State of the podcast
Thank you to everyone that contributed to this episode. And to everyone that has shared this podcast
with others.  It really helps.  However , contributions were a bit thin this week. 
Please send me anything you have that is locksport related, even if you don’t think it’s important.  It
might just be the bit of info I needed.  If not, no harm done.

I’m changing the day the podcast is released to Monday, to better fit my schedule.  That will give me
