Time running out for bun scrambling competition entrants

According to this press release, submission of entries closes on 4 April for those wishing to take part in the "bun scrambling competition" on 5-6 May, 2006 at Pak Tai Temple Playground soccer pitch, Cheung Chau.
Jointly organised by the Hong Kong Cheung Chau Bun Festival Committee and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the "2006 Bun Carnival" will be staged from 22 April to 6 May 2006 at the soccer pitch of Pak Tai Temple Playground, Cheung Chau.
The event is presented in association with the Cheung Chau Wai Chiu County Association Limited, the Cheung Chau Rural Committee, the Islands District Office of the Home Affairs Department and the Hong Kong Mountaineering Union, and sponsored by the Islands District Council and 3D-GOLD Jewellery.
Three-d gold? Is this the Bun Festival goes bling? Stay tuned. Amateur scramblers should take heed, however:
Selected applicants must complete the safety training sessions provided by the Hong Kong Mountaineering Union on April 22 and 23 on bun tower climbing and accident prevention.
Hong Kong Mountaineering Union? What's the betting they'll be handing out an engraved certificate for those who have successfully completed the 'bun tower climbing and accident prevention course'? Stage One -- the "bun scrambler" enrolment form: Leisure and Cultural Services
