More good news for spectators at the Green Spring Valley Hounds Point to Point on Saturday, March 27 at Shawan Downs!  The Governor’s latest Executive Orders allow outdoor venues such as Shawan Downs to operate at up to 50% of full capacity.

    There are two parking options now.  A premium parking pass continues to be available at Point-to-Point Tickets (gsvhounds.com)  for $250.  The parking will be on the level platform overlooking the racecourse with superb views.  The entrance is at the main gate on Shawan Road, and purchasers will receive their admission credentials via email the week before the race. Alternatively, there is a parking pass available for $50 with entrance off of Falls Road, and parking up at the top of the hill above the fence. These spectators would then takes their chairs, etc. and walk down the hill to view the races from the slope just north of the racecourse, or fan along the rail west towards Preservation Point (towards John Brown's Store). Because of this latest State change, just two weeks before the meet, these tickets are only available for purchase at the gate on race day for cash or check.  Please bring exact change as this money/checks will be dropped into a box with the attendants at the entrance.

   GSVH will now be able to honor Life Founding Member parking passes issued by the Land Preservation Trust. These attendees will enter at the main entrance off of Shawan Road.

   Masks are required by the latest Order of the Governor, to be worn at all times, please. Physical distancing is encouraged. Please note that only specific race Officials will be allowed onto the Steward Stand and Tower (no Owners/Trainers/Spectators please). Also, the race Paddock will be located by the stables area, yet we encourage spectators to remain on the spectator hillsides. 
See you on the 27th !!

There are several ways that you can support this event:
