THANK YOU! REP LAWSON IS BACK! 2011

Thank you so much for fixing the hole up at the Lawson Play park. What a joy it was to paddle up their today, whatever you did worked great. As a long time vet of the feature I can tell you that the hole always fluctuated a bit from year to year. Over the last ten or so years it started to get more predictable as boat styles chanced and people really started to look for that type of feature.

It is back to as good as I can remember at this level. The top hole has an easy release off of both shoulders, the foam pile is centered and deep. It was easy to cartwheel either direction, loops where a breeze, set-up were easy on the pillow, and if you flipped you flushed and hit it you stuck it.

It is way better that anything at Golden right now and should only get better with a higher flow.

Thank you Shane, Mike, and Gary. You made things right again. I am very impressed with the way you work. I would personally like to apologize for anything negative that I may have posted in the past about what you guys are doing.

If you get a chance to paddle this weekend and you want to playboy near Denver you have to check this place out. If you have a good time while your there I think we could all do REP a favor and pump this place up. Jump on to this post and say thank you.

Don Dowling

Good to hear that is is back. I hope you are right that it is as good. I haven't had a chance to get to it since the river started coming up. I think the big thing they did was move the rock on river right just above the hole that was pushing most of the water into the left side last year.

WWPR,
Get on it and let us know what you think too. I know you have a ton of time in the old "hole". Have they installed the river water heater just upstream so I don't get the brain freeze after 10-15 minutes of good play time? Lookin forward to that.

You know, there's my new reason to complain about rep... NO RIVER HEATER.


This is crap. I want my money back.

oh man... we're supposed to base it being good on YOUR paddling don??? :P :P

Looks like it holds you after a finish & that's what was lacking before.
