Feds Yank St. Joe Jet Race Permit

Organizers of the St. Maries - St. Joe River Jet Boat Race have announced on their Facebook page that the U.S. Coast Guard would not authorize their permit to hold the “Race the Joe” jet boat races May 17-19. A caller from the area said the permit requires that there be no environmental damage.  “But every goose and duck and bird is nesting or raising their young and there are three bald eagle nests in that stretch of river so it's amazing the were able to get away with a race last  year,” the woman said.  The race is hosted by the St. Maries Chamber of Commerce and Epic Motorsports Consulting Group, L.L.C/Rich Landers, SR Outdoors blog.

Question: Speaking of boat races on North Idaho waters, has anyone heard a peep re: the return of hydroplane racing to Lake Coeur d'Alene over Labor Day weekend?
