The Peak is set to be overrun with sedan chairs and silly costumes on Saturday, as 35 teams compete in a fun race to raise money for charity. The 24th annual Matilda Bazaar and Sedan Chair Race, which will get underway at Matilda Hospital at 10.30 am, collected more than $2.2 million last year. Organisers hope to hit the $3 million mark this year. The teams will compete over 3.2 kilometres (course A) or 2.1 kilometres (course B), with competitors in both categories starting and finishing at the hospital on the Peak. A number of schools will be participating for the first time over the B course. Under the rules, each team comprising eight members will transport a sedan chair around the course. In the case of the men, it must contain a passenger who must be 'over 16 years of age, alive and human'. The women, however, are allowed to carry a dummy weighing not less than 11.3 kilograms. Besides trophies for the fastest teams to complete the two courses, there is a women's team prize and a veterans' prize. There will also be trophies for the best-decorated chair, the team which raises the most money, the team which provides the most entertainment to the public and the team which breaks a record. The fastest school team and the school team which raises the most money will also receive trophies. At the bazaar, there will be stalls selling a variety of merchandise, including clothing, wine, books, toys, plants, Christmas cards, home-made cakes, and other foodstuff. A special children's bazaar - with a space theme - will offer a wide range of activities. The youngsters will be entertained by spacemen, Martians, magicians, a treasure hunt, a puppet show, drawing contests, arts and crafts activities, and many other games of skill.
