Hi everyone i'm keith and been fishing the derby since salmon arama was started, ("GO SALMON SLAMMERS") i only missed 3 years while i was over seas in the military, on saturday i registerd 2 fish and my brother registered 1 fish, i registered a 16lb king and a 10lb coho, the problem is, The Laptop, although it is the way of the future for instant access and input to the web, the problem is while calling out the type,length,and wieght, it has to be remebered to enter it, with multiple entries you have to remember all the entries as they are called out, they are not writing them down and do not have any back up paperwork, so if someone misses a fish for any reason there is nothing to look back on, the person wieghing the fish would have to re-wiegh it to be accurate, i am a victum of this problem and been told for days were looking into it, and yet from higher sources been told they are not going to do anything about it, the 10.1 coho i caught would be in 5th place at the time i write this, but worse under master angler if i catch alot smaller coho it hurts me that way too, i have witnesses that watched me register the fish and will verify the fish i registered , and salmon arama officials think that the person that is inputing the fish is incapable of a mistake, which there is only 1 conclusion, they think i am lying, it was a simple mistake that they will not admit even though i have witnesses and said i would take the polygraph, i have no recourse for this matter but your opionions, its a tuff job to remember tpye,length,and wieght of fish as they are called out, scrolling though your laptop to find the person, then type of fish, then add the length then add the wieght, exspecially if the person wieghing the fish doesn't take his time and starts wiehing them faster then you can input them, humans make errors but the offcials in this case are just protecting themselves, they made a mistake, and can't bring themselves to admit it, it will probably cost me a place in the standings, the system isn't perfect, and no one can remember type of fish,length and wieght fast enough to be accurate, they should write them down and hand the piece of paper to someone that has the time to input the information without having to rush, or remember what they have heard.
sorry i blew up
but the worst part is the conclusion.
either i'm lying with credible witnesses,
or they just simply can't admit an honest mistake
sad but true
