Did You Know...

... that iFLY Tampa is only 21 ICL points behind iFly Seattle (1167 - 1147)?

Highscore in July: iFLY Seattle team
posted Dec 4th, 2018 - The Indoor Cloud League competition is not only coming to an exciting finish between Hurricane Factory and Paraclete XP on the 14+ leaderboard, as the NSL News pointed out yesterday. The competition between the Florida Skydiving League at iFLY Tampa and the Northwest Skydiving League at iFLY Seattle is almost just as close going into the last month of the 2018 season.

The battle for the 3rd place between these two ICL teams has been even more eventful than the race for the 1st place, as the 2018 leaderboard is showing. The Florida team was far behind after a slow start in January and reduced the 31-point deficit month by month between February and May.

Only three points separated the two teams at the end of May, and the NWSL competitors picked up the pace again when Florida was almost back on level. The NWSL lead was back to 39 points two months later, and the iFLY Seattle team even outscored Hurricane Factory and Paraclete XP in July.

However, a slow month followed the NWSL highscore of the 2018 season, and iFLY Tampa was able to get closer again. The Florida team finally posted its highest total of the year in November, and the current 21-point difference is at least not out of range to reach the ICL team on the west coast with another highscore for December.

The indoor duel between Northwest and Florida Skydiving League is the oldest one of the Indoor Cloud League competition and began between iFLY Seattle and a Florida team at SkyVenture Orlando in 2012. The Northwest team is still competing at iFLY Seattle, while the Florida teams and competitors are now performing their ICL 14+ sequences at iFLY Tampa.

Florida generated this year's highest total of 122 points with two events in November, and teams at both FSL Tunnel Kickers were able to contribute to the record number. Arizona Airspeed's team captain Niklas Hemlin played a significant role in the successful Indoor Cloud League month.

ICL organizer Amer Kassas had invited him for all three November events, including the NSL Ultimate 4-way Championship 2018, where he was player coaching together with his team mates Ari Perelman and Mikhail Markine. Amer Kassas' efforts obviously paid back, not only with the new ICL record total in November.

Niklas Hemlin hardly left the flying chamber during his visits at iFLY Tampa in his effort to fly with as many participants as possible, and November had also record participation at the FSL Tunnel Kickers.

iFLY Tampa - Best of November

iFLY Seattle's November team
In the meantime, there has also been a change in the ICL Seattle team. Deb Correia, who launched her NWSL indoor team project and the duel with Florida in 2012, has handed over the reigns of the Indoor Cloud League events to Seattle Swift member Djordje Mandaric.

Deb Correia has prepared the transition carefully. She has been sharing the management responsibilities with Djordje Mandaric for a while, after he and his team members participated at the ICL events. Seattle Swift have posted many scores for iFLY Seattle on the ICL leaderboard in the past years.

Deb Correia said that she is now looking forward to just being able to show up and help with coaching.

Djordje Mandaric and his Seattle Swift team mate Dmitry Rudchenko were in the November lineups for three of the posted scores. Now they will have to hold off the Florida charge in December. Amer Kassas and his Florida ICL team need a total of 21 points higher than the Northwest team in December for a tie, and 22 points to win...
