Hydro Races Halfway On Finances

Diamond Cup Regatta Chairman Doug Miller said the group spearheading the return of hydroplane races to Lake Coeur d'Alene has secured more than half of the financial total to make the event happen. That total is estimated to be $400,000, Miller said, and race directors could hit the entire sum in the coming weeks. The CDADC board of directors should be ready to announce the names of sponsors then, too. "We're well on our way to securing that funding to move this thing forward," Miller said in an interview Wednesday, estimating the total pledges at "well over halfway"/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Will you buy tickets to see the hydroplane races this Labor Day weekend?
