On Saturday September 24, 2016 CCDL will be hosting our 4th consecutive poker run!

This year we have changed the route and will be starting at the Meriden Motor Boat Club located at 267 Airline Ave in Portland and end at Doody's Totoket Inn located at 465 Foxon Road in North Branford

We are planning a HUGE party and we will be rocking with the band Wastin’ Bullets which is one of Connecticut's best honky tonk/country bands. Both motorcycles and cars are welcome to participate in the run, and EVERYONE is welcome to attend the after-party whether you ride or not.

Registration is from 9:30 - 10:30am. Breakfast sandwiches and coffee will be available for purchase at the start of the run. The cost is $20 per rider or driver and $15 per passenger. The cost includes the after-party. At the Meriden Motor Boat you will be given directions to the various locations.

At each location you will pick a playing card from a deck. You can expect to drive between 50 and 70 miles total, and it will finish at the Doody's Totoket Inn. Prizes will be awarded at the end for the top five poker hands.

If you just want to attend the party and not participate in the poker run, admission will be $15 per person payable at the door. Admission includes food and entertainment. Drinks are extra.

We’ll have special 2016 CCDL Poker Run shirts and bandanas for sale at both the start and the finish. Quantities are limited, when they are gone, that’s it.

All net proceeds go to fight for our 2nd Amendment rights.
