Walker Edens started this petition to U.S National Whitewater Center

For many years Well hole at the U.S National Whitewater center was a great hole that freestyle and creek boater kayakers could play around in all day. But over the years from 2016-2019 Well Hole has gotten shallower and less retentive. Well Hole used to be one of if not the the best play hole(s) in Charlotte. The Whitewater Center is right next to huge city (Charlotte) and an international airport. Well hole drew in freestyle paddlers from all across North Carolina and even some of the Eastern States Of America. But when Well Hole got worse less and less freestyle paddlers started coming to the whitewater center. When Well Hole was good I used to 10+ freestyle paddlers surf it each day but now I the most I’ve seen this year was 5 (and that was in a freestyle competition at tuck fest), but on normal days I see 1-3 everyday. I keep saying when Well Hole was good or worse. What I mean by good was Well Hole used to have a big foam pile, it was more retentive, and it was deeper. Well Hole had some of the best qualities a play hole can ever have. When I say Well Hole was worse I mean it is less retentive, small foam pile, shallow, developed a tongue on the left side, and sometimes the in decent parts of the hole the foam pole disappears then re-apears causing kayakers to flush out of the hole. About 50 percent of the time a freestyle paddler plugs in Well Hole now they hit the bottom (sometimes damaging their boat). I have a friend who has gotten injury from getting getting flipped on Well Hole and hitting rocks. When I competed in the Freestyle Competition at Well Hole at Tuck fest, they redirected more water to the Wilderness Channel to make Well Hole better but it changed almost nothing. Enough talking about the bad parts of Well Hole. Some good reasons of why the U.S National Whitewater Center should make Whelp Hole good again is it would become known again as the best play hole in Charlotte, boats would not be damaged, kayakers would have more FUN, most importantly for the Whitewater Center it would draw lots more paddlers to the Whitewater Center, and freestyle kayaking would gain more momentum as a sport. Special thanks to the Whitewater Staff for sometimes making a decent wave/hole in the beginning of the Wilderness Channel. Thank you for taking your time to read this and please consider signing my petition. If you want to help even more than please share it too! Have a nice day and Paddle Hard!
