Recommended Posts


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
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

Cos it is still a long time till the next Polosocial, for the youngsters and those who also didn't have seen that yet, here is my movie-recommendation for a cold wintersday. Done in scotland and middleengland a long time ago.

Once upon a time.......   


"The Polo Show - 3 Days, 1179 Miles and 190 Liters of Premium Unleaded"

(Follow the hyperlink above the cover to watch the movie.)


... and they lived happily ever after.



(movie rating "GT" = Suitable for people with an unhealthy interest in polos only)




Thx again to the scottish guys M&M, in case they are still alive.

OK everyone, we have confirmed the prices with Kelham Hall and you can now book your stay via our shop https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/store/category/8-the-polo-social-2018/ the standard rate is £21/night, this is for 2.adults & 4 children 1 car, 1 tent/caravan/motorhome, the current rate @Kelham is £25/night so you are already getting a discount and fully paid members will receive a further discount on booking up to 10 days before the event, after this the same £21/night will apply, there are some extras that will be collected at the gate £5/night for additional adults, £5/night for additional cars & £2/night for dogs

Day visitors on any day £5/car for 2 adults & 4 kids, extra adults £5 & the same £2 for dogs


Please do not try and book direct with Kelham as you will be charged the full £25/night and due to our PLI insurance will not be permitted to camp with the main show area, you will be in the general camping site..


This year we are accepting bookings from the Thursday night till Sunday night, but on those days there will be nothing planned in the way of entertainment and anyone staying on those nights might be asked to assist in the putting up/dismantling of the club marquee.


This year due to so many people "forgetting their passes" we will not be posting the passes out, they will be on the gate collection

      Scottish Club Polo Meet
      Sunday the 11th of February 
      Stracathro Service Station 
      DD9 7PX
      All welcome, new or old members. We normally have a chat around the cars for a while, then get some grub, then go for a drive. Brechin is just over the road so there are plenty of options for food. 
      Hope to see you there,

      It's time to see if all your engine mods have worked, see how much BHP/Torque you've gained or lost !!
      If you've not been before? It's a great way to catch-up with members new & old. Aim to get there by 08:30 onwards with the runs starting around 10:00
      Your car will be secured to the rolling road and one of the Aldon staff will run it up to find the max power, you'll then get a print-out of the Max BHP & Torque, all for £ 15 for Club members & £ 25 for Non members. 
      There is normally hot food available, bacon butties etc and when all runs are finished we retire to a local pub
      If you want to see what you've got under your right foot, put your names down below ( copy & paste )  Priority will be given to Club members with Polo's !

      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
      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!
