This year's Lock In is SuperWhoLock! SuperWhoLock is a combination of three popular fiction shows Supernatural,  Doctor Who, and Sherlock.  

Supernatural is a show about two brothers, Sam and Dean, who join in their father’s footsteps to hunt out monsters after the unfortunate and grizzly death of their mother.  After the search for their father, many years later both Sam and Dean continue to hunt monsters under their motto, “Saving People, Hunting Things, the family business.”

Doctor who, like Supernatural, is a fictional show about a man called The Doctor, from the Planet Gallifrey, that seeks out planets in need of saving.  His regeneration power keeps him alive but changes his appearance every couple hundred years.  His companions usually meet an untimely demise but he still likes to pick up a couple stragglers here and there.

Sherlock, is one of more realistic of the three shows.  It takes place in modern day London with self deemed, “highly functioning sociopath”, Sherlock Holmes and war veteran, Doctor John Watson. Sherlock having a high functioning mind seems to live in his even more clever brother Mycroft Holmes, shadow.  He solves crimes with his partner, John Watson, and runs into a repetitive criminally insane mastermind, James Moriaty. 

The Venturing Lock In is the closing event of the year, where many crews and scouts gather at the Queen of Apostles, to take part in a night of themed events such as Save The Hex Bags, for Supernatural, where 2 teams search for their teams small brown bags hidden within the room and whichever teams gathers all their back first wins for their team. With Gallifreyan Translation,  for Doctor Who, where a series of symbols in Gallifreyan are placed as hints and scouts have to decode the secret message first! And then some Live Action Clue for Sherlock,  where it is like playing clue but with you as the characters and the room as the board! 

The Venturing Lock In is a welcoming place to enjoy the ending of the venturing year and as well enjoy many exciting events.
