Did You Know...... that DeLand 3D and DeLand Aurai competed for the first time?
Rookie Class teams from DeLand: Aurai and 3D
In the meantime, the Skydive Arena has taken back the Indoor Cloud League top spot for May. Jan Klapka replaced the unfortunate 16-pointer of his Bad Boys with a 20-pointer that the HF Chicks scored earlier for the AA Class sequence. The additional four points placed the Skydive Arena one point ahead of iFLY Orlando.
Two Rookie Class teams from Florida have only been competing for iFLY Orlando's Indoor Cloud League account so far. DeLand Aurai and DeLand 3D now both attended their first 4way outdoor competition this weekend.

DeLand Aurai had bad weather luck on their training weekends and did not have many outdoor jumps before their first 4way competition this weekend. They also had to replace Lisa Hickey on Sunday, after only one round on Saturday. However, alternate and Tunnel Kicker Adam Money, was available and filled the Tail slot for Sunday's three rounds.
Sunday's lineup with alternate Adam Money needed some time to learn the exits, even though the team members knew each other from the Indoor Cloud League and FSL Tunnel Kicker events. Exits and first pages with the subterminal air speed is still the biggest challenge in 4way competition and cannot be prepared for with indoor training.

The third Rookie Class team on this weekend's leaderboard of the Florida Skydiving League was a lineup from Skydive City who also competed for the first time at an FSL meet.
Where is J (Center Outside Earl Coggin, Tail Jim Prochaska, Center Inside Perry Sheldon, Point Steve Hubbard) was the only team in the A Class and has to wait until all scores of the weekend have been posted. A Class teams from the Czech Republic cannot help, as they will not be a part of the new overall leaderboard...
