Pole climbing involves racing up an 80ft pole as quickly as possible and is one of the arena highlights.  Pole climbers receive free entry to the Show for themselves and one other, free camping and the chance of winning prize money.  There is attendance money for those who apply early enough.  There is also a free barbecue following the Show on the Wednesday evening for everyone who enters.
