On December 23rd Plateau Corvette Club members took one final drive for 2021, Pop-Up, Flash-Dash, Ugly Christmas Sweater optional – pre-Christmas Cruise! A beautiful ride through the curves, hills and hollers of Tennessee countryside. They shared a meal and jolly good times at Monell’s at the Manor in Nashville. They had great weather (topped out at 63 degrees) and beautiful sunny skies all day long! It was a “sleigh-ride” Corvette style! Thanks to those who were able to break away for the day and enjoy some “wind therapy” during the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season!

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for leading and pictures!

Big Thank You to Don for organizing the Corvettes Drivers

At the November 4th 2021 meeting the Plateau Corvette Club celebrated their 10th Anniversary. The club was established on November 3rd , 2011 with the first meeting being held at Dave Kirk Automotive in Crossville. From 2011 the club has grown to over 115 members. The meeting was both a celebration and also a somber moment as the club had a moment of silence for the loss of their club Governor Jack Carkner who was the Charter Governor and remained in that position until his death . Jack was instrumental in helping to establish the Plateau Corvette Club and helping it grow to what it is today. He will be missed.

Thank You to Coy and Kathy for the cake and refreshments.

Thanks to John for the great pictures.
