Yes, that's sort of the point I was trying to make but you've summarised it better than I did. When I'm OOD at the club (I've done PRO at big events like Inlands, agree they are different and can see the value of tech more) I do loads of different things. Writing the results up for 10 boats isn't difficult, and I can't get too excited at tech saving me some of the 5 or 10 minutes that might take.  And someone telling me my life will improve due to some results programme brings out the cynical senior IT exec in me, as it reminds me of the snake oil I get from IT vendors in the day job !   IT needs to meet a business need otherwise it's just tech for someone to play with, and frankly it's not a business need I have as an OOD at my small SC.
