Yes, I am addressing this as we speak^W write.

Both go hand in hand. Handing out tickets and asking people to
return them means we can resell them to achieve all of your points.

At the end of the week, we'll also have N tickets left over, and if
there are 350 people who received tickets and we said 320 would eat,
then if we only had 20 tickets left over would mean we'd have to pay
for 330. I think this might be an acceptable solution to the youth
hostel. I will ask.
