CT/RI Chapter: Go Carting & Brewery Tour & Dinner @ Foxwoods Resort Casino
Apr 24 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Join the CT/RI chapter of the MMA Alumni Association for their April meeting at Foxwoods Resort Casino. First up is go cart racing at Monza World Class Karting. Go-carters need to commit by April 10th so we can reserve a spot on the track and get the preferred pricing. Each race is $25 with a minimum of 6 people racing. If we don’t get enough racers then the price goes up a little but not much. Anyone doing carting needs to get there for 5:30 for orientation and setup which takes about 30 minutes tops. Please be punctual as carting starts for 6:00 and they don’t wait.

If go carts are not your thing, no problem as you can watch through a full course length viewing window while other alumni race each other around the track! Come by at 6:00 and watch the action!

Secondly, we are getting a special private tour of the Stony Creek brewery (at Foxwoods) arranged just for us! Groups will be 5 at a time and get a behind the scenes look at the brewery and its inner workings. Dinner will follow after the tour (location TBD).
