RUBC 40th Anniversary Dinner

Sithu U Tin, U Po Zon and U Tin Htoon compiled the RUBC history and records for the Commemorative Issue of the 40th Anniversary of the founding of RUBC. Several Old Members reviewed and provided feedback.

Citing security concerns, the Annual Regatta was cancelled by higher authorities.

Sithu U Tin gave the go ahead for the Annual Dinner to celebrate the 40th Anniversary at a hotel in Kandawgyi.

The President’s Challenge Cup (filled with cocktail) was passed around.

With the cool breeze, at least one attendee passed out before saying “Easy Oars”.
