These questions are directed to Mark Wood via NSMB, and via the NSMBA Facebook

1. Why did you try to blackmail an innocent trailbuilder?

2. Why did you concoct lies that Shaton and Wade's Locals' Guide mapbook contain illegal trails?

3. Why did you lie to land managers that Sharon and James planned to pay to build trails through the land manager's land?

Wow, that kind of behavior shouldn't be tolerated by an employee of a volunteer organization.

An employee who is considered the face of the organization.

Doesn't he realize bullying and intimidation is not the way to build loyalty?

This does not inspire a lot of confidence. Glad we don't have to put up with someone like that up here.

Sounds like it's time to clean house.

Wrong. Always.

i think it's unfortunate that Sharon and Lee haven't been able to get the resolve they're looking for. considering how much they have given to the local mtb community it would be nice to see this thing get sorted out.

I'm not a human in real life, I just play one on the internet.

Agreed, also that Wade guy. It seems that his name was also getting dragged into the mix. Too bad this has to play out like this. Hopefully, cooler heads and logic will help to sort this out, but not looking positive as it sounds like this has been brewing for a while.

"Mark came to the Shore 4 years ago and is a full time paid employee of the NSMBA."

I don't know when Mark "came to the Shore" Lee but he was clearly at the 2009 NSMBA AGM where he became a volunteer on the Board before he became a paid employee…

Unfortunately all it takes is one guy with this mind set of "I own the trails" as I call it. And it doesn't take much of it before those doing trail work stop and walk away.

Thanks for the correction. I'll edit. He first rode on the Shore after a long absence in 2008 - we showed him around back then. He was living in Whistler in Summer 2009 and only moved to Vancouver permanently in fall 2009 when he had to move out of his place due to the Olympics.

^^ This - What we have seen so far in this situation is all one-sided. There's also someone else's perspective who is missing from this discussion. I hardly consider Lee's presentation of events to be unbiased - (based on his initial set of derogatory questions, insinuation that Mark was about to go all Jihadist on AA, and misrepresentation of facts that Mark has only been involved in the shore for 4 years - all done in an effort to sway the opinion of his audience

I can only assume that something Lee/Sharon et.al initiated irked Mark - it might have to do with AA, it might be something more. Mark tends to be a bang-on guy from my dealings with him when it comes to trail politics - but he's also not a pushover. Perhaps the building of AA caused a shitstorm of controversy which Mark has had to deal with behind the scenes? I don't know - but until we get both sides of this story no one should be drawing lines in the sand.

In no way do I/we want to minimze the contributions that all involved parties have made to "The Shore" The value of contributions is greatly appreciated by all who ride the trails…but really? you cant figure this shit out? ugh….

i think Ozi said it best - "The shore - LOL"
