Locations for The Polo Social (ClubPolo Show) 2017

Recommended Posts

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.

Isnt now the perfect time to join forces with some other smaller clubs? Clublupo for example to try and make something a bit more exciting than 12 mk3s and a 6n in a field.....

Did you go to the right place? Loads more than 13 cars at the social the rest of us went to. Think we have a full spread from a mk1 to the current model.

Indeed, between 40 & 50 cars entered the show and shine alone and in that we had everything from a mk1 to a mk9. I also believe that we would have had a better turnout if it wasn't for the fact the dates were announced very late and people had already made plans that weekend.

Location: Santa Pod Raceway 

What shows do they host?: Too many to name them all.  But the main one that would seem perfect for combining polo social with would be retro show. Usually hosted early July time it would provide all of the facilities needed for the event, and also have more to offer than previous shows. Retro show 2016 was combined with the triumph club gathering which gave them their own camping area and club stand etc. If this was possible on a smaller scale for club polo it would be ideal. Retro show is aimed at older cars, but newer ones are always present every year and still fit into the show, so this would be ideal for the polo scene.

I have talked to a friend, he comes over every year to your island to the bustfest with his T4 and caravan.

 

Three Counties Showground, Great Malvern, England

 

Size of 30 footballfields he said. A proper place for such a show.

 

btw: 96 miles in the west from northampton.

 

 

cheers

Yes Malvern Showground would be fantastic - another place might be Chateau Impney, Droitwich, just off J5 on M5! Easy to get too and they have a hillclimb :) http://www.chateau-impney.com/

Thanks for your suggestions, we are looking into them. Currently we're awaiting a reply from Malvern Showgrounds, I'm not sure that Chateau Impney has camping facilities nothing mentioned on their site, just their expensive hotel rooms :( 

 

A lot of these large showgrounds charge mega bucks to rent their venues, one place we checked out last week wanted £1000/day + vat and another £500/day + vat for the use of the toilets !!! 

 

As bad as Billing was, there was no cost to us for using the field & facilities, they made their money on you paying the camping/Day entry fees.

 

So please keep your ideas coming and we'll see if they will take us.

Santa Pod Raceway is a great site. Maybe get in with Big Bang in April or Bug Jam in July? Both VW events. Not sure how the finances would work.

      We have a fix for our threads here at ClubPolo. If you've used photobucket over the years you would be aware of their T&C's have changed, this has caused an abundant of issues for us, especially on our older topics.

      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.
       
      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!

      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.

      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

      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 return 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 a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars we may charge you extra.
