Clam Competitions




The East Hampton Town Trustees held its annual clam chowder and biggest clam competitions Sunday, October 13, which featured bivalves harvested by many local fishermen. The best clam chowder was made by Brad Roman. The competition, held at the Trustees building in Amagansett, was judged by Charlotte Sasso, Dante Sasso, Bryan Futerman, Zachary Cohen, and Chris Walsh. Don Fromm was named the winner of the largest clam competition with his 2.6-pound clam from Napeague. The second, third, and fourth-place titles were all bestowed upon Clint Bennett, with his largest clam weighing in at 1.8 pounds.
