Take 18 inch or so rebar and pound those suckers flush. Don't bother candy caning. It just makes them harder to drive into the playa. For removal (a method I used, and successfully pulled 10 buried rebars out with, by my girlie self, thankyouverymuch) was to pour a cup or two of water on the rebar then take some vice grips and clamp on and twist those fuckers a few times, a little more water, twist and pull. Out! I could only get about 3 bars in myself during set-up, but wouldn't you know at 6am on Monday none of those strong burly boys were around to help me get them OUT. Thank goodness Miles woke up to my cursing and banging the rebar sideways with a sledge, and told me to find my vice grips and use them. Worked a charm.
Rebar, 5 lb sledge, good leather gloves, and vice grips. Done.
In dust we trust.
