Paddle and Pizza Party, Quinebaug River, Brooklyn CT
• What we'll do YES, IT IS THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN! Come paddle on the Quinebaug and then join us for our End of the Season Pizza Party at nearby Classic Pizza Brooklyn (597 Providence Rd, Brooklyn, CT--just across Route 6 on Day Street). The Pizza's on us, but you'll have to do your own paddling. Hopefully you've met some friendly Paddle Killingly folks on the water this season and will jump at this opportunity to do a bit of socializing with them and gorge on free pizza. Meet at Riverside Park on Greenway Drive in Brooklyn. From Route 6 go north on Day Avenue. Greenway Avenue is the first right. Follow it around behind the apartment buildings and past the ball fields to the launch site. Putting this address in your GPS should get you to the apartment buildings: 26 Greenway Drive, Brooklyn CT. This is a leisurely out and back paddle. Required equipment: PFD, 10-foot length of rope, whistle, and headlamp/flashlight (for evening paddles). Bring whatever snacks/drinks you wish, but leave room for the pizza! The Quinebaug River runs for almost 60 miles between Brimfield, Massachusetts and Norwich, Connecticut. Riverside Park is at mile marker 42.6 of the river.
