It was nothing unusual that the events at iFLY Orlando were well attended when the Orlando tunnel was the only one in Florida. This changed when iFLY Tampa launched their operation of the 14+ flying chamber, and there was even a longer break until iFLY Orlando came back on the 12+ leaderboard of the Indoor Cloud League.
Seven different lineups competed in Orlando for the six scores on the June leaderboard, and six of the seven teams won the honor to represent the Florida team this month so far.
The Florida team included two new participants, Jen O'Hara and Lucas Weiss, who were both in one of the six lineups that posted the highest scores for the June competition.

iFLY Orlando - Best of June
It was the second time this year that Florida's Tampa team did not score any points in one of the six categories, and it was once again the R Class sequence without a scoring number. The Tampa team is going neck to neck with iFLY Seattle on the 2018 leaderboard, and there are still a few days left to add the missing score.
Three Florida competitors (Amer Kassas, James Hall, Kanishka Perera) attended both events, which were separated by one week. Kanishka Perera has made his way from the Rookie Class in 2016 to AAA Class sequences two years later. His team tied the highscore for the slot-switcher, even though his rear piece with coach Bob Byrne has not been exposed yet to one of the two memory blocks (5, 17) that switches the piece partner.
His wife Champaka Nagaraju has also picked up indoor 4-way training and competition and posted the 18-pointer for the Orlando team in the R Class. Kanishka Perera is an outdoor 4-way competitor, as well.
