We still use paper signup sheets for diners to indicate that they are coming to the next cooked meal. That works well for our system, as the head cook uses that paper list for dinner prep purposes and then gives it to our Meals Accountant along with the receipts at the end for reimbursement. When I'm head cook I often give folks the option to email me; the occasional irritation with that is that they don't always supply all the information that they would on the paper sheet and you need to go back and forth with them.
