The Sun Path Products NSL News followed up on May 14th with Black Cat from Russia, and the current results have not changed much since the last update.

FLY-IN France, Black Cat and Qatar Tigers were separated by one single point after the ten rounds in Bedford (276 - 275 - 275) and there is no obvious reason why it would be much different half a year later at Skydive Chicago...
