Did you know that Jan Klapka is dealing with a good problem to have in the Czech Republic?
posted: Jul 10th, 2014 Jan Klapka's Czech Republic Skydiving League group at the Skydive Arena in Prague was the 4th team that joined the Indoor Cloud League in June 2013 for the first time.

Did you know that Shinobi actually scored 20 points in the last three rounds?
posted: Jul 7th, 2014 The leaderboard of last weekend's international competition between teams in the Netherlands and Canada will require a few adjustments, due to the different numbers of rounds. However, only the A Class leaderboard of the Dutch Nationals 2014 alone is interesting enough after an unofficial adjustment.
The Sun Path Products NSL News mentioned yesterday that the three 0-pointers for Shinobi in the last three rounds were not caused by exit funnels, video malfunctions or missing the jump plane. Shinobi accepted the 0-pointers as the better choice than dropping completely off the leaderboard.
