hot air balloon

In one of his better moments, at the end of the concert, the compère at yesterday’s event was giving thanks to everyone who had contributed to the success of the event. He said

... to the people who flew the balloon overhead, ... to all of you who bought a raffle ticket with a 2 on it ...

The first part of that excerpt of thanks refers to the glorious hotair balloon pictured above. The second part refers to the fact that they drew a ticket with the number 2 on it in the raffle, and three or four people came forward with the matching ticket. Apparently the tickets weren’t all the same colour. Dark pink, light pink, orange, etc. The compère had wanted to deal with the embarrassment by offering additional prizes, but I think there was a shortage at that point. He resorted to microphone begging the organisers of the upcoming Farnborough Air Show to donate additional prizes (free entry for a family). Without apparent success, it should be added.
