Did You Know...

... that all Indoor Cloud League teams performed the same sequences in February?

Block 13 at Paraclete XP
posted Mar 12th, 2019 - February was a special month for the Indoor Cloud League. It was the first time that the six monthly sequences included the two new blocks (1, 13) after they got their final and official approval during the annual IPC plenary meeting in January.

Both blocks have been added to the Indoor Cloud League dive pool for all wind tunnels, including the 12-foot flying.

The February sequences for AAA and AA teams included both new blocks. The slot-switching sequence for the AAA Class teams had Block 1 (Molar - Molar) after the opening Donut, and Block 16 created the memory for the front piece at the end of the sequence. The AA Class teams had even both new blocks in their sequence, with Block 13 (Mixed Accordian - Mixed Accordian) at the end.

The immediate introduction of the new blocks in the February sequences of the Indoor Cloud League received positive feedback, as the ICL teams and competitors enjoyed the opportunity to practice the new techniques and collect the first experiences in a meet environment. Blocks 1 and 13 will probably be used more frequently than the other returning blocks in the first months of the 2019 season.

It also happened in February that the combination of the new blocks and the rest of the dive pool created sequences that could be used by all Indoor Cloud League teams in all different flying chambers. The currently participating teams are performing the monthly sequences in a 16-foot chamber (Paraclete XP), several 14-foot chambers, and a few 12-foot chambers.

The three Rookie Class sequences (RRR - RR - R) are always identical, while the AAA/AA/A sequences are usually different, depending on the size of the host's flying chamber.

As a result of the February sequences with the two new and two old 12+ blocks, and identical random formations, the scores and videos of all participating ICL teams could be posted on the same leaderboard. This combined February leaderboard actually resembled the very beginnings of the Indoor Cloud League, when each monthly draw was tailored towards the 12-foot flying chambers.

The increasing number of participating 14-foot wind tunnels and teams eventually lead to the separation of the dive pools and the creation of two separate ICL leaderboards.

Rookie Class competitors with player coaches at iFLY SF Bay
Lori Connor reported from iFLY SF Bay in Northern California that her Indoor Cloud League team has recently been focusing on the grass root flying level, where the three Rookie Class categories offer the 4-way entry level. She still had the experienced Cali4nia Raptors taking on the AAA/AA sequences with the new blocks, while all team members also helped the beginners in the sport as player coaches for the Rookie Class sequences.

Kyle Hermberg's iFLY Dallas team included several new ICL participants, as well, and Dallas 350 member Lucas King was back as a player coach.

iFLY SF Bay and iFLY Dallas are usually separated on the two different leaderboards and shared the one in February this time. The 12-foot team from Northern California won over the 14-foot team from Texas. The situation was the same in Florida, where iFLY Orlando's 12-foot team outscored the 14-foot team of iFLY Tampa by six points.

The March sequences bring the ICL teams back to their separate leaderboards...
