Plateau Corvette club members attended the East Tennessee Corvette Clubs annually Vette Fest at a new location in Pigeon Forge TN at the Country Cascades Inn. The hotel is newer, has a much larger parking lot and is centrally located in Pigeon Forge within easy walking distance to numerous eateries and shopping. Near perfect weather made for a great weekend for them to view the many Corvettes on display from other Corvette clubs, some coming from as far as Florida, Illinois and Ohio.
