A common balloon competition event is the “Hare and Hound” race.  The “hare” balloon takes off in advance of the “hound” balloons and flies at different altitudes to make it more challenging for the “hound” balloons to follow its path.  As an additional part of the challenge, the “hound” balloons drop a weighted marker on a target cross with the closest marker winning a prize.
