Newsfeed: Debut hydro race is a hit at Columbia Cove
BREWSTER – The Tony Newton Memorial Regatta debuted at Columbia Cove Park on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 10-11, and the reviews from both quarters – city and race officials – are supportive of a return visit next year.
Tacoma Inboard Racing Association officials had to make some last-minute adjustments on the racecourse. Kip Brown of TIRA explained the problem:
“When I went out there today (Friday, Sept. 9) I found all kinds of shallow spots and had to completely change the area where we run,” said Brown. “We need a minimum of four feet of depth.”
With venues getting more difficult to use on the west side of the state, Brewster provided a fresh opportunity to add to the season schedule.
“One of the main reasons for coming out here was the city is behind it, the people are behind it, and it ties in nicely with Pateros,” Brown said.
