October 2023 SDPS IDPA Match
What a gorgeous weekend for a match. Many thanks to Ryan Harrigan for stepping in to be the match director. Also, thanks to David Hong, Phil Zidek and Fred Mowrey for designing the stages and for everyone who helped with setup on Saturday. We had challenges with this one but got through stage 2 even though we couldn’t use full automatic to get all three movers. I am especially encouraged that we have so many new faces showing up. The sport thrives.

Al Angulo has been shooting IDPA since the pandemic but is no novice to the shooting sports as he has been a lifetime shooter and participant in indoor shooting. This Sunday he shot his Glock but his go to pistols are a Les Bauer and Wilson Combat 1911 45 ACP. I am very envious. Al also is an avid road racer and has a youtube videos under Al Angulo A+ Racing. Check out his videos. Al is married with children and grandchildren. He lives in Grass Valley and teaches shop at two local high schools.
