The day was mostly used to collect footage and information on a new computer, while it ended with a unique spectacle that was only indirectly a part of the competition. Skydive Arizona founder and owner Larry Hill was at the competition site and activated his DC3 and Twin Beech for a celebration jump.
Airspeed legends Craig Girard, Dan BC and Niklas Hemlin organized a load of mostly AAA Class competitors to build a larger formation from the two legendary jump planes. Footage of this jump will follow at a later time, together with more NSL Talk and evaluations of the competition.
A total of 12 teams competed live at Skydive Arizona, and the NSL leaderboard has integrated the three 4-way Advanced Class teams on the AAA Class leaderboard.

The difference between Arizona Airspeed and SDC Rhythm XP was only two points for the second half of the meet, even though the meet average of the competition was still significantly higher compared to the NSL Cloud Mondial 2020. Airspeed won by 17 points on their home turf and allowed Rhythm the highest score in only one round.
XPG4 reduced the difference to Bullet to three points and finished with an impressive 18.3 average that Kirk Verner had expected. SDC RhEvolution XP's new lineup won the Advanced Class competition with almost exactly the same average as at the USPA Nationals 2019.
The five AAA Class teams who participated at NSL Cloud Mondial 2020 and 4-Way FS Skydiving Championships both may now have a good idea of their current performance level. The combination of an extremely slow competition draw with the fast one this weekend creates an average number that is probably quite realistic at this point in time...
