Changlimithang Stadium 3 November 2012 The finals of the inter-high school traditional archery tournament was held today at the archery bachu at Changlimithang. The tournament was organized between the 6 higher secondary schools of Thimphu thromde. The winner was Motithang HSS and the runners-up was Kelki HSS. Pelkhil was represented by 9 students of class XI and XII.

It was a good effort though without any opportunity for practice, the standard was quite poor. The tournament was played with just two days’ notice from the thromde. Several rounds of the matches were played without a single karey. However, other ‘targets’, such as a dustbin 20m to the side of the bachu, a building roof top etc, were successfully hit. The audience (that always miraculously appears whenever a game of archery begins), was therefore kept well-entertained. We recommend more safety measures at the bachu.
