Flexing our muscles at Sedan Chair
On Sunday, May 20th, PUYO competed in the Remington Markham Sedan Chair Challenge 2012 at MCC! The event consisted of sedan chair races, a parade, a carnival and a grand fireworks show. Our PUYOers also set up a Ping Pong Toss game booth at the event, attracting adults and kids alike. This year, our Communications Director Cheryl Ng, was carried during the 1.5 km race by Soojeong Choe, Ronald Liu, John Yeung, Alex Yeung, Nick Hung, Jason Sekiguchi, Adrian Avendano, Kyle Tan and Tian Hu. After the race, our PUYOers enjoyed some more bonding time while looking at wonderful fireworks show together. Special thanks to: Tian Hu for bringing together the event, and Renee Hung, Franca Tam, Yitong Hu, Ruby Huang, Angela Li, Jenny Su, Hillary Hung, and Rosana Zeng for manning the booth!
