Sad end to great spectacle

Dear Editor,

Re: Sad fautasi development 

How can the government spend hundreds of thousands on supporting a boxing match in another country, yet allow a much loved event with significant cultural importance to go the way of the dinosaurs?

If the government granted each competitor a reasonable sum of money for competing, that would ensure that maintenance and tech upgrades are covered, there would be far more entries and what is a great spectacle and source of regional pride would be a worthy event to showcase Samoa.

 S.P.
