Annual Shadbake at MSC

This coming Sunday, June 24th starting at noon, is the Annual Moodus Sportsman's Club Shadbake. The shadbake has been held annually for at least 60 years, and quite possibly as far back as 1942, when the club was first organized.
The picture to the right shows how we prepare the shad. Some of you think that shad is oily, and avoid it. With this cooking method all the oils are baked out, and you end up with a mild yet tasty fish. Still not sure? The members of the Club have prepared a wide array of delicious dishes from chowder, to venison chili and hot dogs for the really fussy.
COST: Tickets are $20 for adult and teen aged kids; $17 for seniors (over 65) and $6 for kids under 12 years of age.

PARKING: Handicapped parking is available at the pavilion. Come early to park. The club has rebuilt the firing range and, in the process, we lost a few spaces for parking. Overflow parking is at the town beach, as well as along the Old East Haddam-Colchester Turnpike east of the club. DO NOT park in front of the farm.
