If there is a theme to this weekend's three major IDPA matches it's “Sold Out”. The Missouri and South Carolina State Championships, and the Golden Gate Regional, are all sold out, and for the most part have been for some time.

Of course, the huge demand for slots in IDPA's major championships is no surprise considering the explosive growth in membership. As of June 1, IDPA's total membership stands at 20,672, which represents a 9.72% increase since the first of this year. And IDPA's rate of growth shows no signs of slowing down.

Here's the info on this weekend's sold out championships:
