On Wednesday, May 31st, Plateau Corvette Club Members Jerry & Marsha hosted a cruise to Hog Wild BBQ in Tompkinsville, Kentucky. Four Corvettes carrying 8 members met up at the Shell Station in Monterey on a picture perfect day to head out and get some curve therapy! Jerry told us at the driver’s meeting that he’d picked out the curviest roads that he could find on the route he put together to travel there and back, and let me tell you he wasn’t kidding! Beautiful roads (even some roads that we’d never been on before) with big sweeping curves made up the majority of this route, which was very scenic too. Everyone had a fantastic time and enjoyed the friendship and comradery that goes along with getting out and having fun together!

The restaurant was busy (and very good too)!

The day ended in Cookeville with ice cream at Cream City! Enjoy the photos! Thank you to Jerry & Marsha for putting this great day together!


June 2nd several Plateau Corvette Club members took a slow , careful, scenic drive for those with “OLD CARS” to Lilly Bluff Park where they took a short hike to the Bluff Overlook, then off to Brushy Mountain Prison Wardens Table for lunch in a prison cell.

Thanks to John and Reggie for leading! Thanks to Pam and Todd for the photos.

Saturday May 27th there was also the Downtown Crossville Cruise In on Main Street. A few club members also attended this show to make it a double header for car shows that weekend.


Saturday May 27th Plateau Corvette Club members attended the Lake Tansi Memorial Day car show. There were crafters, vendors, bounce house for the kiddos and yummy food! Great weather with plenty of shade trees to relax under.

Thanks to Sam and Lee for leading and taking the pictures

Sunday May 21 Plateau Corvette Club Members enjoyed their annual spring picnic at the Cumberland Mountain State Park. Food was pot luck with all members bring their favorite food or desert. The weather was great and a Corn Hole tournament was held after lunch. Congratulations to Cindy and Coy who were crowned Cornhole Champs!

Thanks to John and Reggie for arranging the picnic. Thanks to all for the great photos.

New Corn Hole Champs!!

SATURDAY, MAY 13TH, 2023  Plateau Corvette Club members headed to the Nashville Superspeedway to drive their “Vettes” on the track! They were able to drive three laps around the track behind a pace car. Proceeds will benefit The Nashville Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities and Easter Seals. After their drive they traveled to Sammy B’s in Lebanon for lunch before hitting the curves to head back home.

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for leading the group!!

The Sun did not shine, it was too wet to play.
We didn’t let that stop us that nasty, wet day!

It was Monday, May 8th, the date that we’d set –
Trooper Island adventure was calling – we jumped in the Corvette!

We headed out, down the road, the sky cloudy and grey
enroute to meet our friends, who wanted to get out and play!!

We arrived at the meeting place with many already there,
including Trooper Jonathan and his dog, who looked like a bear!!

16 Corvettes (17 counting KSP Trooper Jonathan) and 1 steel car braved the elements to get out for the day.

When they arrived at Trooper Island they got to the boat ramp and the ferry awaited for the ride to the island.  Everyone parked their cars and boarded ready for transport across the lake. 

After a delicious lunch Jonathan gave a really nice talk about the history of Trooper Island and what they do there.  He answered questions and explained all about the program and how it helps underprivileged children of Kentucky.  Then he gave a guided tour of the Island, which was really nice.  They saw the inside of the Chapel and the inside of one of the boys cabins (holds 22 boys) and then they toured the camp counselor’s cabins too. 

After their visit off they went – cruising the curves and seeing the beautiful Tennessee Countryside!  It was a perfect day with friends that ended, of course, with Ice Cream! 

May 2nd, Plateau Corvette Club members enjoyed a beautiful day for a Corvette Cruise!  They met under sunny skies in Cookeville and headed out to Campione’s Taste of Chicago in Goodlettsville, Tennessee in a “parade” of 13 Corvettes carrying 25 of our members and their guests. On the way there they saw some pretty quirky sights on the side of the road – a chopped school bus, a Giant Muffler Man – (Route 66 style), but they all thoroughly enjoyed the Route that Roger mapped out for them.  It was the perfect blend of twisties, big sweeping curves and the beautiful hills and valleys that Tennessee is famous for. Once they got to Campione’s they enjoyed the true “taste of Chicago” – some members had an Italian Beef sandwich and some of them experienced a true “Chicago Dog” complete with  bright neon green Chicago relish and dill pickle! On their way back they stopped at Tennessee’s Historic Rock Castle – built from 1784 – 1796 in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Then ended the day with Ice Cream at Cream City in Cookeville, where they shared smiles, laughter and great memories of another perfect day together, good times and good friends!

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for leading.

Tuesday May 2nd several Plateau Corvette Club members took a scenic drive to Goodlettsville TN for lunch at Campiones Taste of Chicago for some delicious Italian food.
