Is that piece of artillery left over from the war between Torrington and Winsted a few years back?

Now, before you all run off thinking you know exactly where this is, let me give you a little history.

1. yes, its a lake
2. prior to the 1950's there was a pavillion and skating rink here which hosted some of the greatest big bands of the '30s & '40s. One in particular was Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians. Mr. Waring is the person who invented the blender (Waring Blender) and bought a nearby hardware manufacturing company (a few hundred feet from this site) to beging mass producing his product. The product was continuosly manufactured here until the early '70s when the plant moved to another town to the southeast.

on a beautiful day no less.

So I roll into the parking lot and this guy sitting in his car is eyeballing me. I'm thinking this guy is going to give me shit about riding a "dirt bike" and I'm going to give him shit about it not being a "dirt bike" and all of sudden he says are you playing tag-o-rama? Holy shit! Its a revolution! Everyone is playing tag-o-rama!

So get off your dead arses and get out there. I only saw one other bike last night. Where the hell are all of you?
