Did You Know...

... that a combination of DeLand and Z-Hills competitors lifted iFLY Orlando to the top?

   
    Thursday's Florida Skydiving League group at iFLY Orlando
posted Jun 29th, 2014 - The group of teams and competitors of the Florida Skydiving League and other new skydivers and indoor flyers, who compete for iFLY Orlando at the Indoor Cloud League, have become used to going back to the 12-foot flying chamber with the mission to improve their scores.

The Indoor Cloud League competition has been tough from the beginning of the project when only the groups from the Northwest Skydiving League at iFLY Seattle and the Florida Skydiving League at iFLY Orlando challenged each other in monthly duels.

However, it became much more competitive when the Czech teams at the Skydive Arena in Prague and the new group of the Northern California Skydiving League at iFLY SF Bay joined the Indoor Cloud League. Northwest and Florida both have found themselves behind with a significant distance on a regular basis.

Back in action: Gilles Dutrisac (2nd from right)    
It was the same situation when the Florida Skydiving League group met for the second time in June at iFLY Orlando. The first group had collected a total of 96 ICL points and was 18 points behind iFLY SF Bay when the first June scores were posted, as the Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 22 June 2014. Northern California added four more points later, and the difference had grown to 22 points.

Florida was under even more pressure before the next FSL Tunnel Kicker at iFLY Orlando when the scores of the Czech Republic Skydiving League teams were posted a few days before Northern California matched the Czech total of 118 points on the top of the leaderboard.

Fortunately, player coach Gilles Dutrisac was back in town after missing the earlier FSL June meeting at iFLY Orlando. He could strengthen the AAA and AA Class lineups who both improved their scores by a total of six points.

    Outdoor and indoor for Florida: DeLand Aurai
Despite Gilles Dutrisac's support for the AAA and AA Class lineups, the Florida group has not been using player coaches for the lineups in the other catgories any longer as much as when their support was necessary in the earlier days of the Indoor Cloud League competition. In fact, all other lineups last Thursday night were on their own in the flying chamber.

Rookie Class team DeLand Aurai had more support this time in the three Rookie Class categories after bailing out the Florida group with three scores at the previous NSL Tunnel Kicker at iFLY Orlando. Aurai only had to improve their own Rookie AA Class score (16 - 23) to contribute seven points to the new June total.

DeLand Aurai had just competed at the June meet of the Florida Skydiving League on the previous weekend and after the first session of this month's FSL Tunnel Kicker. The Rookie Class team had improved their outdoor scores, as well (4.8 - 7.0) and was ready to follow up for iFLY Orlando's Indoor Cloud League account.

A Class combination from Z-Hills and Florida    
Other first-time ICL competitors also contributed in the Rookie Class categories, while the A Class lineup eventually topped the Florida performance last Thursday.

Zunday members Keith Murray and Jon Agar had just returned from their team's indoor training camp at Paraclete XP's 16-foot chamber last weekend, but they were still ready for the A Class sequence in iFLY Orlando's 12-foot chamber. Jim Prochaska and Hal Spence completed the lineup. They both had competed for DeLand DeLand at the FSL June meet, while Zunday was training at Paraclete.

The joint effort of DeLand and Z-Hills competitors was very successful, as the A Class lineup added ten points (13 - 23) to the iFLY Orlando account and lifted the Florida group eventually to the top spot. It's not over yet though, as other groups have not posted their scores yet, including April winner iFLY Seattle...
