Gung HAGGIS Fat Choy dragon boat team is very multicultural, and very community-minded. The team began in 1997 under the name Celebration Team, and was renamed Gung HAGGIS Fat Choy in 2002, named after the Gung Haggis Fat Choy Robbie Burns Chinese New Year Dinner event, that had its first public dinner in 1998.
This year’s team has members with origins from around the world, as well as multiple generations in Canada. But our parade dragon has been especially busy in 2013. In June, we might make an appearance at the Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival, as well as the On the Edge International Conference for Scottish and Irish Studies.
