    patapos na ang tuna festival. hindi perpekto ang tuna festival natin kagaya ng ibang nagdaang festivals. maraming magbabatikos. may kanya-kanyang kuro-kuro. marami din namang magpapasalamat sa kagalakang dala ng 10th tuna festival. isantabi muna natin ito at magpasalamat tayo sa Panginoong Diyos at hindi tayo pinabayaan nitong nakaraang mga araw. bigyan natin ng parangal ang mga taong naging abala sa pamumuno ng festival. ang local government unit, ang gsc chamber, ang tuna festival council at ang iba’t ibang event managers na nagsumikap upang gawing matagumpay ang iba’t ibang aktibidades ngayong taon. congratulations kay kuya bebot haw. alam kong maraming gabing atubili ka sa pagtulog pero ngayon pa lang ay pinararangalan na kita sa masigasig mong pagpapatakbo bilang festival director. MABUHAY TAYONG LAHAT!
