Monthly Lockpicking Meetup - Jan 5th

By Will B on

**Cincinati Locksport Meeting **
Saturday, January 5, 2019
3:00 PM to 5:00 PM

We'll have lockpicking tutorials as well as general discussion.
All skill levels are welcome.
Bring your own tools and locks if you have them, though I'll also have a few extra picks and tensioners for those who don't have their own.

An additional topic may be added as this meetup gets closer. Feel free to ask or recommend one.

While it is not a requirement, RSVPing to the meetup if you are attending does help me plan ahead more easily, so if you can it would be much appreciated.

Wood Working Warden hours 5-7pm

By Will B on

A quick reminder that tonight we have our Woodworking Warden's open hours from 5 - 7

The Woodshop warden will be in the shop and available to help out with questions on all questions Woodshop related.

Do you have a question about changing blades on a piece of equipment? Do you want to be shown how to use the Planer before you start your next project? Do you have a project that you are stuck on and want a second opinion? Do you just want to come down talk shop?

This is an opportunity to do any or all of those.
