March 2024 SDPS IDPA Match

Well, the rain gods favored us both for setup Saturday and for the match on Sunday.  Thank you to Kevin Ballment, our match director, and his faithful minions for setup on Saturday. Our fearless club president, El Presidente Harrigan, announced that there are/were 30 open spots for the Western match in May so get on the dime and signup if you haven’t yet. Also, please note that for April’s match and going forward, the first week of match sign up will be for SOs only so they can distribute themselves amongst the squads and ensure that we have juried matches for each squad. Ryan also announced that we will have a 3-gun match soon. Look for the signup. We had 95 shooters show up in what had appeared to be a foreboding day weatherwise. Again, many thanks to Kevin for the stage designs.
