Welcome to our guest, Stan Kiefer.
Stan has been a bass fisherman for quite some time and is considering joining the club. His sponsor is Ken Repine. Pete Potter reported that Dewayne Kimbro was quickly recovering from recent back surgery. Pete is also almost back to normal after some surgery of his own. Ken Repine recently purchased a laptop computer and suggested that the club try using it on a trial basis to keep the club records on. With the right applications, the weigh-ins and the posting of the results on the web page could be completed quicker. The current process is time intensive and prone to mistakes. Using a computer would not totally eliminate mistakes, but would make the needed calculations much quicker and easier. Discussion from the membership centered around the possibility of losing data if there were a failure of the computer, either at the weigh-in or during record manipulation. The club secretary, Kevin Simmons, stated that he would continue to keep paper records and enter the results in the computer during a trial period.
The club membership agreed.
