, as well. SDC Core's team captain Jason Russell was in DeLand last year with his 2015 lineup to use the scoring and judging opportunity at the beginning of the competition season.
It turned out to be a valuable experience, and the lineup in DeLand won the gold medals at the USPA Nationals 2015.
SDC Core invited more VFS teams to attend this year's Shamrock Showdown. However, only the Golden Knights followed the call and started the 2016 season with a 12.1 outdoor average. The new lineup, with Dan Osorio replacing 8-way... (more)
Did you know that NSL-TV features the Golden Knights in 8-way at Paraclete XP?
posted: Mar 22nd, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News was not done with the coverage of the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2016 when the next events required attention, as well.
The story on March 10th explained how the Aerokart Boot Competition 2016 in Paris, France, was even indirectly connected to the event in Raeford, North Carolina.

Did you know that the Shamrock sequences for the first six rounds included three random formations?
posted: Mar 18th, 2016 The weather situation was not very promising for the Shamrock Showdown 2016, however, all teams completed six of the scheduled ten rounds on Friay.
The new NSL Talk with the event judges (Chris Talbert, Jim Rees, Dirk Venter) revealed that the competition draw was very challenging. Traditionally, the Shamrock teams pull the numbers and letters for the competition sequences out of the hat (trophy) by themselves, and they were responsible for the fact that all six memory blocks (3,5,10,12,16,17) were drawn for six different sequences.
On top of that, the first six rounds were slower and technically... (more)
