Directions to Crow Island
Repost of directions from last year.
They got me there last year.

Stow, Crow Island--------->Directions from West - 495 to the Bolton/Stow (Rt 117) exit, head east on 117 for about 5-6 miles until you go past the Stow Shopping Center, notice "Ye Old Beef & Ale" on right and then "Steppingstone Day Care". Right after Steppingstone, the road will T and you'll see a sign for Stowaway Golf Course, make the right. Follow for a mile or so, over the bridge to the chain link fence. Make right, follow dirt road until very end.

From the city or 128: Take either 27 if your N/S or 117 (from Waltham) through Maynard and get onto 117W, past Erickson's Ice Cream (voted Best of Boston!) and then another 1/2-3/4 mile. Look for Stowaway golf sign on left.

Thanks Bluefin.

One addition:

If you're coming down 128 south take Rt 2 west to the forth traffic light (just past Arena Farms on your right) and take a left. Follow it to the next traffic light and make a right onto 117. Then follow Bluefin's directions from there.

Nah, no PM required. I'll just harrass you at the fun fly for bringing out the hanger queens and then bringing them home with the blades still dust covered.

At least my spelling is better than Mckoi's.

Saturday. Mostly cloudy. Showers likely in the morning. Areas of fog in the morning. Highs in the mid 70s. Southwest winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain 70 percent.

So it sounds like by late morning, any
questionable weather will move out and
Sunday looks fantastic

Photos are up at, http://www.massheli.com

I hope everyone had a good time. We did very well this year, there were no water rescues required. As you can see in the photos Saturday was a lot of fun even though the weather didn't want to cooperate.

Now it's on to SMRCHA on July 10th and 11th. See ya there.
