Seeking a navigation system among 200 individual / card DB for attendance at camp

You might want to start out with a simple text file database. Use a comma, a tab, or some other unused character to separate the fields. With "sort" and "repeat for each" you can find or arrange the data however you wish.

Hi LC Pros and the Rest of the world more experienced than me:

I am searching for a "navigation system" for my >200 card camp
attendance project. Pointers welcome.

I'll have 150 to 200 cards in a database of people (camper kids in
summer school, volunteers, staff). Each card has its card name set to
the person's name. Contact info, attendance, performance notes on the
main card in a main stack for each person.

One day I'd love to store the data elsewhere and have it run on iPhone
and Android, but first things first.

I'm wondering how to set up a navigation system for finding an
individual -- but also taking class role calls.

Popup buttons might get too crowded with too many names.

Should I do individual dynamic palettes on their own card(s) in sub-stacks?
