COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

Will they wont they?

The Coeur d'Alene Diamond Cup was denied a special event permit by the Kootenai County Sheriff after organizers failed to meet guidelines by a July 1st deadline.

"We're not against the event happening, we just want to make sure everything is in place so that yet have a successful event," said Lt. Stuart Miller with the Kootenai County Sheriff's Office.

Organizers being denied a permit hasn't stopped the push to bring the hydroplane races to the lake. Within the last two weeks the organization received 2 important permits, but Miller says it's not enough.

"The Sheriff denied the permit, that is his stance, and I don't think that he's going to go back and redo it unless there's some sort of court order saying he has to."

According to the Diamond Cup Facebook page, organizers say they aren't giving up. They, say they'll keep pushing and have even asked the community to urge the Sheriff to reconsider.
