Submitted by the Lamma Dragons.

Why join the Lamma Dragons?

"Because You're Awesome!"

(That's definitely a great title for an upcoming Lamma-zine story)

Results available so far, from Claudia:

"Lamma Dragons results
Women 6th cup final
Men 3rd cup final
Kids 4th final
Women 2nd 1000m
Men 2nd 1000m
Mixed 5th 1000m (I think)
Yeh!"


The Lamma Dragons Under 18s - The Next Generation - did really well again this year. Claudia, their "mentor" writes:

"Well done Lamma Dragons! You did so well yesterday.

A huge recovery after a slightly shaky first race to come just 3 secs behind the 1st place whose average age was probably 16-17 when ours was 12-13. You should be very proud!

The last race was out of our control everyone on the left got caught up in the flag and that's what lost us the 10ths of seconds we needed to hold that 3rd place. There was nothing we could do. It happens. All great experiences.

So back to practise on Sunday! Please keep the borrowed shirts safe I need to return those."

And who grabbed the fine opportunity to promote their new Lamma-brewed beer?

Yes, Yardley Brothers beer (available only at the Lamma 500 and in Brother's Store so far, I think).

Driving a dragonboat while under the influence might still be legal, but surely not conducive to winning.
Afterwards, it's a different matter and wildly celebrating the wins (and losses) is customary...

But the spectators were free, even encouraged, to imbibe before, during and after the race...

Lamma Barbarians and Librarians, take notice!
Big party at the Island Bar on Sat, June 6.

There must be a lot of you living on Lamma, as there's a special big party for you!
I might know a few barbarians here, but hardly any librarians? I got to attend this party to meet some of them!

I wonder what the Lamma Librarians think about the fancy new $50-million YSW Library being approved and built soon to replace the old one?

...plus a new cover shot of the Under 18 dragonboaters, by Claudia!
They're growing into a fit & fine team, eager and capable to surpass their parents and elders in winning trophies very soon, I'm sure!

Before this Saturday traditional Lamma Dragons fundraiser in The Island Bar, there's the Sok Kwu Wan dragonboat races tomorrow, Wed, June 3, 10:30am - 2:30pm.

Sorry, no English banner or poster or info at all, as this is a very local and traditional event. But it's probably the largest of Lamma's 5+ yearly dragonboat races, with the big fishing trawlers from Aberdeen coming in for the event. Great photo opportunities and lion/unicorn dances!

Tonight, Island Bar, yearly Lamma Dragons fundraiser!

Main auction item, Harry Harrison's party theme cartoon. Former auction records for these unique, once-a-year framed paintings have been set over $6K. Can it be beaten this year?

VIP photo page of Southside magazine, June issue, featuring the Lamma Dragons in the center of the page.
They'll race in Stanley and Discovery Bay, but not in Aberdeen on June 20.
