    Shot contest?

    2 parts (Best shot)

    and who can do 10 shots AND run the fastest around the casino.

    - Dallas

    Also thought a best hard core beverage contest would be in order.
    The part I put in bold:
    This is probably a bad idea. Based on one of the problems last year with a contest taking place outside the defcon space (casino areas, or hotel) having people running around the casino as part of a contest is probably a bad idea.

    Maybe running in the contest space won't be so bad? I don't know.

      Sorry I'm so far behind the times, but I was hoping to run a lock field stripping contest. I'll be providing all of the locks and tools people will need to dis/re-assemble them, along with a locksport related prize package to the winner. All I need is table space and a reasonable amount of time.

        Talk to the people that are running/organizing the LP Village. This sounds like something that would be on-target with their space.

        I see you have posted something there.

          Thank you, yes, I noticed soon after I posted this that not all contests were actually held on the contest floor. Sorry, this will be my first DEFCON, so I didn't quite realize how everything was set up. thank you for pointing me in the right direction. :)

            I think that most contests are setup on the floor, but other events, BoF-like sessions, and shops like this are taking place in many other locations like skyboxes.

            Even though the LP Village and LP-Con include shared organizers/leaders, I split them into different forums for organization, location and to help draw attention to it as an event at the con that people uninterested in competing might be interested in visiting a learning/information village.

            We have the same for the WiFi village and the Wireless contest-- people not interested in competition may not have know about a wifi village discussion space unless we included it as its own forum.

              To be honest, I would recommend contacting those that run LPcon as well as those organizing the Village.. or maybe Deviant, Mouse, and the other coool folks in toool.

              Also a consideration .. offer a contest organized via russr / LPcon / et al .. but ALSO run some breakouts and hands-on sessions prior to the contest alongside the Village people. This is a concept adopted by us wireless folks to bolster participation and learning, instead of limiting to those that already know what they're doing. If there is one thing I've learned from the Defcon crowd and various prior events/contests, never underestimate the ability of someone unknown that has not touched (subject) before.. to grow attached to the concept and successively kick EVERYONE's ass at it before the weekend is over. CTF, LPcon.. and last year the winners of LosT's mystery box contest were random walk-ons at the last minute. ..just a couple examples.

              ..couple thoughts..
              if it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud; and I'm gonna go there free.

                Just so it's said, I don't mind drunken debauchery, but I'm not going to encourage it. If some ding dong wants to down 10 ounces of hard liquor and run around like a fool, he/she can do that OUTSIDE of the conference area. There's FAR too much liability for the conference concerning this, especially when you consider the sheer number of hard or pointy objects in and around the conference area.
