The Polo Social 2018
The Polo Social, What is it?
The Polo Social is a social event held on 29th JUNE to 1st JULY 2018 that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club. So if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.
This year we are accepting bookings from the Thursday night until the Monday morning.
What to Expect?
A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!
Whats going on?
Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday day, we have booked a double length inflatable assault course this year.
Where is it?
The event is held at Kelham Hall & Country Park, Kelham NG23 5QX
This is the second year we've held it at Kelham and we're returning after a successful 2017 social show.
What do you need?
If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold water supply so bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money.
How much does it cost and how to book?
A pitch is for 1 car & tent for up to 2 adults & 4 children
if you have extra adults/cars there is a £5/night charge per person/car, this will be collected on arrival.
Tickets and prices Tickets can now be booked via the club shop https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/store/category/8-the-polo-social-2018/ The price is £21/Night Paid up members will receive a discount on checkout The discount will end 10 days prior to the start of the event NOTE: REMEMBER TO RSVP
As has become a staple of the Polo Social, we will be holding a Show & Shine competition on the Sunday of The Polo Social
We've kept the trophies from last year so lots up for grabs.
To enter the Show and Shine see Jon or one of the members of staff floating around (normally by the Marquee) and we will get you signed up. Entry is £5 but all of this money will go to charity. So even if you are not bothered about a trophy please still enter your car as the money does go to a really good cause which currently be Macmillan Cancer Support/Cancer Research UK.
The Show and Shine is self-judged so the most deserving cars are decided by the people who enter (and no you can't vote for your own car! ) We also have a People’s Choice award which allows anyone attending the show to cast their vote. To get these slips also see one of the staff.
Overall 1st/2nd/3rd (Self judged by entrants)
Best Wheels/Engine Bay/Interior/Engineering (Staff picks)
People's Choice (Voted by show attendees)
Polodriver.com Award (Chosen by Rich of Polodriver.com)
Because Racecar Award
Please note that entry to the show and shine will ONLY be open until 11.30am and slips must be returned to SNS control by 1pm, this is so we can collate the results in time to do trophies at around 2/2.15pm. Also please don't move your car over to the show field until you've signed up, paid and received your voting form, thank you
The whole weekend is a chilled out and relaxed one and this includes the Show and Shine. The whole point is to have a bit of fun and see some nice Polo's!
The Polo Social is a chilled out club event and we really want to keep it that way. Kelham Hall ALLOW us to host this event at their location but part of this is we abide by some rule. So please take some time to read these. Rules: - No burnouts or drifting : once you are parked up in the field you are expected to leave your car there unless you are going offsite to the shops or have a genuine reason to need to move it. I want to be totally clear - NO Handbrake turns, wheel spinning or reving of engines anywhere on site.
- No loud noise between 11pm and 8am. Think of the people camping next you. Yes they are in tents but this does nothing to stop the noise of music, screaming/shouting/swearing. - No drink driving. Again, sounds stupid but some people seem to think that because you are in a field that it's OK to drive about after ten beers. Kelham Hall is still subject to the laws of the UK and the police will get involved. We have seen people (who were nothing to do with Club Polo) get arrested and carted off in a police van for this in past years. - Dogs are welcome on site. Owners must clean up after their pets. - Bins are provided on-site and you will be given a bin bag by Club Polo staff on entry. Please use these and keep the site as tidy as possible. If you require more bin bags then please ask any Club Polo staff member (until we run out!). - BBQs are allowed on site but please ensure they are raised off the grass. Make sure any BBQs are fully extinguished after use by pouring water on them. Ensure BBQs are not lit right next to tents - tents are very flammable! - Open fires are not allowed! If you see anyone else doing anything you think they shouldn't be doing then please don't hesitate to contact any Club Polo staff. We need your help to make the event run smoothly and to ensure everyone has a good time. Please police your friends if you think the are acting out of order tell them!
The venue has a fully licensed bar, under no circumstances are you permitted to drink your own alcohol inside the venue, outside not a problem
We're currently looking for a new location to hold our yearly 'Polo Show' - The Polo Social.
After speaking to billing today they've decided not to host ANY car shows, Their excuse "Developing the site for more residential caravans" and a letter is going to be sent to all the car clubs explaining this. So, have you been to a car show recently or in the past which you think would be a good location to host our show. Ideally we're looking for camping site/rally field with facilities (washing/toilets/showers) with electrical hook ups.
Please post your suggestions below:
What shows do they host?:
Many thanks, and we look forward to your suggestions.
