DC This Week has a FREE TICKET Giveaway to The Commonwealth Polo & Wine Event at The Plains

I like giving away things, especially FREE TICKETS. Great Meadow Equestrian Center, just west of Washington DC, will be the venue for two of Virginia’s favorite pastimes, polo and Virginia wine, combined on one ticket September 12-13, 2009.

I already have my outfit selected for the event and I bought a new hat this weekend to spice it up. And I have TWO FREE TICKETS to a lucky DC This Week reader who answers all of these questions correctly first by Monday, August 31st.

The 24th Annual Commonwealth Cup
is the oldest and, aficionados contend, the most highly attended polo match in the country. Now in its 24th year, The Commonwealth Cup is moving to its new home at Great Meadow Equestrian Center, just west of Washington DC. Here in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge, the event will continue its long-standing tradition of hosting a spirited annual challenge that pits the US Military Combined Services Team against the elite British Combined Services Team for a match to benefit Wounded Warrior initiatives. This marquee match happens at 3:30pm, September 13, 2009. The Wine Festival at The Plains is set to host Tasting Rooms from every corner of the Commonwealth for a grand celebration of the harvest. As wineries from Virginia rack up awards in the world wine scene, select wineries will showcase over 250 locally-grown wines, including many reserve wines that are rarely brought out of the tasting room. Want to experience this event? The first reader to answer all of these questions correctly wins!

1. How many years has The Commonwealth Cup been in existence?

2. What non-profit does The Commonwealth Cup support?

3. Polo originated in what country and in what century?
