Polo Show 2013
« on: June 20, 2013, 01:15:53 pm »
I'm guessing most of you guys already know about this but just in case not here it goes!  ;D


The Polo Show – What is it?
The Polo Show is a social event held on 5th-7th July that is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club.

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 BBQ’s!

What’s going on?
The Rolling Road will return on the Saturday, Show and Shine on the Sunday and a club BBQ on the Saturday night. There are also a few other car events going on at Billing at the same time so there should be a few things to wonder round and look at.

Where is it?
The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ 01524 781 453
We have held the event here for a number of years and it’s an excellent venue which really suits the clubs 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 it cost £15 per pitch per night. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people the same as last year - if you have extra cars they may charge you extra.

If you are not camping then the Day Rate is £10 per car.

However there is a change this year. To get these rates you need to supply the booking code of  Duck13 at the time of booking for advance tickets or for the day rate you can show your Membership Card at the gate or if you aren’t members then tell them the discount code.
If you don't have either then you will have to pay £15 per person! This is due to all the other events that are going on the same weekend.

To book please call Billing on 01524 781 453 and be sure you say you are booking for the Polo Show and have the booking code handy.

There aren't stands as such - you just come in and park up.

I'll be there. If all goes to plan I should be turning up on Friday afternoon but I'm not sure yet.

Yeah as per the flyer I would say its a big club meet rather than a full out show.. please don't come expecting a Polo version of Edition 38 or Spring Fest  :D  We do have a few people turning up who will be selling things they are listed here http://www.clubpolo.co.uk/forum/index.php?showforum=120

As Alex has said you just come and park up with the rest of us :)
Saturday we have the Rolling Road and on the Sunday we have the show and shine so really both days! :) And if you do stay over we have the Club BBQ with a free burger/Bratwurst and a Beer!

So I've now cancelled my press car for that week, and the G40 is now insured for business use - means I can take it to the airport on Wednesday full of camping gear - then I'm planning to head straight for Billing when I get back into Heathrow on Friday.
