Did You Know...... that Deb Correia can be proud of July's Northwest Skydiving League group at iFLY Seattle?
Florida Indoor Cloud League competitors at iFLY Orlando last Thursday
She said that the Seattle coaches were unable to synchronize their schedules to put on an event for July, and they decided to take a break. However, this did not deter the group. NWSL and Indoor Cloud League competitor Bill Selig scheduled two flying sessions and recruited the participants for the events.
Bill Selig and Matthias Kaminski organised both events and the lineups and turned in scores for all six categories. Deb Correia said that she was very happy to see this happen: "It is so great to see people stepping up. It will allow this event to continue to grow, and the group should be very proud of the scores they turned in!"

Modified DeLand Aurai lineup
