The selection is now in full swing in South Africa where five teams compete for the national 4way title and the trip to the world meet in the Czech Republic in August. There is not much opposition for Savolo (Bailey Edmunds, Jnr, Alex Jordaan, Amy Kirtland, Andre van Heerden) who are far ahead of the other four teams after for completed rounds.
Savolo has also been on the national and international stage for a few years with different lineups. The team name appeared on the NSL leaderboard for the first time after the South African Nationals 2012, right behind Voodoo (16.4 - 14.7) in 2nd place. Savolo also competed later in 2012 at the iFLY Singapore indoor competition.

Alex Jordaan had his 4way beginnings in Georgia where he competed with GT Inviscid in 2004. He was with an indoor pickup team (Area 51) at the World Challenge 2009 and then competed with South Africa's team at the Dubai Cup 2010.
InTime owners Claire King and Dirk Venter were Alex Jordaan's team mates in Dubai. Dirk Venter and Alex Jordaan came back for the Dubai Cup 2011 competing once again for South Africa, this time with Anna-Marie Johnson and Bailey Edmunds Jnr.
Alex Jordaan's team mates of Dubai 2010, Claire King and Dirk Venter, are once again competing together at this year's national championships. They run the InTime scoring system and had provided their services at both events where Andre van Heerden competed with his Verve XP indoor team, Paraclete XP Indoor Championship 2014 and World Challenge 2014.
This week, they are competing for Jazz Republic and are currently in 2nd place after four completed rounds, while they work together to provide the meet scores.
