|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
Unfortunately, shortly after the LPGAC Board of Directors voted to
reopen the range, Green 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. Again, 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 availability.
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.
