Harmony Arts Festival: featuring Gung Haggis paddler Richard Montagna + The Paperboys

Richard Montagna
was our “official photographer” for the Gung Haggis Fat Choy
Robbie Burns Chinese New Year Dinner in January… as well, he is part
of this year's gold medal winning Gung Haggis dragon boat team in Vernon, where Richard's first dragon boat race was last year.  Interesting thing about Richard… he lived in China and taught english in Beijing.  While living in Alaska he ran sled dogs and organized Iditarod Tours.  On the drive back from Vernon a few days ago, we discovered that he has spent more time in China, than the 3 Chinese-Canadian paddlers riding with him, who were born in Vancouver, High River AB, and South Africa.
