The King Midget Jamboree Comes To Connecticut!

2017  King Midget Car Club Jamboree  will be held in Old Saybrook, Ct. On August 11,12, &13.

We will be visiting Gilette Castle State Park located in East Haddam,Ct. The castle is the former residence of William Gillette, the actor who played Sherlock Holmes. It is a home (castle) he built and lived in.There are unusual locks and doorknobs and a system of hidden mirrors for surveillance of the public rooms from the master bedroom. It is a beautiful place and it is on the National Register of Historic Places.We will take a ferry ride across the river to get to the castle. On the way back to the hotel we will take a scenic drive. The record  for the most cars on the ferry is 14 Mazda Miatas. Hopefully we can break this record. 

       We also will be going to the Ct.River Museum in Essex, Ct. The museum is a U.S. educational and cultural institution based at Steamboat Dock. The museum focuses on the marine environment and maritime heritage of the Ct. River Valley.
