Hydroplane Announcement Soon?

Huckleberries hears that ... there might be an announcement re: return of hydroplane racing to Lake Coeur d'Alene soon. Mebbe this week. On March 25, I opened my Huckleberries print column with this:

Huckleberries hears that the Hagadone Corp. and allies are working behind the scenes to bring a small hydroplane regatta to the north shore of Lake Coeur d’Alene late this summer. Sources say that Hagadone property along Silver Beach, including the Beachouse area east of Coeur d’Alene, would be used for viewing. Organizers have asked the city of Coeur d’Alene to help with the logistics of staging the event just outside city limits. Huckleberries also hears that future plans call for the event to transform into a full-blown, unlimited hydroplane race capable of attracting as many as 120,000 viewers on Labor Day weekend 2013. More here.

Question: Anyone heard anything about the possible announcement?
