We are excited to announce that the Connecticut Society will host the Society’s 15th annual Virginia
Gold Cup Event. Please join us on Saturday, May 1, 2010 at Great Meadows in the Plains, Virginia. This all-day spring outing in the beautiful rolling Virginia countryside to view a traditional steeplechase is a very popular event and always a sell-out.
Charter buses will take Connecticut Society members and their guests on a 45- minute scenic drive to Great Meadows. Upon arrival, Nutmeggers will receive admission
to the Connecticut Society chalet tent, which will feature a premier view of the action, plus catered food and drink!
The charter buses will leave Washington, D.C. on May 1 promptly at 10:00 a.m., and will depart Great Meadows after the last race.
Opening ceremonies will begin, rain or shine, at 1:00 p.m.. The pony races will begin before noon. In keeping with tradition, proper afternoon dress is requested by the Virginia Gold Cup Association.
Connecticut Society members can join us for
$60 and non-members for $85. You can join us
at the races and become a member of the Society
for a special $75 rate.
Seats will be made available first to paid Connecticut Society members and their guests. Space is limited and always sells out quickly, so please do not delay.
