Over the years, the subject of a Point Show or a major community event, catering for all sections of the community, was often mooted, but usually cast aside as being an impossible task. Fortunately, the Point Community Council of the late nineties had the foresight to undertake a Community Appraisal, a survey which embraced most aspects of community life in the present day.  

The seeds which germinated and set the roots of the society can be attributed to the results of that appraisal. This clearly expressed a challenging desire; to create a sustainable community event which, coupled with a sense of belonging to a community entrenched in history, fuelled the energy that created the Point Agricultural Society.

In 2002 a small dedicated group of Rudhachs gathered together and constituted the Society. The subsequently agonised, persevered, organised, begged, borrowed, encouraged and most of all succeeded in bringing the community together for the Inaugural Point Show in August 2003. Since then, the show has continued to go from strength to strength and the Society celebrated the tenth Anniversary show in 2012.
