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
After the poor turnout this weekend at the rolling road day, we are looking to get feedback on why that was the case?
Basically we ran just 7 cars this year where as previous years have usually seen almost double that if not more. Plus those who usually turn up just to meet up with friends and chew the fat.
So is there anything we can do to get more of you to turn up? Or is a rolling road morning/day something that people just aren't interested in any more?
There are a few things we can do as a club to change the day up a bit.
We could always have it later in the year for example, if most people struggled do to weather, project progress or just purely financial reasons.
We could turn the day into more of a weekend event, maybe a sort of pre Polo Social idea where we camp over night somewhere close by.
These are just ideas we have run amongst the staff so far. But please give us your thoughts.
Also remember a rolling road run isn't just about peak power figures, although that's what everyone brags about. A rolling road graph is very useful for seeing how your car produces its power over the RPM range, for analysing AFR figures during a power run and seeing where improvements are needed to improve driveability not just getting more peak power. Plus the guys at Aldon Automotive are very knowledgeable, based on the run they will be able to give you advise on how they think you could improve the figures.
Anyway, we would like to hear your feedback on the matter and try and get more of you involved for next year.
Scottish Club Polo Meet
Sunday the 11th of February
Stracathro Service Station
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,
