June 16, 2010

Galaxy Entertainment Group (“GEG”) comes in first-class at the “2010 Macau International Dragon Boat Races”. Having entered five exceptional Galaxy Dragon Boat Teams in this year’s races, GEG’s Galaxy Dragon Boat Teams won seven awards during the three-day race period.

The two Galaxy Dragon Boat Teams – “Galaxy Stars” and “Galaxy Pearl”, met their toughest rivals on Wednesday, at the “2010 Macau International Invitational Dragon Boat Races (500m)” “Open” and “Women’s” category events. Competing against several national teams and professional athletes from various athletic clubs and dragon boat associations, the two highly confident teams outperformed their competition and entered into the Grand Finals. Competing against international teams, both “Galaxy Stars” and “Galaxy Pearl” achieved sixth place and created pride for GEG.

On Wednesday morning, GEG’s members and executives including Mr. Michael Mecca, President and Chief Operating Officer of Galaxy Entertainment Group and Ms. Eileen Lui, Director of Human Resources and Administration of Galaxy Entertainment Group, represented the GEG family in giving the dragon boat team members a specially designed gold flag. Filled with GEG’s executives and members’ signatures, handwritten encouragements, and a printed message that reads “Together, We Achieve”, the dragon boat teams felt encouraged by GEG’s family support.

Mr. Francis Lui, Deputy Chairman of Galaxy Entertainment Group also attended the race to cheer for GEG’s dragon boat teams. Joining GEG members at the spectators’ stand, Mr. Lui waved his small Galaxy Dragon Boat Team supporter’s flag in support of the teams. The races were intensive, with many GEG members gathered at Nam Van Lake to cheer for the teams and create excitement for the spectators.

Following the awards presentation ceremony, Mr. Tyson Hoi, Team Captain of the dragon boat teams and pit manager of StarWorld Casino, represented the dragon boat team members in thanking the GEG family for their care and support. “This is the first time that both our men’s and women’s teams qualify for the Grand Finals and competes against the international teams. It is a great opportunity and we have achieved outstanding results. On behalf of the entire dragon boat team, I would like to thank GEG and all our colleagues for the encouragement and support. Our team will continue to do our best and next year, we will strive for even better results. Indeed, training does drain a lot of our physical and mental energy, but this is what makes everything worthwhile – seeing our colleagues here and knowing that they acknowledge and support us,” said Mr. Hoi.
