By the time Diwata ng Lahi arrives Butuan on November 27, 2009 Mr. Jody Navarra of the Butuan Boat Building Committee said, Art Valdez will officially announce who made it as crew members of Butuan Balangay crew.
He added, “There would be high possibility that Butuan Balangay Crew composed of only 4 namely, Toto and Nico Calo, Lemzar Manginsay and Sato Raypon will be accepted. However, Art Valdez might also decide not to choose any of them.”
If this happens, Valdez will be dividing the core crew, Badjao Group, Philippine Coast Guard and the navy to sail the Diwata ng Lahi and Butuan Balangay
Nevertheless, Butuanons were optimistic all 4 will be accepted. (photo by Sato Raypon)
