Oh yeah definitely
Too much work for that!
I keep a printed copy of contest logs as a back up

Hey Russ. I’m like you a belt and suspenders guy. I log to ACLog and to paper logs. The only thing I do not log to the paper log is contests. I just place a note in the paper log to look in ACLog for the contest contacts and import the logs. Old school I guess.

I actually double log. After it goes into N3FJP, it gets entered into ARRL Mini Log. I modify columns some and use the adjacent reverse side for comments.

The only problem has been that when I upload my log to Clublog, it protests the calls.
That will happen with any logging system setup for amateur radio. The MARS calls use a different format.
I have some old ARRL logbooks that I used before the advent of computer logs. I still have a few blank books. I simply use one of those books for anything out of the ordinary. I used it for this year's AFD QSOs. I use it for Shortwave stations I find interesting, etc., etc.
I'm glad I bought a bunch of those books when I placed my last order, but I'm always a bit surprised by the number of hams who still write down their QSOs. I'd have thought most everybody would be using logging programs by now, but that's not the case.
