Gung Haggis Fat Choy goes to Victoria BC
The Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team went to the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival for August 19/20 and raced with The Pirates Dragon Boat Team.
Toddish McWong also hosted a mini Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner for 3 dragon boat teams in Victoria at the Golden City Restaurant near Victoria's historic Chinatown on Fisgard St.
There was the usual singing of “When Asian Eyes Are Smiling” but with a new chorus of “When Dragon Eyes Are Smiling.” The Adress to the Haggis was great and exciting. And there was an impromptu haggis eating contest between to paddlers from San Francisco.
The Pirates/Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team placed 5th in the Bronze division consolation final. Todd steered for the DieselFish dragon boat team from San Francisco – finishing 1st in the Jade division consolation final.
Congratulations to all the paddlers! Showing their Gung Haggis and Pirates spirit.
