It was a very close call though. Deb Correia's Northwest group at iFLY Seattle could have matched the FL score or outscored it without missing the points for the AAA Class. Florida was 17 points ahead with scores for all six categories, while the Northwest did not have a AAA Class lineup available last month. A 17-pointer was surely not out of reach, as the other AAA Class scores from SkyVenture New Hampshire and Sportflight in Prague are showing.
June was the first month that four groups participated in the Indoor Cloud League, as the Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 29 June 2013. However, only SkyVenture New Hampshire and iFLY Orlando had scores for all six categories and benefitted with the higher final rankings.

Sinner G - AA Class
Sinner G - A Class
Sinner G competed in the AA and A Class and posted the highest scores in both categories. Not only the numbers are impressive - the videos also show excellent and impressive flying performances.
The young NWSL team has stepped up the performance level significantly after finishing with a 7.8 average at the NSL Championship of SkyQuest 2012. Sinner G has a lineup of six team members who take turns training on a regular basis at iFLY Seattle.

The big event was held on June 26, as Deb Correia explained: "We had 12 participants, which broke out into five groups, and we flew for an hour with coaches David Zhang, Carolyn Chow, Jason Salameh and myself. We had two participants who had never flown with us before, Monika Aikins and D'Arcy Kaaua. They both did a great job and are enthused to come back for the next round."
Deb Correia added that some freeflyers were also attracted to the event: "They participated together with a few other skydivers who no longer jump but are really enjoying to fly and be part of the skydiving family again."
The new sequences for the month of July are posted, and Florida has the first scoring numbers on the leaderboard. The videos will follow soon.
