Teams and competitors of the Florida Skydiving League came together at iFLY Orlando last Thursday to follow up with their first scores of the month. Florida had once again a slow start and is currently 18 points behind Northern California.
Northern California has the main advantage in the first two traditional categories (AAA - AA) where Florida could not keep up with the experienced lineups of player coaches from Northern California, and it was not much different in the A Class.

The Florida group at iFLY Orlando also had several new Indoor Cloud League competitors in the lineups for the Rookie Class categories, while other participants tested the waters of so far unknown sequences in new and higher categories.
There was also a highly experienced and famous new Indoor Cloud League competitor in two of last week's lineups. Rob Laidlaw, founder and president of Skydive University, came back to his Canadian 4way and 8way competition roots at his first FSL Tunnel Kicker.
Aurai had to replace new member Adam Money who was not available Thursday night, and Steve Hubbard took his tail slot. Aurai was able to outscore the Rookie Class lineups from Northern California in two of the three categories.
This weekend, the teams in Florida have to show their outdoor skills at the June meet of the Florida Skydiving League. Aurai will have Adam Money back in the lineup, and Steve Hubbard competes with Hal Spence, Jim Prochaska and Randy Cutlip. The outdoor opponents include the indoor group of the Northwest Skydiving League at iFLY Seattle...
