  3. @Max: Thanks, I updated the list. @Arturas: I found [this document](http://www.frisbee.lv/sites/default/files/Latvijas_frisbija_cempionata_nolikums_2010.pdf) and retrieved [those results](http://ffindr.com/en/event/latvian-outdoor-championship), can you confirm that I understood correctly?
  4. I am from Lithuania as you know, so I am not sure, ask Martins Taurenis
  5. @ Christian Arturas is right regarding Latvian champions. The results You found are indoor 2008-09 results (and the web page of federation has been changed that`s why the outdoor results are not there). You can see results from [sports portal](http://sportacentrs.com/frisbijs/17082009-noticis_pirmais_latvijas_cempionats_ara_f)
  6. Ireland, Mixed: Throwin' Shapes (defended 2009 title)
  7. Hi Dominick, thanks for the information. One question though: the title has been won at the DUB tourney, is this something like the Irish Mixed championships? We are looking here for official (ok, the most official possible) champions and not necessarily the best team in a country/division. Merry Christmas and happy new year!
