As we posted earlier, more details are now available for this event. Here's the update:
In addition to the regular polo match, there will be a separate Wine Tent. The cost for admission to the Wine tent is $55, and the proceeds benefit Bucks County SPCA. It's a big annual event (7th year), and looks quite well done. You get your own tasting glass to take home, and you can use it to get unlimited wine tastings from various vineyards in the Wine Tent. They'll also have food samples from a dozen restaurants, including Villagio, Marsha Brown, and others. There will be live music and a silent auction under the tent as well.
Your $55 tent admission will cover entrance to the grounds as well. You do NOT have to do the wine tent. You can still pay $10 per carload and have a separate tailgate party separate from the Wine Tent.
Please update your RSVP with whether you're interested in the Wine Tent, or just a tailgate party. I am planning to do the Wine Tent. You can get your tickets and read more about the wine Tent here: http://wandp2012.eventbrite.com/
Note - you can also purchase your wine tent tickets at the event itself. They're convinced they won't sell out.
Just about every Saturday from May thru October, an official US Polo Association match goes on at Tinicum Park in Bucks County. This is on River Road, between New Hope and Frenchtown.
There will be tailgating - we'll set up a tent, and everyone is expected to bring a food or beverage item to share. Also bring a chair.
The charge to get into the field is $10 per carload. Feel free to carpool.
At the Sept 15th event, the theme is "Wine & Polo", and there will be a special Wine Tent - here is the info on that http://wandp2012.eventbrite.com/

The event is both family and dog friendly, so feel free to bring kids and dogs.
Until I hear otherwise, I assume the event goes as follows:
- Tailgate starts around noon
- Wine Tent opens at 1
- Match starts at 2
- At Halftime everybody goes out and stomps the divots
- Match is over around 4:30ish
This is a joint meetup with the BuxMont Social Singles. Please RSVP only to one group.
