CCDL Poker Run

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.

State Reps Dubitsky & France Discuss Future Gun Control Bills

Appearing September 6, 2016 on The Lee Elci Show, State Reps Doug Dubitsky and Mike France were asked a key question by the host regarding the likelihood of future gun control bills in the legislature.

The discussion that followed was very foretelling of what is, and is not likely to happen in the next legislative session. The entire segment is 15 minutes long and well worth listening to, but if you’re pressed for time and just want to hear the part about guns you can fast-forward to the 5:45 mark.

As we have been saying since the last legislative session, 2016 may be the most important election for gun owners in the history of Connecticut.

As a reminder of what our members can do to make a difference in the upcoming election, CCDL has a published list of endorsed candidates who need our help and support. Please contact Pro 2nd Amendment candidates in or near your House and Senate legislative districts, and ask how you can help them before November elections.

Just a small amount of time spent helping can make a difference in whether or not a candidate wins or loses. Rest assured if our side loses, there will be more gun control bills that pass and become law.
