I support the idea of mainly online, but a planned offline method. A funnel
is easy browse, and easier to vote compared to a solution built on google

Personally I think most of the folks who come with have a smartphone to
check the funnel without wifi or will be with someone who can do that or in
the worst case find someone who can do that for them. We can have a machine
near regn desk providing access to funnel to check schedule if required,
