Repair Board Withdraws: Factual Version

Posted by Schuyler Towne (Creator)

As of this week, the Repair Board has voted to end association with the Open Locksport kickstarter. The original purpose of the board, that is, to gear Schuyler out of a self-made morass and potentially life-threatening stress situation, has been completed. Schuyler has been handed back his promotional items, lock cases, practice kits, and other related items to the Kickstarter - they are no longer in anyone's hands but his own.

As a courtesy, the board will continue to offer the constructed spreadsheets and tools for Schuyler to use as a checklist of what is left to be done, but we will no longer be checking on him or providing him specific advice as a board. Shortly, we will be handing him this kickstarter account back, and all future postings will be from Schuyler.

According to our spreadsheet, all backers under $35 and over $100 have been given their full rewards. All backers from $35-$100 should have all non-pick rewards (shirts, stickers, practice kits, etc.). 

All movement on this project going forward will be the responsibility of Schuyler.

The board members were Jason Aller, Andrew Gagne, Brian Martin, and Jason Scott.

      We've already seen how responsible Schuyler is ...

      Mike, how would they know? They just said that they don't.

      So... what does that mean for the timeline? It hasn't exactly been timely, even with you folks riding the gas pedal.
