We could instead use barcodes (which are already printed on the backs of 
the badges). I think this has worked fine, and has many advantages over 
written blue-sheets and announcing names, but I think barcodes probably 
solve the problem more simply and have less security concerns.

(I also agree that scanners for bluesheets belong at the door, not 
passed around.)

Announcing names is problematic because people speak them too fast, and 
spellings are tricky. Scanning is better.
