Next Event! Hammonasset Kite Festival, May 17 & 18, 2014.

Our next Club Event is the Hammonasset Kite Festival at Hammonasset Beach State Park, Madison CT. The official hours are 11 AM to 4 PM on both days. Many of us are camping in the campground there that weekend, so we will be there from noon Friday until Monday afternoon.

To find us, come straight in to the park, passing through the entrance kiosks. At the rotary, take the first possible turn from the rotary towards West Beach. Where we actually end up parking on any given day depends on wind direction and field conditions or use. We are generally easy to find somewhere past the parking lot for West Beach.

Come play with us!

CAMPERS: If you stay in the Campground at Hammonasset Beach State Park, the Campground Pass includes entrance to the Park. Many of us camp there for the Hammonasset Kite Festival. The campsites closest to the kite flying fields are Pootatuck 30 and 29, then Nipmuck Y, X, W, V, and U.
