The 2018 Stanley Cup Tour Stops At The Salamander Resort In Middleburg, Virginia

The Stanley Cup is back in town, and Monday night it spent time at the Salamander Resort in Middleburg, Virginia. The resort is owned by Sheila Johnson, who is vice president of Monumental Sports & Entertainment, and is also a part owner of the Washington Capitals. 

Johnson sent out a public invitation earlier in the week offering the first 50 groups of up to five people a chance to grab a photo with the Capitals Cup. The event also collected items for local charities, as well as held a variety of programming, including “Rock the Red” in the Gold Cup Wine Bar and a hockey shootout competition. All attendees were encouraged to wear red.

“It is so important for me to publicly display this amazing trophy and to celebrate the Washington Capitals’ amazing achievement with Middleburg,” Johnson said in a prepared statement. “I thank the NHL for allowing us to bring the Stanley Cup to our town, and I’m thrilled that the Loudoun County community and our resort team members have an opportunity to create memories, while also collecting items for two worthy causes.”

Guests started lining up at 6 PM on Monday, with the doors finally opening at 7PM. The first 50 groups of up to 5 people started taking their pictures with the Cup at 8:45p.

Here are a few Photos from this evening’s event:
