Hydros go on hiatus

The Unlimited Light Hydroplane Racing Association and Peninsula Water Sports Association recently agreed to postpone the Strait Thunder hydroplane races scheduled for Sept. 26-27 until the 2010 season.

"The depressed economy has taken its toll on event sponsorships across the country and Port Angeles has been no exception," the groups' officials said in a press release.

"Some of the festivals' major supporters have recently had to reprioritize their discretionary spending during the deepest economic downturn in a century. A lack of support at the local level from both sponsorships and volunteers who help conduct the event contributed to today's decision."

This fall would have been the seventh-annual running of Strait Thunder and hydroplane championships. In some cases, corporate supporters have expressed a hope to bring the event back to the Port Angeles harbor next year, according to the press release.
