xx BUK dragon boats to be used at the Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival

Quote from: Ann Phelps, General Manager, Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival
The Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival Society, producer of the Rio
Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival is pleased to announce that the 2012 dragon
boat races in Vancouver will be using an all BUK fleet of dragon boats.
³These boats are recognized throughout the world for their quality and great
handling, commented Greg Lamb, Race Director. Built to International
Racing Standard and IDBF approved, we are thrilled to be able to offer
participants of our events the best equipment in the world.

The recent BUK purchase has been made possible because of the generosity of
our long time supporter and sponsor, Terry Hui, President and CEO of Concord
Pacific Developments. Terry donated the boats in the name of Milton K. Wong,
founder of the dragon boat races in Vancouver, who recently passed away
 
Miltonıs vision and his ability to bring people together shaped numerous
Vancouver events and institutions. He balanced his ideals with actions. He
wanted Vancouver to become more of a multicultural city, so helped establish
the dragon boat festival and the Laurier Institution. He felt the arts were
the cornerstone of a city so helped fund Centre A, a gallery for
contemporary Asian art.  He felt strongly about social justice issues so
worked toward resolving native land claims. When cancer touched his family,
he invested in technologies and research to address the disease. He loved
talking about ideas, encouraging young people and tackling the big issues.

As a tribute to Milton the Canadian International Dragon Boat Festival
Society has developed the Milton K. Wong Legacy Project in his name. Terry
Hui has made a substantial contribution to the is project and we are very
grateful.
