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!

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…
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.
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!
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…
This weekend we had the first game day of the (mixed) indoor championships, the youth indoor championships will be played over two days in January and today the subscriptions for the women indoor championships have opened.

In case you would like a quick overview of all championship results for the season 2015 – 2016.
The games have been played, the championships have been decided!
Many congratulations to Mooncatchers (BUIC) & Freezzz Beezzz Mixed (BUMIC) for prolonging their titles for another year. Gentleladies A prevents a total copy from last year by beating the 2015 champions in the finals and wins the BUWIC 2016.
Congratulations to Tabasco (BUIC), Flying Rabbits Sextons (BUMIC) & Flying Rabbits “Boy-Zone” for winning the Spirit prizes!
12 teams travelled to Tongeren to compete for 4 spots at the BUWIC play-offs in March… Gentleladies rocked the qualifiers with both their A-team & their B-team winning 4 out of 4 games… They go to the play-offs as teams to beat after winning their final seeding game on universe… Challengers in the play-offs will be Xelles (XLR8RS) and OneLUV (Jet Set).
The atmosphere at the Eburonsdome was wonderful, with a load of supporters to bring the ambiance – “You give the high pass and I give the low pass and I’ll take the footblock befooooore you…”…
Mooncatchers are taking the lead in the BUIC after winning 1st division on day 3. After Jet Set Open 1 winning it at day 1 and Freezzz Beezzz 1 at day 2 it promises to be a close call in the play-offs! Will there be a 4th team in the mix?
In the BUMIC the Flying Rabbits Lamplighters score 3 out of 3 and seem to become the top favorite to snatch this championship! However, they’re not invincible because they already lost a game against Jet Set Mixed on day 2… But Jet Set isn’t even sure for a spot in the play-offs yet! Diabolic Heaven Mixed, XLR8RS Mixed, Jet Set Mixed & ULB Team-E Mixed will be fighting a fierce battle for the last two play-off spots!
Results Day 4 (February 28th)
Mooncatchers have proven to be the Ultimate Junior team by winning each of the 3 age categories by beating Gentle 3-2 in the U14 division, Gentle again by 8-4 in the U17 division & Jet Set A-Team in the U19 division.
