Come Early, Big Crowd Expected Tomorrow

As of 8:40 this morning, there were exactly two tailgate spots left for Saturday’s Virginia Gold Cup.  If you don’t have your tickets yet, you need to get moving NOW.

If you do, you might plan to go a little early.  

Yesterday, at a little league baseball game, a high ranking Gold Cup official told us (yes, all information exchanges between high ranking officials happen at baseball, lacrosse or soccer games at this time of  year!), that Saturday’s crowd would be the largest “post recession” crowd to date.

That’s awesome, and Great Meadow is designed to accommodate you and “50,000 of your closest friends.”

A great day and a big crowd makes for an awesome Gold Cup, but like all major events with a gigantic crowd, a little planning makes the day go smoother.  

So try to arrive a little early...

...And bring that sunscreen.
