Tuesday, January 24th several Plateau Corvette Club members took a Cruise and headed towards East Tennessee to the Hot Rod’s Diner in Alcoa near Maryville. This is one of the best places to eat in the area!

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for leading the way and the photos.


Plateau Corvette Club’s Inaugural Drive of  2023!   We took “Roger’s Route” (a/k/a “The long route”) – 11 Cars, 19 members, 1 dam, 2 waterfalls, 2 state parks, hundreds of curves and lots and lots of smiles!   It was a great way to start the New Year and the 2023 driving season.  

They stopped at the new restaurant at Fall Creek Falls – no buffet anymore but the food was delicious and plentiful and service was spot on!    If you haven’t been to the new restaurant yet and would like to try it out, its worth the drive!  

The ride home was nice, curvy and scenic too!  Ended up at the Dairy Queen in Monterey for ice cream, of course!! 

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for leading and the great photos !!

OH OH !! Watch the road!!
From the Plateau Corvette Club, Happy Holidays

Tuesday November 22, 35 Plateau Corvette Club members in 23 cars got together for a Pre-Turkey Day Romp. The day was filled with fun times, big smiles and some beautiful Tennessee roads. We started the day spreading some “Get Well Soon Vibes” as we paraded by the houses of our three members who are all recovering from recent surgery. After the parade, we headed over to Gondola Pizza and Steak House where we enjoyed, conversation, laughter and a nice lunch together. Once we were finished with lunch, several in the group broke off and some of them headed to the hills for some back road Cruisin’ heading to Wooden’s Apple House for dessert. 

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for leading and the photos.

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 .
