Default CT River Run / Pizaa Party / Foliage Tour

We are going boating once again !
Want to come ?
Want some pizza ?

As most of you know Oct 16 is the date .

Important !!!
There will be a Police/DEEP/Coast Guard presence all along the river . There were very few complaints last year about No Wake Zone violations so let's keep that going .

Authorities will be monitoring this thread so if you have any questions just ask .

Launch where you want (Pete be posting a list of sites from Old Saybrook north to Hartford) .

Changes this year .....
We will gather at a beach on the western side of the river just north of Gildersleeve Island in Cromwell at noon for pizza .
We have used this great beach in the past and it has woked out nicely .
There will be a PortaPottie there , please use it and not the beach , remember we are guests in the residents back yard .
There is a bunch of eel grass all along the shores of the river this year . You might want to cut your motor and glide in .

Pizza Joe from No Anchovies is moving to Florida so he has hooked us us with Michel Angelo's in Rocky Hill . Great pizza !

Remember stay to the eastern side of the 3 islands you will encounter from Haddam to Cromwell .

On the western side of Gildersleeve Island 250 yards south of our new beach there is a submerged wall extending 2/3 of the way across the river towards Gildersleeve Island so if you are unfimiliar with the river do not navigate south of our beach on the western side of Gildersleeve Island .
I'm sure Pete will have a chart detailing this .


PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE ATTENDING ( and how many with you ) BY OCT. 14 SO I KNOW HOW MUCH PIZZA TO ORDER .
IF YOU DO NOT CALL , EMAIL OR TEXT ME PLEASE BE PREPARED TO SUPPLY YOUR OWN FOOD .
You can contact me at [email protected] or 860-214-1667 .
Pizza proceeds go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

I will be adding info to this post soon .
Feel free to ask questions via PM , email , or phone .


Everybody , Please Wear Your Vests And Lanyards !!!

We must obey all the rules and regulations !
Pete will post these (probably by the time you read this)

There IS a speed limit (45 mph) and many No Wake Zones !
We MUST be respectful of all other watercraft !

Given the location change was there any thought put into having a Saturday run? Sunday puts a damper on things. We are in regardless. Thanks.

This change was a very late development (Tues) . So we are locked into the date this year . We will look at a Sat gathering if we invited back next year .

this is a long standing event that has been going on long before you got into boats. 100+ show up for a charitable cause. if you don't like it, drag ass.

And before people jump on me for being rude, 315 knows the event has been on the forums and has had the same comments in the past.
