    i appreciated for organizing such program which would definitely preserve and promote our culture and tradition. i would like to acknowledge to one who coordinated this program. but in order to maintain pure and unique identity of our tradition, i would remain here some recommendation:
    1. the arrow should be used made up of pure bamboo and feather
    2. likewise the bow should also use only bamboo, instead of using the bow with attach of wood in the middle.
    This is reminding for the organizer, because during the Yangphel Archery tournament such equipments are not allow to use. hopefully, in future the organizer would take this initiative.
