Hey guys, thanks to everyone for coming. I'll post photos from the meetup once I get back from Toorcon. The speed picking contest results are:

1. Phaasit
2. Jeremy
3. Alex
4. NMI

We had a casual blind-picking competition in which Jeremy and David won their rounds. Congrats to everyone who participated, and don't fret if you didn't get any locks open. Keep practicing and remember to relax, focus, and most of all ease up on the tension wrench during a competition.

For now, tell me what YOU would like the topic of November's meeting to be. Tom suggested that we have a night where we all bring in locks that we can't pick and that I go over a variety of picking techniques and tricks to help you identify binding pins, setting pins properly, beating security pins, and so on. Once you master these techniques you should be able to consistently single-pin pick everything in the lock box in under 2 minutes.

For those attending, stop by the Lockpicking Village at Toorcon!

Thanks again,
