The Florida Skydiving League group came together for the second indoor meeting this month at iFLY Orlando on Wednesday evening. The first scores from iFLY Orlando were posted after the FSL Tunnel Kicker on January 13th, and only one of the older scores made it through last night's flying sessions.
The first 19-pointer for the AA Class sequence (J-D-Q-6) was posted by Gilles Dutrisac, Robert Chromy, Hal Spence and Kurt Gaebel at the first indoor meeting. The complete DeLand DeLand lineup (Hal Spence - Point, Jim Prochaska - Center Outside, Mitch Wentworth - Tail, Kurt Gaebel - Center Inside) tried to improve the earlier result and ended up with a 19-pointer, as well.
The Sun Path Products NSL News reported after the first iFLY Orlando session on January 13th that Rookie Class team ZEUS from Skydive City had moved up into the Rookie AA Class and posted 21 points for Florida. It was not the last ZEUS word for the month, and three team members joined forces with Robert Chromy for a 24-pointer.
The ZEUS scores still did not make it to the ICL leaderboard this time since Bonnie Young, Don Hickey, Hal Spence and Mitch Wentworth managed to outscore the Z-Hills team with a score of 25 after three point deductions.

The second Rookie Class lineup consisted of Alix Raymond, Leslie Vath, Cathy Luo and Lisa Hickey, who came together for the first time at the training session earlier the same evening. This lineup enjoyed the ICL night at iFLY Orlando so much that they decided to stay together and launch a team project: Aurai DeLand.
Robert Chromy was helping Aurai DeLand to take the first steps in 4way competition, and the team is now making plans for the 2014 season. Aurai DeLand did not get their scores posted on the leaderboard this time, however, there will probably be serious competition very soon for Rookie Class team ZEUS from Skydive City...
