Re: Commercial use of the Rice Canyon Range
At the June 9, 2014 regular meeting of the Sierra Sportsmen's and Junior Div., Inc., it was voted and approved that Concealed Carry Weapons (CCW) live fire tests would be allowed as long as all participants were current club members.
At the September 8, 2014 regular meeting, a review of the lease agreement between Lassen County, The Bureau of Land Management and the Sierra Sportsmen's and Junior Div., Inc. by the Lassen County Council was presented. It was the Council’s opinion that any commercial activities at the Rice Canyon Range would be considered a violation of the lease agreement (See attached opinion). After discussion, a motion was made and passed by the Club that no commercial activities will be allowed at the Rice Canyon Range. This includes, but is not limited to, CCW testing and training.
Thank you for your patience during this process and we hope this resolves any further questions and uncertainties about what the policy is, in this matter.
