Did You Know...

... that Florida improved the Indoor Cloud League total for March by 16 points at iFLY Orlando?

   
    Florida's group on March 24th at iFLY Orlando
posted Mar 31st, 2014 - The Sun Path Products NSL News reported the first Indoor Cloud League scores for the month of March from iFLY Orlando on 16 March 2014.

Several updates followed from other participating groups until the introduction of iFLY Dallas was published with the latest scores on 28 March 2014.

March 31st is the last day of this month that a group can fly the six sequences and improve the scores.

The Florida group tried to do exactly that on March 24th and eventually added 16 points to the iFLY Orlando account by improving the scores in three categories (AA - A - Rookie AAA).

The additional 16 points did not lift Florida's total number of points for the month of March anywhere close to the top level, where the teams in the Czech Republic are almost performing in a league of their own at the Skydive Arena. However, Florida's March group at least matched the total of February, which had brought the 2nd place.

The internal competition in Florida between the three students from three different universities continued after the first meeting in March (Tim Parr, Brian Lipscomb - Embry-Riddle, Cathy Luo - University of Florida, Andrew Barton - DeLand Stetson), and Tim Parr and Andrew Barton made their first 4way experiences at iFLY Orlando this time.

They did not make it onto the ICL leaderboard, where Florida had already posted stronger scores at the previous March session in the lower Rookie Class categories.


   
    Florida's A Class lineup on March 24th
Embry-Riddle student Brian Lipscomb had full impact on Florida's total for March. He improved his own 27-pointer in the Rookie AAA Class from the first March meeting (Kurt Gaebel, Gilles Dutrisac, Steve Hubbard, Brian Lipscomb) to a 30-pointer with a new lineup (Brian Lipscomb, James Hall, Sebastian Jimenez, Steve Hubbard).

Then he also performed the AA Class sequence (K,F,E,15) for the first time and scored a very respectable 20-pointer with the same lineup. Florida's 24-pointer was scored by the lineup with the three player coaches (Kurt Gaebel, Robert Chromy, Gilles Dutrisac, Hal Spence), which added another four points to the iFLY Orlando account.

The remaining nine additional points came from the A Class sequence, where Florida had a 14-pointer on the scoreboard first. Gilles Dutrisac, Sebastian Jimenez, James Hall and Hal Spence turned this 14-pointer into a 23-pointer on March 24th at iFLY Orlando, which added enough points to tie Florida's total score of February. The remaining March scores and videos of the other ICL groups will still be added, and the new sequences for April will be posted tomorrow.
