Lawson ???

I'm afraid to ask, but what's going on at the Lawsom Play Spot. It looks like the dream may be over. It appears to me that someone is digging everything thing up to improve (ruin) a new spot.

Saw that about a week ago and wondered the same thing. Thought to myself, ouch...this one's going to hurt.

I'm going to try to remain the eternal optimist and say that things might even end up better when all's said and done, but it's tough to improve on what was and hopefully still will be.

Lawson's one of my favorite holes! Leave it alone! (I realize it too late),
I'm sad but have my fingers crossed that it'll be better...

I am out of state now. This was one of my favorite places too. I would suggest that you guys stop by now and then and kind of check it out provide some insight along with cases of beer.

I thought you coudldn't dig in a river/creek without a ton of permits. Are they digging in the river, or next to it?

Also, digging in the river would be incredibly hard with the very high banks. Can someone give us more explanation?

Thanks.

This is the Lawson Whitewater Park

I assume they have permits as it could not be more high profile

My wicked sick interweb skills found this

I live in Dumont, down the road from the hole in & check on the park often. He appears not to be touching the hole. He HAS been told by a number of people that we know where he lives if he F's up our hole. If the hole gets messed up, this post will likely disappear.

His girlfriend even mentioned to my wife that a ton of people had told him to leave it alone & that was the plan.

He started with the feature below the hole & has been working downstream so I feel relatively confident it will stay the way it is.

cross your fingers.

It will be nice to put in there regardless of water levels. I heard from a "friend of a friend" who snuck up to peek the other night that the hole hasn't been touched as of yet.

I look at it every day as I get off the hwy, I pull over on the exit & check it out to see what got done each day, kinda cool to see it come together. I'll be SURE to let everyone know if anything changes so I can get a crew together to beat his ass.
I hate driving to Boulder, so I'll be rather surly by the time we hit his neighborhood.
