2012 Golden Gate IDPA Regional Championships Richmond, California June 8-9, 2012 Registration for the Golden Gate IDPA match is now open. Come out to Richmond and join us for a couple of days of action pistol shooting with some of the best IDPA shooters in the region. This is one of only two sanctioned IDPA matches scheduled on the West Coast this year. Match Website: http://www.GoldenGate-IDPA.com The match will include 11 stages, 150 competitor slots, and more than 18,000 rounds expended over two days. This year's event will be scaled down compared to previous years. We are not doing a prize table, holding side matches, or providing a BBQ. On the other hand, we have dramatically cut the cost of this match to provide an affordable day with tough courses of fire in an official sanctioned IDPA match. The dates are Friday and Saturday, June 8th and 9th. Safety Officers and Staff will shoot on Friday, and the main competition will shoot on Saturday. Awards will be presented after competition concludes on Saturday. The match will be open to classifications of Marksman or better, and you will need to have shot a Classifier Match after June 8th, 2011 in the class in which you wish to compete (requirement not applicable to "Master" classification). This is a great opportunity to take part in a major shooting competition, even if you don't consider yourself a "championship" shooter. We encourage you to consider competing and enjoying a great day of shooting and fun. We also have several staff positions still open if you wish to help out and earn a substantial discount off the match fee. Contact the Match Director at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested. If you have questions about the match, please feel free to PM me.
