L5 is a tough one for certain. The maintenance of it was always a subject that until it connects with the field opening across the west would be tough.
I love the energy and ideas you got flowing through!
Is the pin still there, Jack? After seeing the work that has been done on the rest of the course, I would doubt that cleaning up L5 for the Wide Open would be all that tough considering the work that's been done on 11 (LOOKS FANTASTIC DOWN THERE). If the pin placement is still there and it is an accessible pin for one weekend, I don't see why we couldn't clean it up even if it is the only weekend that the placement is used all year. In the three years I've been playing disc golf in KC I've always wondered about that long placement. Granted, I like having short 5 as a deuce opportunity more often than not. But, why not stretch it for the weekend that the big boys are here? 90% of them will deuce that short placement and it becomes somewhat of a dull hole for them as it is just an easy hyzer. I haven't been able to attend the work days thus far out there, but if the pin is still there and I get the go ahead, I'm sure I can round up some east siders with weed eaters to clean the area for the Wide Open.
