Archery: In an attempt to promote traditional archery in the country, the first traditional archery coaching camp for students began at the Changlimithang archery range in Thimphu yesterday.

The camp aims to introduce the art of traditional archery to children, including basic usage like handling traditional bows and arrows, safety measures, releasing of arrows and a brief history about archery, among others.

More than 100 students aged between seven and 15 from Thimphu are taking part in the five-day camp. The programme is organised by the Bhutan Indigenous Games and Sports Association (BIGSA) in collaboration with the labour ministry, Druk Green Power Corporation, Bhutan Power Corporation and Bank of Bhutan.
