Balloon Racing 2005
You'd never believe how far balloons will travel from Southport! For the past few years, balloon racing has been on the Southport Rotary Calendar - balloons carrying the hopes (and the name and address) of caring members of the public who willingly donate £s to good causes. Hopefully, some equally caring member of the public, as far away as possible, will find the balloon when it finally descends, and will send back the owner's ticket. The balloon which has travelled furthest wins a prize. The record? Somewhere in northern Germany. We disqualified the entry returned from Australia!
