Friday, May 13th was our first ever “Friday the 13th Hooky Cruise”  14 members in 8  Corvettes took the day off, left their work behind, and went out for a curvy cruise along some beautiful Tennessee roads while they played “hooky”.  It was a beautiful sunny day, and the roads didn’t let us down.  However, as we got to one of our favorite sections of curves along TN 108 (a really nice place to enjoy the road, if you know what I mean) we got behind a fully loaded logging truck who wouldn’t move over OR even do close to the speed limit!  It was the consensus of the group that the guy most likely didn’t have brakes and probably shouldn’t have even been out on the road!!!

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for a Great Drive!!

On Saturday, May 7 a small group (5 cars, 10 people) of adventurous Plateau Corvette Club members dodged the raindrops in search of the sunshine as we made our way along some curvy Tennessee backroads in route to Lake Cumberland State Park, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch and beautiful scenery despite the clouds! The rain eventually stopped and everyone had a smile on their face as we hit the switchbacks and cruised through the curves.  After lunch, we made our way to  US 127 where some headed for home and others made the stop at the Cumberland Mountain General Store for ice cream, of course!  All in all, it was a fantastic day behind the wheel sharing great times with great friends!

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for a fun Drive!!

What Curved Road!!

Following the meeting on Thursday, May 5th  49 of our members toured the Crossville Model Train Club Display set up in the Mall.  With over 4500 square feet in operating layouts of 5 different gauges with realistic scenery to match the gauges, scavenger hunts and buttons to press on the displays to “make things happen”, it would be easy to spend an hour or two to see everything.  (LOTS of different sizes of trains and tracks!!)  It was very interesting, informative and entertaining!  – hosted by Sam along with several other volunteer train club members present to help answer questions and assist with the tour.   It was very informative and entertaining!

Thanks to Sam for the tour and Kathy for the write up and pictures!!

On Friday April 29th 7 Corvettes carrying 13 Plateau Corvette Club Members travelled curvy, scenic back roads under beautiful skies to Bowling Green, Kentucky. Sunshine and blue skies were with us most of the day except for about 5 minutes of rain after our “stretch your legs” rest and bathroom break. They stopped for lunch at Rafferty’s – touted as the #1 restaurant in the Bowling Green area.

 They were present for the presentation of proceeds of the Kentucky 1 lap to both the Museum and Trooper Island.  This year’s proceeds totaled $79,000.00 – which will be split 50/50 between the Museum and Trooper Island.  Trooper Jonathon Biven was present, along with his Commander, to receive Trooper Island’s portion of the proceeds. 

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for a fun drive!!
