Mr Sergent (Big Bird)

You are very quick to call me a liar about my review. You neglect to point out just what I am lying about. Could it be that this non profit is run "like a dictatorship" Is that untrue?
Is it the fact that around 200 free flight pilots have absolutely no input at all in the spending of the non-profit money you collect. Is that a lie??
Defamation does have serious legal consequences and I believe you are calling me a "liar".
Would you care to enlighten me and other readers as to what I am"lying" about. You seem a little vague.
A favorable review written by the "founder" of this non profit (you) is of course very complimentary.
My experience and that of others is somewhat different. If you want to cal me a liar and threaten defamation legal consequences, please have the courtesy to enlighten me and any readers as to the ACTUAL lie/untruth that you are referring to.
As to your accusation that I am attempting to "defame your good name". I believe that you are doing a great job by yourself. I am simply pointing out some anomalies in this "non profit" group, and still hoping, that one day its handful of members, will come to their senses and run an all inclusive club, where all users, and people that donate their $ to you, have a say in the distribution of said funds, and some input into the running of this world class Hang Gliding and Paragliding site that is situated entirely on public Forest Service land.

This non profit is run like a dictatorship. The club maintains their power by having bylaws written in 2004 that maintain their "committee" indefinitely. Four people (with perpetual votes) push their private agenda and wishes on over 200 free flight pilots.
The founder and the perpetual committee have many times publicly ranted against other pilots and groups. There is definitely a "Founders Syndrome" going on here and the perpetual committee rubber stamp all of this rather unstable individuals wild accusations and rants.
