The Mormon Tabernacle Choir in Salt Lake City had a pretty good system
for checking tickets: wireless bar code scanners. Can't be more
expensive than having somebody type in thousands of names, from barely
I did think of something like that; but then you'd have a queue at the
door as people scan their badges. Besides, there's a difference in
we do this three times a year, instead of every day (week?).
On the plus side, though, the scanner would record the time, and thereby
know what meeting you were there for, so you'd eliminate the failure
where the chair forgets to put the new box in place, and meeting A gets
the credit for everybody who went to meeting B.
It wouldn't have to be wireless, either; the scanner could be hooked to
old PC which would store the data on disk.
