2012 Golden Gate Regional IDPA Championships & Match Report

**UPDATE** 

California IDPA Regional Match Report

NVSA has traditionally provided support for IDPA regional and state matches held in Northern California. This year, Jay Kuca and Wes Riley led the club’s effort at the 2012 Golden Gate IDPA Regional Match, held at the Richmond Rod and Gun Club on June 9. They were assisted by JC Smith of the Diablo Rod and Gun Club in Concord and Win Hoblitzelle and Mike Simi of the Richmond Rod and Gun Club.

The 2012 Golden Gate regional match consisted of 11 stages on 6 bays. Approximately 150 shooters participated in the match. The NVSA team set up and ran two stages on Bay 4 of the match.

Match preparation began on Thursday, June 7, when all stages were set up and reviewed by Steve Cachia, Match Director. On Friday, June 8, approximately 40 staff members (SO’s and match officials) shot the match. The remaining match registrants shot the match on Saturday, June 9.

Approximately a dozen NVSA members participated in the match. The following NVSA members received awards for their efforts:
