On Saturday September 9, 2017 CCDL will be hosting our 5th consecutive poker run!
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. The cost is $20 per rider or driver and $15 per passenger. The cost includes the after-party. At the Central Connecticut Arms 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 2017 CCDL Poker Run shirts for sale at both the start and the finish. Quantities are limited, when they are gone, that’s it.

Last year's ride was one of the largest poker runs in the state! Let's make it an even greater success this year!
Come join us in support of our Second Amendment Rights!
On Saturday, September 30th CCDL held its 3rd Legislative Shoot and Luncheon.
This year's event was a joint effort with the National Rifle Association, National Shooting Sports Federation, and Fairfield County Fish and Game. All state legislators, their staff, and their families were invited. This year there were over 30 guests in attendance, many of them were 1st time shooters. They were able to shoot many different styles of firearms, we had trap, bullseye, handgun, bolt action rifles, and AR stations setup. All the guests had a great time.
As a legislative action organization, events like this are a great opportunity to educate our legislators and their staff about firearms and also opens up communications with them about our cause.
Many thanks to our guests and everyone else that made this event a great success.
