Did You Know...

... that iFLY SF Bay and iFLY Sacramento had their next 1-point battle in June?

iFLY Sacramento team in January
posted Jul 5th, 2018 - Previous Indoor Cloud League updates have mentioned the extremely tight competition on the 12+ leaderboard between the two teams of the Northern California Skydiving League, iFLY Sacramento and iFLY SF Bay.

The ICL 2018 season began for both teams with a 1-point thriller to the advantage of iFLY SF Bay (102 - 101) in January. The recent and ongoing battle heated up again in April when iFLY Sacramento won by two points (111 - 109) and the NSL News picked up the topic on May 4th.

The May competition turned out to be even tighter, as both teams finished with the same total (110 - 110) for the month, and the most recent scores for June simply continue the same battle, this time with the next 1-point advantage for iFLY SF Bay.

The two NCSL indoor teams have now been separated by one single point for the total of the past three months (324 - 323) while iFLY Sacramento is hanging on to the lead for the current total (652 - 613) at half-time of the 2018 season.

Only indoor 4-way: McKenzie Brown (right)
iFLY Sacramento's team did not have the complete DeLoreans lineup available to take on the AAA and AA sequences and battle for iFLY Sacramento with Cali4nia Raptors, due to an injury of team member Jason Russell. The Raptors tied iFLY Orlando's AAA Class highscore and won the internal NCSL competition in this category by seven points.

iFLY Orlando actually won the Open Class combination (AAA/AA) on the 12+ leaderboard for the month of June with two different lineups.

iFLY Sacramento's Rookie Class lineup (RR - R) compensated for the loss in the AAA Class and maxed out the scoring options with 25-pointers in both categories. Michael Beaudreau, Mika Miettinen, Anthony Biasotti and player-coach Julius Frank lost only one point for iFLY SF Bay in the RR Class (24 - 25) while there was a larger difference for the R Class sequence.

NCSL Director Lori Connor said that 4-way Rookie McKenzie Brown, who posted the two 30-pointers with the two player-coaches, is iFLY Sacramento's first exclusive indoor 4-way competitor. Her sister Lauren Brown has also attended Indoor Cloud League events in Texas. McKenzie Brown and Reed Lawson are both not eligible any longer for two of the three Rookie Class sequences (R - RR).

Eric Gin with Team Fastrax in 2005
The May competition of the Indoor Cloud League had featured the comeback of an experienced 4-way competitor at iFLY SF Bay.

Eric Gin was a member of the second Team Fastrax generation. He was recruited for the 2004 lineup when coach Niklas Hemlin took the player-coach position after working with the team at the very beginnings in the AA Class. Fastrax moved up into the AAA Class in 2004, with Billy Andrews, Eric Gin, John Hart and Niklas Hemlin in the lineup.

He trained and competed for two years with the fully sponsored team and was done after the 19.7 average and a 5th place with Fastrax at the FAI World Cup 2005.

He continued for a few years in different lineups before his name disappeared from 4-way competition. The May leaderboard of the Indoor Cloud League brought his name back in a Rookie Class lineup, as he started easy with his comeback.

Now he was back in two different June lineups, and one of them took on the AAA Class sequence for iFLY SF Bay. Welcome back, Eric...
