Lyons WWP Tweaks 2007

We just finished some minor tweaks to a few structures. Most of it was bank work. The A-hole's right bank was built up a bit and it should be improved to close to its original self --more retentative and powerful. I am pretty amped to get the A-hole back for some loops. It is still going to be an expert hole though.

In Meadow Park, drop #3 where you can cartwheel at low water, The left side wing was partially rebuilt. There were some large voids that needed to be tightened for safety reasons (ankle twisters) and the wing was a bit too high. We expanded the beach area by 2x, put in some bikini rocks and dropped the wing down a little. This should help #2 and #3 hopefully, but no promises. We also added at least a dozen fish habitat rocks above #3.

In Bohn park, we worked on some erosion control areas and placed two boulders for aesthetics and fishies.

Great news Arn. Thanks for the update and the work.

I promise this year I will do my best to get the ice rink going. We should be laying the tarp down now and getting in prepped. It won't be long.
