Don't Forget: An August Gold Cup in 2015

That's right, the 2015 Gold Cup will be held August 21st - 23rd.

There are two main reasons for the date change. One is that many fans are out of town so close to July 4th, and the other is so that we can again host the Grand Prix hydroplanes which have a conflicting event on the second weekend in July.

The Grand Prix's are the biggest and fastest hydroplanes under the Unlimiteds and are very competitive. Powered by big-block V-8's with superchargers, they will bring a lot of thunder to the D! See the Grand Prix Hydroplane site:
