NCSL Director Lori Connor had her group perform the sequences at the end of April, which is the most important requirement to get them onto the ICL leaderboard, even if they are submitted later.
The NCSL group also added a new highscore for one of the six sequences. Don Burnette, Baat Enosh, Deanna and Julius Frank outscored the other four AAA Class lineups with a 21-pointer. It was the first time this year that any AAA Class lineup outscored the national 4way team of the Czech Republic, Bad Boys.

The Czech Bad Boys were outscored for the first time not only by iFLY SF Bay's AAA Class lineup in April. The Bad Boys also scored 22 points for the AA Class sequence at the Skydive Arena last month. However, Canada's family team 4astrophe won the AA Class competition with a 23-pointer, the only score for SkyVenture Montreal.
The Czech national team had an unfortunate start with the AA sequence (O,E,N,14) for May, as well, as the Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 6 May 2014. The first posted 16-pointer came after 12 point deductions.
The HF Chicks have blasted through the first four ICL categories and have to compete in the AA Class from here on, according to the ICL rules. The AA Class sequences of the Indoor Cloud League could usually also be drawn for any AAA Class competition, which causes an interesting situation in the Czech Republic.
The Bad Boys will now be pushed in this category by the indoor experts in the HF Chicks all-female lineup. The Czech national team came back quickly and strongly with the 26-pointer over the 20-pointer of the HF Chicks.
