Fish & Game Club planning ahead for fireworks event
Olson said this year's event, which is open to the public, will be held Saturday night. As part of the organization's annual meeting, various types of fireworks are critiqued, evaluated and examined, with the grand finale being an extensive (and loud) fireworks display at nightfall.Olson, who stressed that the Fish & Game Club is merely the host and isn't involved in the actual planning, said Saturday's event was expected to be much different than last year's.Last year's convention focused on Class B fireworks, which are larger, louder and require special permits and the presence of local firefighters. This year's convention, Olson noted, will focus on Class C fireworks: the same type that are typically sold at local fireworks stores.
Club officials noted that the facility is probably the safest place in the region for such an event, due to its remote location and existing safety features. Still, last year's show, held in late April, drew nearly 200 calls from residents over a two-hour time period, with many of them complaining about the noise or simply expressing concern over where the noise was coming from. Olson said the Fish & Game Club, located on the Litchfield town line, was spending about $1,000 on advertising the event this year, and was also turning to social media to spread the word in advance.
Londonderry Town Manager Kevin Smith said Fire Chief Darren O'Brien has been in contact with members of the Pyrotechnics Association, noting the town had been assured the fireworks wouldn't begin until shortly after dusk.
Those who weren't within viewing distance, however, had some much different thoughts on the matter, several town councilors noted.
