Lockpick Village
Breakout Room: TBD
When: Sat-Sun

Oak City Locksport will be running a Lockpick Villageon Saturday and Sunday May 6 and 7. If you've never picked a lock and want to learn this is the place to start. If you're an intermediate or advanced picker and want to try something new, ask the Village staff because not everything we have may be out!
OCL will have:
- Picking contests and games
- Lock Swap: Bring your spare locks for a lock swap with other participants. On Saturday and Sunday from 1-2 there will be a designated area for swaps. Make your own trades, but OCL staff can help evaluate the condition of the locks made in trade.
- OCL Store: Progressive and re-pinnable locks will be available for sale along with a variety of picks and picking gear, swag, etc.

OCL is the RDU area locksport club, founded in 2010. We meet once a month to pick locks and share our projects. Find us on Meetup to attend a meeting.
