    Hrmmm, and who's to say we won't be giving help since we 'might':: wink wink :: be in the contest and creating subterfuge among those that come for help. :: cough ::

    LosT, Is that your way of telling us the mystery challenge is to have more difficult locks to pick than last time? ;)

    It will be interesting to see how many teams from the mystery challenge run to the LP village to 'hire' help ... ;)

    TOOOL Boston had a meeting on sunday night and have agreed between us to bring anything and everything we can to this event in terms of tools and ideas. I certainly hope that things are still humming on this end, and if there is anything specific that we can help with in the immediate, please let us know, otherwise we'll start pitching our ideas in the very near future.

    Hey Doc,

    Here's what I've got on the above:

    1. Rules last year were pretty good. I would have been nice to know going into it which way opened the lock, as this was an advantage for second heat and later, but us poor saps in the first heat went in blind. But that's a small point.
    2. Heh.. here's a big surprise... More space! :)
    3. skip
    4. We've got people available to talk on a wide range of topics, so keep me posted if you've got requests for talks and need people to fill spots.
    5. I would be happy to give "intro to lock picking" talks/workshops once again, and would throw my hat in to talk on a range of topics if there is need and no one to fill.
    6. We'll have several guys from Locksport International there, so just say the word and I'm sure we can jump in with whatever needs doing.
    7. I will be bringing a pretty large number of cylinders, but no lockboards. Actually, one of the things I found last year was that the lock boards mostly impeded people's ability to actually get near a lock to pick. It was difficult to have more than one person at any given lockboard. So, I figured allowing people to just grab locks out of a bin and pick them in hands would at least allow more people to have access to locks to pick. I'll have as many locks as luggage space/weight will permit, or may choose to ship a big box of lock to the hotel before the con (shipping cost permitting).
    8. Not sure what just yet, but I'm sure L.I can kick in something for prizes. I'll have to keep you posted on that as we work out the details.

    Cheers!

    you can always count on the TOOOL folks to donate any and all free time/knowledge/hardware that we have to spare up in the LPvillage towards the LPCON competition.

    i'd be happy to put together a series of 5-minute quick lessons -- either stand-up speed demos or just instructional videos that elaborate the details of a specific bypass/technique/etc... these would make pretty decent time fillers in between rounds as you're setting folks up, clearing the stage, etc.

    plenty of extra locks will always be present... along with extra beer.

    Sorry for my extended absence. Real life has been just nuts lately.

    Its time to start getting everything set for LPCON5 at DEFCON15. The website is up at: www.securitytribe.com/~doc/lpcon5/.

    I would like to put out an invitation for the following:
    1. Recommendations for the rules this years SkillZ competition (formerly known as the speed competition) and also the Points competition.
    2. Recommendation for improvements over last year
    3. LPCON 5 official T-Shirt Designs. Please send to doc-lpcon at hotmail dot com by June 1st.
    4. Any requests for talks?
    5. Any volunteers to talk? (and the topic)
    6. Other volunteers to help (tracking points etc)
    7. Volunteers to bring locks and boards to add to the points competition
    8. Anybody have a company or organization that would be willing to provide some sponsorship (prizes, locks etc)?

    Thanks All
    Doc

    That's a shame. With the same crew as last year, plus the addition of TOOOL to the mix, the skybox is going to be packed. That will greatly limit the contests, events, etc that we can run.

    There's no sense in LSI bringing in lots of gear and getting displays and events prepared if there won't be a place to hold them.

    I am confident we can adapt and overcome. The two main groups in the LPVillage last year were TOOOL and LSI. We will just need to figure out the best configuration we can. If we are able to get more space than last year, GREAT, but we need to plan for the worst. It's all good. Thanks guys

    Well for sure. I'm all for whatever space is provided. I'd just really like it to be larger than what we had last year. More people there to show stuff off and more events means more space is needed.

    Not to nitpick, but I seem to recall that some of the space along the hallway was becoming available. This area might be larger and more flexible than the skyboxes.

    I may be wrong, but don't force yourselves into a skybox when there's other space available.

    I talked with Russ and it seems unlikely we will get a second skybox for the LPVillage. What he did recommend is that we could do some training and presentations on the main floor of the contest area. We would just have to work the schedule in a way that would minimize interruptions.

    The contest idea about making your own tools is a cool idea. I think we might have a safety issue and a space issue with several grinders in our little skybox. Lets keep this as a possibility and see where we are at as we get closer.

    Thanks
    Doc
