Other Info
REPLACES SAT MEETING. This drive is a club favorite, this year even better with the addition of a loop through private land. Join us at 10 am for a 4-5 mile jaunt along fairly level roads in East Haddam Fish & Game Club forests. More ambitious drivers can tack on the original 5-6 mile route along Wickham Road (dirt) and back by way of Beebe (paved). Follow up with a picnic lunch with the Cones family (hamburgers, hot dogs and fabulous clam chowder provided, bring a dish and a chair). We will also have a brief club meeting. SEE YOU THERE!
