On a cold and blustery day the Plateau Corvette Club members held The Jack Carkner Memorial Rallye as a way to honor, remember and recognize the contributions that Jack made to our club. Club members participated in a Rallye that consisted of written clues that they had to find the answer to while driving along a specified route. Contestants with the most correct answers and the best Poker Hand were declared the winners. The final destination was the Timberloft Restaurant in Gordonsville, TN .
