So this is a thread for everyone to offload their photos from the show to. 2019 saw us having to deal with one of the hottest day so far this year, which lead to possibly the best gathering we have ever had on a saturday night, with 40 or so people gathered to suffer an eclectic mix of music and 2 men attempt to reach the high note in Tenacious D's ''Fuck Her Gently''. While our general turnout was a bit on the low side for the Sunday S&S, the general tone of the weekend was one of a group of friends and fellow Polo enthusiasts in a field looking at Polo's. So fill this thread full of photos and videos to show how much of a good time we all had and entice others to join us next year in 2020 for our 20th anniversary Note: if your photos are on Google Photos then you will need to create a individual link for each photo and then convert them to an embeddable link on this website: https://ctrlq.org/google/photos/?_ga=2.2379127.653502450.1562096982-604220551.1562096982
The Polo Social, what is it? The Polo Social is a social event held on 28 June ~ 01 July 2019 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. 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! What’s going on? Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ to return on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday daytime. Where is it? The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ Tel: 01524 781 453 We have held the event here for a number of years before our recent departure to Kelham Hall, and it’s an excellent venue which really suits the club’s event. There is food available on site and there are also a couple of pubs and a Fish & Chips shop in walking distance. There is also the Mini-Golf, Karting and a leisure centre with a pool. 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 but there is a cash machine by the entrance to the site. How much does it cost and how to book? If you are camping the rate is £21/night. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars they may charge you extra. If you are a paid up member there is a discounted rate see this https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/357805-polo-social-2019/ To book head to http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ and click book now. Then please select Shelduck 2 as this is our field. If you are camping for just the Saturday night then its £21 per pitch. You can book this online as per above but you might not be able to select Shelduck 2. Please select another field but just pitch up in the Shelduck 2 field with the rest of us when you arrive as there will be loads of room. The day rate is £10 per car.
After two years at Kelham Hall you asked if there was any chance to return to Billing Aquadrome, with this in mind @jonPDpolo contacted Pure Leisure HQ (Billing Aquadrome head office) after a few emails, a meeting was organised with the new event managers at Billing and in early September @jonPDpolo and myself went and met the new managers, things looked good, they were very keen to have us back, a few more emails and a draft contract was available, there were a few errors in this and some clarification needed from the new event managers and after not hearing from them, I went over to try and see them eventually after three visits I saw them and the clarifications were sorted and the contract was completed. So we have confirmed the dates for this years Social, the weekend of 28th June - 1st July We are returning to Billing Aquadrome 👍 🙂
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 myself (look out for the beard) 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. Trophies Available: 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 IMPORTANT STUFF!!! 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!
