I'm trying to organise a little meet up for the Scottish guys.
Setting a provisional date just now of the 9th April.
But we just need to decide what to do.
Crail is on that weekend and Dundee area is usually quite central for most of us, but it is a Ford weekend for them so probably won't be much to look at for us.
We could always just meet up in Dundee and go for a drive, grab some lunch, find some nice parking spots or whatever?
Also just to make a point to any new comers, Club Polo members in Scotland are few and far between so if you want to attend you'll need to travel. Dundee is 100miles away for me alone. We would love to have more regional meets but the numbers don't make that possible so we have to group the whole of Scotland together as one.
Stanford Hall have just confirmed that we have a club stand at this years show at Stanford Hall in Leicestershire on Sunday 30th April 2017.
A pretty laid back and relaxed feeling show, there's always lots to look round and plenty of impressive VW metal from throughout the ages on display (late 40's/early 50's up to present day)
The stand is only ten spaces and I will post your pass out to you the week before, so please only put your name down if you can 100% attend!
Entrance is £10 per person

Here are some videos taken by myself and Ross from last year too. If anyone else has videos from last year we would love to see them :)
Blyton Park isn't a big famous race circuit. What it is is a Driving Centre, with a number of different track layouts. You can still get a lot of speed up, it's wide enough to overtake on the straights, and wide enough on the corners to choose a line and sort yourself out if you get it wrong.
As a track, it's flat, it's smooth, with a vast array of corners, so it suits Polos well. If I was comparing it to an F1 circuit, it would be a smaller version of Catalunya. When we've been before, MoT have run one track layout in the morning, and a tighter, more technical, one in the afternoon, this is great because it keeps it fresh and lets you explore different aspects of track driving and your, and your car's capabilities.
I know on a map it looks like it's in the middle of nowhere, but the truth is, it's in the middle of nowhere, 10 minutes off the motorway, nicely halfway up the country. https://goo.gl/maps/ceVwycLu8FC2
