Florida's Indoor Cloud League group at iFLY Orlando on July 24th
Things may change as quickly in the Indoor Cloud League
world as it happens at a traditional outdoor competition. Yesterday's Sun Path Products NSL News story reported the Northern California Skydiving League as the new leader after the NCSL Tunnel Kicker on July 9th.
The NCSL scores and videos were posted after the Florida Skydiving League and the Czech Republic Skydiving League groups were already on the leaderboard. The Florida group had their second FSL Tunnel Kicker on July 17th but added only one single point to the total after the first event on July 3rd.
However, a different Florida group visited iFLY Orlando again on July 24th, and the new scores and videos after that event have now been posted. This time, Florida added nine points to the total and took back the top spot of the Indoor Cloud League leaderboard for July.
|July 2014||AAA Class||AA Class||A Class||Rookie AAA||Rookie AA||Rookie A||Total|
|1||iFLY Orlando (US)||21||25||21||19(-1)||23(-2)||22||131|
|2||iFLY SF Bay (US)||33||19||13||21(-1)||16||21||123|
|3||Skydive Arena (CZ)||24||31||17||-||-||-||72|
DeLand Aurai members with Jairo Garcia
The additional nine points were added by two groups. Gilles Dutrisac guided James Hall, Jim Prochaska and Sebastian Jimemez to the 21-pointer for the A Class sequence (6,9) which added four points to the iFLY Orlando account after a previous 17-pointer. The video of all flying sessions at iFLY Orlando on July 24th shows that the same group also tried to improve the AA and AAA Class scores, which did not turn out successfully.
DeLand Aurai's Rookie Class lineup had missed the FSL Tunnel Kicker on July 17th, and three members were back for last Thursday's meeting. Actually, only Alix Raymond and Leslie Eggenberger are original members of the team that was founded at iFLY Orlando last year. Rodrigo Espinosa is currently filling the indoor and outdoor slot for the newest Aurai member, Adam Money, who had to commit to a shoulder surgery after a wake-boarding injury earlier this month.
Jairo Garcia completed the indoor lineup last week, who improved the Rookie AAA Class score by one point and added four points in the Rookie AA Class. The additional total of nine points in those three categories brought iFLY Orlando back to the top.
Three POPS world champions with Randy Cutlip
Several new flyers participated at the FSL Tunnel Kicker on July 24th. Many of the new flyers are young skydivers who want to improve their individual skills and are looking for an opportunity to meet others and join the Florida Skydiving League activities. However, sometimes there are also older and experienced outdoor skydivers who eventually decide to use the new training tool and challenge their own skills.
Three members of the reigning POPS 4-way world champion team (DeLand 4 - Mike Raible, Alberto Alibrandi, Thomas Finnegan) signed up for last Thursday's FSL Tunnel Kicker for the first time. Randy Cutlip replaced the 4th original team member, Mike Truffer, founder of the Skydiving Magazine, who died after a skydiving accident last year.
The POPS 4-way dive pool is identical with the Rookie Class, and DeLand 4 had an internal competition with other Rookie Class lineups at iFLY Orlando. The team did not contribute to the iFLY Orlando account this time and will hopefully be back for more - maybe soon in the A Class...
