Gung Haggis dragon boat team update & future events

Congratulations on a great Wednesday practice
in the infamous “teak” dragon boats. Very historically significant – as
these boats are the ones that started dragon boat racing in 1986, when
they were donated by the Hong Kong Tourism Bureau for Expo 86… and
the rest is history… oh – and lovingly restored by Bob Brinson!

And finally…
Congratulations to Dan Seto for
organizing a GREAT BBQ at Spanish Banks last Sunday on the Long
Weekend. Wonderful kudos to Keng and Gerard for helping out and minding
