Seven of the eight AAA Class teams that had competed at last year's Brazilian Indoor Nationals in December were back for the first of three meets of the new indoor league.
The Brazilian national 4-way team CTR Optimum won the 8-round competition in iFLY Sao Paulo's 12-foot flying chamber with exactly the same meet average (22.8) as in December last year. CTR Optimum is also the country's national outdoor team and had competed for Brazil at the FAI Outdoor World Meet 2018 in Australia.
It was not only CTR Optimum who matched their previous indoor average exactly last week. So Pressao had finished in 2nd place with a 19.9 average at the indoor nationals and copied the same number, as well. However, it was not good enough for the 2nd place this time, as Go Fly increased the scoring level from 19.8 in December to 21.3 last week and even began to put some pressure on the winner.

Harpia, who have posted scores on the Indoor Cloud League leaderboards several times, increased their indoor record average (17.5 - 19.1) as well and moved ahead of the all-female CTR Storm team. Harpia are now within striking distance of So Pressao in 3rd place. Harpia had visited Paraclete XP for the 2018 indoor championship, where Kirk Verner was the player coach for the Brazilian team.
So Pressao had launched their comeback after a 13-year break at last year's indoor championship at the same place in December and then followed up at the Wind Games at the end of January.
Harpia and So Pressao will both try to get to the 20+ average level next, which Go Fly has already left behind. The next opportunity is coming up at the next meet of the Brazilian Tunnel League that is scheduled for the end of June.
