Mk1 Owners Club AGM 2023

Hi all – I will be attending the Mk1 Golf Owners Club show next weekend. Therefore I will not be able to handle orders and answer queries as quick as usual.

My next post will be Wednesday 15th August.

Now in its eighteenth year, the dedicated Annual Gathering for the MK1 Golf Owners Club is to be held at Stratford Upon Avon Racecourse. The weekend will be a gathering of the members and users of the best MK1 Golf club around, together with a variety of attractions, camping facilities, entertainment and trade stands, so we hope you have a weekend to remember. The usual attractions will be on hand. The club’s AGM for the 1600 plus paid members amongst you, the Saturday afternoon road rally (and free commemorative grille badge), a fancy dress disco on Saturday evening, followed by the main event on Sunday. Sunday will see the largest group of Mk1 Golfs displayed in the same place in the UK. Show and Shine categories will be available for entrants to display their cars in. Club merchandise will be available to buy (without postage costs!). Food stalls, auto jumble and trade stands will all be on hand to help the day pass by.

The programme of events will be as follows (subject to change).
