OALM Dues from Doubleknot

As receipts are in one system and member data in another, with no connection between, copy and paste is the order of the day.  The first column has the LodgeMaster ID.  Copy each one, and paste it into the corresponding field to retrieve the details.





Then, in the details record, change the paid date to the actual one.



Finally, fill in the receipt number.  The above record shows "GT" for Golden Ticket, meaning that person has an annual pass.

Nentico 2013 JTE wizardry

OA LodgeMaster JTE (Journey to Excellence) Wizard screens


1 Through 23, with a couple repeats due to window sizing.

Once the wizard work is completed and the JTE submitted, I can't bring these screens up again.  I don't have a way to view the stored data records, meaning these shots are the record of what went into the 2013 recharter.

"Till next year."

Bengies Top Ten 2013


Continuing an unbroken streak, more movie reviews - seen at The Bengies this year.

Last year(s) - 2012 / / 2011 / / 2010

My rules are to only pick movies that I saw at the Bengies, in whole or in part (trailers-only does not count). The marquee shots are not always from the same weekend I saw each flick, plus a couple of these I saw more than once, or twice.

1.  Despicable Me 2
2.  Star Trek Into Darkness
3.  Gravity
4.  42
5.  Thor The Dark World
6.  We're The Millers
7.  Planes
8.  Enders Game
9.  Man Of Steel
10.  The Lone Ranger / Iron Man 3 / Monsters University

Second Billing:

Recommended, even if they did not reach the top ten this year. Another shuffle play would give a different order most likely.

11.  Red 2
12.  Now You See Me
13.  Pacific Rim

SPECIAL MENTION  - THE SECOND ANNUAL SCOUTS BENGIES CAMPIN

Three great movies, and good weather, made this a fun event for Scouts and parents and siblings.



HONORABLE MENTION - 1980's GHOSTBUSTERs




DIGITAL CONVERSION 06-JUN-2013


A landmark change for the Bengies, moving from 35mm film to digital projection. I was worried about the image, but after seeing Star Trek with the new format, I am convinced this was the right change to make.  Better than ever!

All shots rejected twice for inclusion in Google Earth, mostly due to too much "mirror" or car parts in the image.  They could/should be cropped for retry.

More later.
