PLEASE NOTE This is an earlier date than in past years!
WHAT TIME DOES IT START? Festivities begin at noon . . . although the tickets say "serving until 2 p.m." we'll be there until the food is gone.
TELL US ABOUT WHAT WE ARE HAVING TO EAT. Planked and filleted (that's right, we have already taken care of the bones) shad dinners are a prized culinary treat. The technique - believed to have originated with native tribes - is where shad is nailed to large boards and baked in front of a pit of hot coals, and it is a long held New England tradition.
But there will be plenty of other great things including chowder, venison chili, a variety of cold salads, chicken, hot dogs, watermelon and more. You won't be going away hungry.
Food allergies? Let us know before we serve you.
WHAT ELSE? Stay and play horseshoes, meet up with old friends; get acquainted with new folks in town; enjoy the atmosphere and the view.
Advance tickets: Adults $20; over 65 $15; under 5 - $6
Day of event: Adults $25; over 65 $20; under 5 $8 ~ a bargain at the price!
PARKING: Handicapped parking is available by the pavilion. Come early to park. Come early because parking can get hectic. Please follow instructions from the parking lot team! Trucks park down by the target range and fish pond. Overflow parking is at the town beach, as well as along the Old East Haddam-Colchester Turnpike east of the club

Mountain View Sporting Camp
23 March 2016
The goal of these organizations is to coordinate an annual effort to pick up the streets, lakes, streams, and other public access areas in the Town of East Haddam. Would your organization or individuals in your organization be willing to participate? We are in search of families and groups to pick up sections of the streets in which they live on. Is there a section of town that you or your group would like to take over the stewardship? Could you and your neighbors adopt a street?
At the conclusion of this pick up day, an invitation is extended to all participating to a picnic at the Moodus Sportsmen’s Club starting at noon and ending at 2 pm. Traditional picnic items such as hot-dogs, baked beans, coffee and iced tea and lemonade will be served along with the seasonal bounty only a sportsmen’s club could serve. At this time we can inventory the items collected and discuss solutions to reduce these problems. We also will have educational information about the Town’s natural resources and outdoor recreational opportunities that are available to all.
19 February 2016
Last week's freeze made us cautiously optimistic
But this morning driving along both Moodus Reservoir and Bashan Lake with the ice all but disappeared, we knew it wasn't happening. So we are packing up the tip ups and stowing the augers away until next year.
In the meantime we still encourage to e-mail us at email@example.com to be added to our electronic mailing list of upcoming special events
We look forward to seeing you at April's East Haddam Town Wide Earth Day as well as our annual Shad Bake in June. [that's the Sunday after Father's Day]
