The start of an indoor season

As November nears, we can leave the BUMOC behind us and start preparing for the next championship: the BU(M)IC 2017 – 2018!

There will be 4 qualifying days involving 54 open & 32 mixed teams and a play-off day with the top 8 of each division competing for the championship crown. Will the Freezzz Beezzz repeat last years double? Will the Mooncatchers strike back with an all-moon Open final? Or will the Flying Rabbits take home their first championship victory? It looks to be a very promising indoor season!

Jet Set is the new Mixed Champion, Skywalkers win second division

Jet Set (Leuven) scored its biggest championship win yet! In a Belgian Mixed Outdoor championship with 28 teams, they have proven to be the best by beating the Flying Rabbits 14-9 in the finals. In a final where the intensity was high and the spectacle was a pleasure for the eyes, we saw two teams that played “mixed” as it’s supposed to be! Congratulations as well to the Flying Penguins that managed to come in third while only having 10 players during the tournament!

In second division Skywalkers took the price home by beating the Freezzz Beezzz in a tense final. They should be very proud, because they can broke the Beezzz-win-all-their-finals-in-2017-combo (BUIC, BUMIC, BUOC & BBC). Oufti-Blaireaux deserved their spot on the podium as well.

Spiritwise it looks to have been a very good tournament as well. In my opinion some of the spirit scores given were pretty high, but even taking this into consideration, the spirit champions were pretty clear. They were Freespect (Div 1) and White Foxes (Div 2).

BUMOC 2017 kicks off the 2017 – 2018 season!

Guess who’s back? Back again! Ultimate’s back, tell a friend!

This weekend the Belgian Ultimate Mixed Outdoor Championships 2017 are being played. 28 teams are competing in two divisions at the Blaarmeersen in Ghent. Who will take the crown?

Will Gentle COOP use the home advantage or will Jet Set spoil their fun? What about the Mooncatchers, whose mixed capabilities are still a big unknown? Will the Flying Rabbits score their first championship in their bid to become the world champions? Or will the Flying Penguins repeat their surprise victory of 2015?

Lots of questions, lots of excitement. Come to the Blaarmeersen and find out!

SCHEDULE & RESULTS

Gentleladies & Freezzz Beezzz, best of the best

After an intense weekend in the burning sun, the belgian outdoor champions for the season 2016 – 2017 are known.

The gentleladies made it 3 titles in a row after beating LUV in the finals. LUV only needs to wait one week to try and take revanche, because they will play each other once again at the regionals next weekend.

Both teams gathered the same spirit score, causing them to share this trophy (although I’m already on ordering a second one ;-))

In the Open Division, for the second year in a row the semis were the end station for the 1-seeds as Jet Set narrowly beat the Mooncatchers in the semis. With the Freezzz Beezzz also beating Gentle Open, we got a totally unexpected finals with Jet Set – Freezzz Beezzz.

In these finals the Freezzz Beezzz proved to be the strongest team in Belgium at the moment and they celebrated their second title in 3 years.

The spirit this year went to the Flying Rabbits once more. With Flying Rabbits Chips ending first in the sendings and the Flying Rabbts Fish following in fifth, the team of the Belgian spirit advisors proves their worth.


This concludes the Belgian Ultimate season 2016 – 2017. We’ll be back next year with what’s promising to be another magnificent season.

Conclusion of the Indoor Season

The indoor season has come to an end this weekend. 28 games were played last Sunday to decide which teams would become the 2016 – 2017 indoor champions…

CHAMPIONS
First championship was concluded with a game between Gentleladies and OneLUV. Gentleladies won the title with a 9 – 7 score an intense final.

Directly after the Freezzz Beezzz beat suprise finalist Full Moon 9 – 6 to take their first title of the year with them to Bruges.

No upsets on the way to the final game in the BUMIC. The two teams on top of the championship during the whole tournament meet each other once more in the finals. The Freezzz Beezzz Mixed once again beat the Flying Rabbits Blue (10 – 5) to take home their second title of the year and their 3rd consecutive title in the mixed division.

SPIRIT
All games have been played and been rated spirit-wise. LUV-U-2 (BUWIC), Jet Set Gold (BUIC) & OuftiMix (BUMIC) have proven over the last 4 months they master spirit of the game and are gracefully thanked for doing so!

I’ve grouped all final rankings (both games and spirit) at the BU(M/W)IC FINAL RESULTS to make it easy for you to find them.

A big thanks to everyone who played in the biggest ultimate indoor championships ever seen in Belgium.. An even bigger thanks to everyone who helped me in the organisation (communication responsibles, people who arranged the halls, …) I couldn’t have done it on my own!

 

Ultimate Leuven Minors (Jet Set) win BUYIC U17

The juniors of the Mooncatchers won all junior championships in 2016 and they already beat Jet Set ULM in the pool games 8-4, so they were odds on the clear favorites to win yet another junior championship.

However, it were the Jet Set Ultimate Leuven Minors that haven proven the Moon Juniors are not unbeatable by taking a clear 9-5 win in the finals and crowning themselves U17 champions.

The Gentle Torpedos take home the spirit price, by getting both first and second place in the rankings!

Congratulations to Jet Set ULM & Gentle Torpedos 1, a big thank you to all teams, coaches and the organisations. Next week there are two more junior championships with the U14 & the U11 divisions…
