We raced for medals in the Rec B Finals – making 6th place.

Our path was paved with friendly rivalries, beating our friends Metro Vancouver 44 Cheeks in the morning semi-finals, and just one second ahead of our friends Flight Centre Dirty Oars in the Rec B Final.

Gung Haggis paddlers were seen sporting silver medals from the Senior B 49+ years age category race.  We put together Gung Haggis Friends including other paddlers from 44 Cheeks, Crusaders, Pirates, Ft. Langley and Swordfish + drummer from Killarney.  We were second to Masters of D'Zone who were 12 seconds ahead of us and a Comp A ranked team.

Other news:  The Killarney Cougar Dragons won Bronze medals in Junior C Division, coached by Gung Haggis paddlers Todd and Steven Wong.  Killarney's teacher sponsor is Gung Haggis alumni Stuart Mackinnon.

Congratulations to all racers!
