Just a thought

Not sure if this is the correct section...

I am sure most have heard of love locks which couples attach to bridges with their initials on, apparently some authorities find them a nuisance and costly to remove. So I was thinking why dont they get them removed for free and organize a lock picking competition on the bridges that need clearing. it could become a yearly event :-)

Example .......http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/artic ... s-too.html

I may just email Boris Johnson the London Mayor and bounce the idea off him.
Is this something you would like to take part in if the opportunity arose?

Re: Just a thought

If you will pay airfare to London, I'd be glad to take part!

It sounds like a great opportunity for advancing Locksport.

Re: Just a thought

Just saved me an air fare as apparently this fad has progressed to your state in America, :-)
Just google `love locks`

Re: Just a thought

Just checked. You are right, but still would not decline airfare to London. Or even Edinburgh, for that matter. :D

See mention of a place in Sedona, but you have to buy a lock from their gift shop. :? Guess we could start the fad on the bridge over the Rillito River here in Tucson. But you'd need a very big lock, as it is not chain link or anything else easy to lock onto. You would never have to worry about a boat getting hit by a falling lock, since there is only water in that 'river' for maybe a week (total) each year.
