Hi There :)

Rattle that keyboard a bit and say hi, introduce yourself or tell us why you're here. For new members this is your first port of call

My name is Chris, and I am in the south west of England near Bristol. I am very new to lock sport, and have just started playing with Lock Cowboys set off amazon. I am a web designer/developer and have a love of finding out how things work (this might have something to do with having an ASD though :P)

I live with my wife and two cats and spend way too much time solving puzzles and dismantling and rebuilding things, so lock sport seemed like a good thing to do lol

anyhow, thanks in advance and look forward to learning more here :D

Yeah, I did notice that meet up and its easy to get there. Only downside is in the High Risk group so if things carry on as they are with this virus, it will fall in the 12 week isolation period :(

I wish I had a "welcome template" like some of the others here, saying to read the rules etc. Just do as they say! :)

There's a wealth of information on this forum and if you can't find what you're after just ask. The only stupid question is one that isn't asked!

Don't be afraid of posting photos of locks you pick on the way as we all like pictures, no matter how easy they are to open. Everybody started somewhere and like seeing people progress. You don't have to pick a Medico to get a +1! In fact there's a whole thread on "What you didn't pick today"' :)

More than anything, have fun and keep it legal!

As far as I'm concerned you can't spend: "too much time solving puzzles and dismantling and rebuilding things." :)

I think I've just written my first "welcome template"
"Without a naughty bucket life would be boring!" :)
