August 4th, 2020:

In May of this year the Board of Directors of the Long Prairie Gun and Archery Club
(LPGAC) voted unanimously to reopen the range for Concealed Carry Weapons
(CCW) Instruction and Qualification. The Humboldt County Sheriffs Office was also
consulted and approved the reopening of the range for limited use, so long as
appropriate COVID-19 related protocols were in place. Protocols which we were
easily able to implement.

Unfortunately, shortly after the LPGAC Board of Directors voted to reopen the
range, G
reen Diamond Resource Company, the owners of the property used by the
LPGAC, chose to keep the range closed.

In June of this year I was told that the LPGAC Range would be allowed to reopen for
use in mid August. Following this I committed to conducting both Initial and Renewal
Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) Classes again effective September 13th, 2020.
Unfortunately, I was informed late last week that the
closure of the Long Prairie Gun
and Archery Club Range would be extended through the end of September.
this extension was per Green Diamond Resource Company, not the Long Prairie
Gun and Archery Club.

Because of the uncertainty regarding range availability, both due to COVID-19 and
Green Diamond Resource Company,  I have elected to cancel all remaining
firearms training courses for the remainder of 2020.

My sincere apologies to all of our loyal students who have continued to support us
as well as our new students who have contacted me regarding CCW Training for
not being able to meet your training needs.

I also apologize to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) for being unable to
do my part to reduce the backlog of CCW Renewals HCSO wants to finalize but is
unable to do so because existing CCW carriers are unable to meet the Renewal
CCW training and qualification requirements of the HCSO.

It is also with a heavy heart that I announce that due to the death of my mother on
July 8th, 2020, as well as deteriorating health on my part,  I have decided to start
movng forward with the next stage of my life by retiring for the 3rd and final time. I
will not be scheduling any classes for 2021 due to uncertainty regarding range

If/when Mike Lee Solutions starts scheduling classes again, it will likely be
under a new name and new ownership.

It has been a privilege and an honor to serve you.

June 3rd, 2014:

    Lowell Fletcher put together a NRA Instructor Certification Training Package
    for us consisting of NRA Basic Pistol Instructor, NRA Personal Protection in
    the Home Instructor, and NRA Chief Range Safety Officer.

    By using 12 hour training days and consolidated range shooting, Lowell was
    able to effectively present training that would normally be accomplished over 4
    and 1/2 days in less than 3 days. This does not include the time students
    devoted to "Homework" after the training day concluded.

    This was a long and demanding weekend for the Instructor Candidates. We
    applaud and appreciate the effort and dedication shown by all of the new NRA
    Instructors who participated in the training.

    Congratulations to this new group of NRA Instructors on a job well done!!!

    Thanks again to NRA Training Counselor, Lowell Fletcher for putting together
    the Training Package and coming to us.
