Words cannot express how grateful I am to be able to lead such a wonderful team. The final results (fantastic as they were) almost became secondary compared to the spirit, camaraderie, discipline and sportsmanship we showed the 20,000+ people at Stanley. Everyone I met yesterday, from fierce competitors to seasoned dragon boat veterans, all complimented on how superbly we carried ourselves. The spirit of DBS is alive and well. (We even appeared on TV!!)

A quick summary of the results:
· Men’s B Gold Cup – 1st Runner Up
· Men’s B Plate – 1st Runner Up (by the slightest margin of 0.01s)

So many people whose help we are indebted to:

· Headmaster Ronnie Cheng (83), for his message of support. It was most encouraging and uplifting to read that first thing in the morning.
· Joe Chan (88) and his wife Charmaine, for making us the best burgers and hot dogs. Joe and his team had to carry all the food and equipment on and off the junk. We need to better coordinate to help next time.
· Rahman (71), for his inspiring pep talk before the finals. It’s invaluable to have a senior old boy sharing his stories in time we need inspiration most.
· Jason Chiu (Mr. President, 88), for his unwavering support, both in his capacity in DSOBA, but more importantly, his personal commitment to be physically there with us.
· Felix Chiu (99) and Brian Chu (87), our in-house photographers. You are our official scribes, recording the history of DBS dragon boat, picture by picture.
· Daniel Ma (76), John Low (82) and Keith Chiu (87), for coming down to support us. There are other old boys who were also there but whose names escape me right now. Our thanks go to them nevertheless.

Headmaster Ronnie Cheng’s Global Tour

Dear Brothers of DBS. We have exciting news for you! Our Headmaster Ronnie will be visiting San Francisco, Vancouver and Toronto, meeting local DSOBA members and former teachers from July 18- 25, 2013. Gala Dinners will be held in all three cities hosted by each local Chapter. This is the first of many Global Tours organised by the DSOBA for our Headmaster to meet offshore Old Boys and to perpetuate DBS fraternities worldwide. It is also intended to be one of the key programmes to kick off the celebration of DBS 145th Anniversary in 2014.

Do not miss these dates to say Hello to our Headmaster ... and do come to join the Fun & the Spirit of our beloved DBS. Looking forward to see you All this July.

Dear All,

The DSOBA dragonboat team will be sending two boats again to Stanley International Dragonboat Championships on Tuen Ng Festival this year, on the 12th June 2013.

As usual, all Old Boys and their families are urged and invited to support us at this very prominent and entertaining event. Not only will there be over 40 crew members sporting our uniform on the seas, but well over half-a-decade's DBS boys will be represented. In addition to the beach-side marquees, we have chartered a pleasure cruise, for refreshments, relaxation and recovery between races.

All visiting Old Boys and adult friends will be charged a very reasonable HK$150 each, and children between 3 and 12 will be charged HK$80. There will be ferrying services from the beach to our Cruise, which will be anchored nearby from sunrise to sunset.

Last year we impressed all at Stanley with our crew's paddling, our Old Boys' support and everyone's spirit. This year we must do better and ram home the message - "DBS Best of the Best".

Please contact Sonia Huen or Maggie Ho ( 2713-5268 ) for enquiries and email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to reserve your seat(s). Please make your cheque payable to “Diocesan School Old Boys’ Association Ltd” and send it to 131 Argyle Street, Mongkok, Kowloon or pay into DSOBA bank account (HSBC A/C No.111-170312-001).

Paddles Up!
