I fear I must concur with you. Just like alot of things, people have a bias towards their home area and think it tends to be better then it is. I've been avoiding that place for the last couple years. The only hole I have any fun in is the first large feature a couple holes up from the Bleachers. I do think that a few of the drops need to get demolished and started from scratch, namely the bleacher hole. Now I know there will be people that will be sad that they can't bash the hell out of the nose of their kayaks doing right cartwheels there, but the potential for that spot is great. Yes, at low water it might not be spectactular, but that spot has alot of potential for higher water (aka 200 and over). Its also the best spot to have a rodeo, spectator wise. As much as I hate to say, I think they just need to pull that whole thing out and make the traditional Gary Lacy smack down the center typical hole. It works at BV, Salida, Lyons, and Steamboat. SO lets get this council going and make something of the Golden park, rather the have it be something that the Golden locals put up with because its close by.
