College of Lockpicking LockSport Lounge and Launch Party at #SXSW!!!
Wednesday, March 14, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (CDT)
The highly-anticipated College of Lockpicking Launch Party is here!
Having started our tour in Austin just this past July, the College of Lockpicking has since travelled across the country and around the world, bringing the joy of LockSport to hackerspaces and art-coops far and wide.
The College has come together piecemeal as the DIY effort of Eric Michaud and Jamie Schwettmann, along with lovers of locksport nationwide, and Austin's South by Southwest festival is the perfect place to celebrate our official launch!
Come hang out with us Wednesday, March 14th, 5-7pm right in the middle of SXSW action, at Austin Details Art + Photo. Bring your hungry bodies and minds -- we've got snacks and lockpicking lessons!
The College of Lockpicking Launch Party features a LockSport Lounge where you can get down and dirty with the locks of your choice -- let the world open up before you! We'll have tables covered with locks, and an assortment of tools for Loungers to get their hands on, as well as our College of Lockpicking custom 10-piece lockpick sets available to take home.
The best way to get a set is to reserve a ticket that comes with a pick set! We can't guarantee we'll have extra sets available beyond what are reserved here!
We'll also have hand-pinned graduated practice lock sets! Reserve these with a LockSport Lover's ticket, which comes with a pick set too. :)
We'll have a mini-lesson about locks and lockpicking, visit the experiences we've had with College of Lockpicking, and talk about why we're doing this, where we're going, and what's to come next...
Want more? We'll see you there! :)
