Name that Rapid on the Eagle River

there is a rapid that most locals recognize on the lower eagle run. it is immediately after the edwards treatment plant put in, shortly after you go under the hillcrest drive bridge. it is generally a CL III wave train, but it is a fun and distinguishable rapid especially given the nature of this section of river with very few other rapids. the property around the rapid used to be undeveloped, but currently the vail christian school is building a new campus and chapel right next to the rapid. the school site will also include some new sidewalks and paths adjacent to the river and rapid, so this area may become more spectator friendly.

with all this in mind, i think we should name the rapid. i have my own thoughts included in the poll, but please throw out some other suggestions if you have them. perhaps it is already named, and i just haven't heard in the short time i've lived here. what do you think?

Philip, I agree, this is a fun spot, deserving of a name. One of our other guides asked if there was a name for it, and I called dibs to name it Dave's Waves after myself, haha. I have called it the "soul train" before, fun long wave train, soul train...

Any other takers for Dave's Waves?
