11/10: SAVE THE DATE! GroovMekanex 19th Yr. Anniversary Party & 1v1 Locking Jam

Come join the Bay Area’s own Locking crew, GroovMekanex in celebrating their 19th yr. Anniversary!

With the low numbers of Locking specific events/jams around in the US, we hope to continue to do our part in providing a space to help bring lockers around the world together in celebrating our love for Locking. Same party vibe, with our unique GMx Locking battle format on the side.

**Part of the proceeds will go to typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines.**
