The iFLY Orlando team was missing the AAA Class number after the FSL Tunnel Kicker earlier this month. Emily Bombardi, Leslie Eggenberger, James Hall and Amer Kassas met in Orlando later to perform both Open Class sequences (AAA - AA). They filled the open slot for the AAA Class sequence and improved the AA Class score, as well.
The Tampa team met on the Thursday before the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2018, and several participants traveled to North Carolina a day later. There was a large delegation of 4-way and 8-way competitors from Florida in Raeford who were on different teams and different leaderboards.
James Hall and Jimmy Xu are Indoor Cloud League regulars and finished 9th on the AAA Class leaderboard with Fast4ward XP. Jimmy Xu had been on three different lineups on Thursday in Tampa. He also competed with SCZ ZEUS at Paraclete, where he joined forces with Amer Kassas, Alex Jordaan and Ian Pedowitz.

iFLY Tampa - Best of February
Amer Kassas, Jimmy Xu, Alex Jordaan and Ian Pedowitz plan to continue this year for SCZ ZEUS, and the 16.9 average is a good starting point for new AAA Class competitor Amer Kassas.
He also competed with SCZ ZEUS 2.5 in the AA Class, a second lineup from Skydive City that had Indoor Cloud League regulars Donna Kim and Ed Ganley in the lineup.
New SCZ ZEUS member Alex Jordaan, who has trained and competed with South Africa's national 4-way team Savolo in the past, teamed up with fellow South African Karl Meyer for the AA Class competition.
Leslie Eggenberger and Emily Bombardi completed this lineup. Emily Bombardi had posted the AAA and AA scores for iFLY Orlando and was then in the lineup that posted the A Class score for iFLY Tampa before the trip to Paraclete.

The team name Foreign Affairs probably relates to the two South African members and Leslie Eggenberger, who is originally from Guatemala, while Emily Bombardi has Brazilian roots.
Jimmy Xu and Amer Kassas posted the scores for the AAA and AA sequences in Tampa, together with Sally Craig-Hathaway and Christine Freiherr.
Jimmy Xu was also player-coaching Tampa's Rookie Class lineup to the ICL February scores.
