Did you know that Koloncok stands for a cow bell on the coach's neck?
posted: Feb 22nd, 2017 The latest update of the field for the World Challenge 2017 has turned especially the power rankings in the AA and Rookie categories into a very international affair. The currently registered seven teams in the AA Class are from six different countries, even though none of the many UK teams have signed up yet. Zero from Italy has competed at the ISR Grand Prix three times, stepped up from the A Class to AA in November last year and now travel to Bedford for the first time. The HF Junior Cubs are new on the top of the power rankings, as well, even though it was only a matter of time when Czech... (more)

Did you know that Echochamber and Team X are Sweden's national 4-way indoor champions?
posted: Feb 21st, 2017 The Sun Path Products NSL News covered last year's exciting finish of the Swedish Indoor Nationals on 18 February 2016, and the story on 30 July 2016 followed up with the outdoor championships five months later. Both times the same two teams (Gryttjom Volo - Echochamber) challenged each other, even though it was a much closer race at the indoor competition. Then they met each other again at the FAI Indoor World Cup 2016, and Volo won by ten points. Echochamber has increased the indoor training ever since, while the main Swedish 4-way rival disbanded after the October event, and Echochamber has... (more)

Did you know that multiple 8-way world champion Nikolay Sukharnikov lost his life in a car accident in December?
posted: Feb 20th, 2017 The Sun Path Products NSL News had to cover sad news on 4 May 2015. Nikolay Vylegzhanin, member of Russia's national 4-way and 8-way Barkli lineups at the FAI World Meet 2014 in Prostejov, had died in a BASE jump accident shortly after the competition in the Czech Republic. Bad luck continued for Russia's Formation Skydiving community, and especially for the same 8-way team. Nikolay Sukharnikov was one of Nikolay Vylegzhanin's 8-way team mates in Prostejov, and together they had won the 8-way silver medals for Russia. He lost his life in a car crash on December 16th last year. He was on his... (more)

Did you know that Florida's ICL competitors are getting ready for the WTL March meet?
posted: Feb 19th, 2017 iFLY Tampa's new Indoor Cloud League team followed up on the first participation in January and posted a full set of six scores and videos last Thursday for February's 14+ leaderboard. Several of the participants in Tampa had attended ICL events in iFLY Orlando's flying chamber before, which did not allow two of the blocks that were drawn for February's 14+ sequences. Block 4 (Monopod - Monopod) was in the A Class sequence, and the AAA/AA Class teams took on Block 8 (Canadian T - Canadian T) for the first time. The complete AAA/AA Class lineup at iFLY Tampa is new to AAA/Open Class competition,... (more)

Did you know that Weembi's signature lineup has not competed at the World Challenge yet?
posted: Feb 17th, 2017 The recent preview of the World Challenge 2017 included the list of teams that were already registered at this point in time, and it was history a few days later after several more teams signed up. The Sun Path Products NSL News will soon follow up with the new field. NMP PCH HayaBusa and Weembi Lille are still on the top of the current power ranking, which is not going to change. Even Arizona Airspeed would not be able to interfere with the top positions, as the U.S. national team has to offer "only" 30.5 as the highest indoor average. Airspeed is neither traveling to Bedford nor to the... (more)
