iFLY Orlando was in 2nd place in May behind the Skydive Arena with the teams and competitors from the Czech Republic. It was a successful effort for the Florida group, as three lineups (AA - Rookie AAA - Rookie AA) collected enough points to take the top spot on the leaderboard away from the Skydive Arena.
The Rookie AAA Class lineup (Gilles Dutrisac, Michael Patterson, Jairo Garcia, Seth Claytor) added two points to the iFLY Orlando account with the new 20-pointer. Three Zeus members (James Hopkins, Amer Kassas, Steve Hubbard) and Jim Prochaska had posted an 18-pointer for Florida before the new score of last week's event at iFLY Orlando.

Aurai member Lisa Hickey was not available, and Adam Money took her Tail slot. He had attended several previous FSL Tunnel Kickers before and helped to improve Florida's total by four points.
The 23-pointer after a point deduction was also the current highscore in the Rookie AA Class that Florida had shared with Northern California's lineup in this category until last week.

DeLand Aurai's additional four points and the other 2-point contribution by Florida's Rookie AAA Class lineup would have brought iFLY Orlando's account to a total of 129 points - one single point behind the Skydive Arena. The additional six points by Florida's AA Class lineup then pushed iFLY Orlando to the top position.
It's not over yet though. The Northwest Skydiving League group at iFLY Seattle is still processing footage of the May sequences and will submit videos and scores very soon. iFLY Seattle had outscored iFLY Orlando clearly in April and could still change the final rankings for May...
