Organizers of the 2015 Coeur d’Alene Silver Cup unlimited hydroplane race announced they have postponed the event scheduled for July and are now planning a 2016 event instead. Keith Allen, vice president and race director, said more time is needed to raise money for the Lake Coeur d’Alene event. To have a successful event next year, he said, organizers would have to raise at least $300,000. Allen said organizers were crunched for time in gaining sponsorship funds to pay for the event this year, and that was the primary reason this summer’s event was canceled. The event was planned for July 17-19 and was to be based at Silver Beach. “We’re disappointed,” he told The Press Wednesday/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
