Did you know that Arizona Airspeed have lost three of their last 107 competition rounds? posted: Feb 24th, 2024 The 4-way teams at the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2024 started the first day of the competition before the sunrise in Raeford. Kirk Verner launched the 4-way competition with a roll call for the teams in the meeting tent, and the first four AAA/Open Class teams entered the flying chamber after barely enough preparation time. The competition draw was published on the same Saturday morning, and the teams had to get ready quickly.
Arizona Airspeed, Golden Knights and SDC Rhythm XP were together in the second group of teams, and the NSL-TV camera captured the major upset in the first round.... (more)
Did you know that GKXP8 and Qatar Falcons switch back to indoor competition? posted: Feb 22nd, 2024 The Paraclete XP Indoor Championship was launched as a 4-way indoor competition in 2008, mostly with teams from North Carolina. The Paraclete XP home team won, with Andy Honigbaum, Kirk Verner, John and Tim D'Annunzio in the lineup.
There was no 8-way indoor competition in the world at that time, even though the windtunnel in Bedford had enough space with its 16-foot flying chamber. The annual World Challenge was only a 4-way competition, until Paul Mayer added 8-way to the event agenda in 2018.
Paraclete XP offered their first 8-way competition as a part of the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship... (more)
Did you know that the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship beats the Wind Games by ten 4-way teams? posted: Feb 20th, 2024 The NSL News reported on February 14th that the Wind Games were scheduled for the same weekend that the Paraclete XP Indoor Championship, including the U.S. indoor nationals, has been using for many years. The 2024 event, after the 8-way Hell Week and the following indoor 8-way competition, takes place as usual on the coming weekend, and the 37 teams at Paraclete XP win the participation contest over the 27 teams in Spain. Additional eleven 8-way teams are registered for this year's event in Paraclete XP's 16-foot flying chamber.
Both events together combine for a total of 64 teams competing... (more)
Did you know that half-year substitutes have worked well for U.S. national 4-way teams? posted: Feb 18th, 2024 The NSL News reported the recent personnel change for the U.S. national team in 4-way Women on February 16th. The update provided some details of new member Jennifer Davidson's career, which included the outdoor world championship title of 2016 in 4-way Women.
It is an interesting fact that Jennifer Davidson is the only XPG4 member who has won a gold medal in 4-way Women so far. It is very likely that the complete XPG4 lineup will be in possession of 4-way Women gold medals at the end of this year. However, it would be the first one for Michelle Karamon, Jeana Billings and Brenn Richards, even... (more)

Black Cat had finished in 3rd place at the Wind Games 2016, IFS-Moscow 6th in 2018 and 4th in 2020, the last event before the corona virus break. Arizona Airspeed placed 2nd in 2018, 3rd in 2019, 2nd in 2020, SDC Rhythm XP 5th in 2019 and 3rd in 2020.
The current lineup of the French national team in 4-way Open will... (more)
Did you know that Skywalkers Junior's Antonin Ondracek completed 30 meet rounds on Wednesday? posted: Feb 16th, 2024 The February competition of the Czech Tunnel League scrambled the top of the AAA Class leaderboard in a way that even league founder and 4-way competitor Jan Klapka has not seen in the past. No indoor event at the Hurricane Factory has ever featured four Czech world class teams competing for the top positions.
This combination of the same four teams is also a very colorful presentation of the progression that the Czech Republic has seen in the past years. Only one of the four teams, HF Cubs, consists of 4-way seniors, even though the Cubs are the indoor world champions in 4-way Junior of 2019.... (more)
