Twelve teams. That's a healthy number of participants. Some good routines.

I’m a big fan of CVF, their style and choreography leaves me excited. :)

While Start’Air may have outflown everyone else pound for pound, they’re still reminiscent to me of Cutting Edge in 2006 (1st place) - I like the six kites and more complex maneuvers flown by CVF.
