The Indoor Cloud League
keeps growing. The newest group joined the indoor competition project this month and has its home at iFLY Dallas in Texas.
Seven different wind tunnel groups from three different countries are now competing month by month for the highest scores in the six categories, and experienced competitors and new flyers are having a great time together.
4way competitor Amanda Lampton is organizing the iFLY Dallas group, whose 13 participants and four coaches worked together for the first ICL scores. The total of 98 points puts iFLY Dallas in 3rd place at the moment for the month of March. The four coaches (Amanda Lampton, Mike Hotchkiss, Scott Levy, Lucas King) outscored Florida's AA Class lineup at the first appearance.

One of the two A Class lineups at iFLY Dallas did the same as the coaches in the AA Class and are one point ahead of iFLY Orlando. Shannon McCarthy, Karen Bilder, Genifer Oliver and player coach Amanda Lampton posted a 15-pointer in this category. However, both groups are currently far behind the very competitive group of Czech 4way teams at the Skydive Arena in Prague.
This may change soon in Dallas. Amanda Lampton said that the events of her first month went very well. The next ICL activities at iFLY Dallas are in the works for the month of April and will bring more and new flyers for the group.
Amanda Lampton's coaches helped all lineups, who had internal competition in four of the six categories. Only the best sequences with the highest scores are posted and add up for the total amount of scoring points for each group.
USPA Intermediate Class gold medals for Mike Hotchkiss in 2013

in the AA/Intermediate Class.
Lucas King and Scott Levy were team mates with Dallas 350 in 2013. They finished three points behind the bronze medal position in the AAA/Advanced Class with a 13.5 average. Solly Williams was in the lineup at the national championships substituting for an open slot. Khaos Khobalt and Dallas 350 both attended other meets during the regular season in Texas.

Christie Blomster was the 4th Perris Wicked member, and the team posted a 14.8 average at the USPA Nationals 2012.
