June 12th Plateau Corvette Club members took a short drive thru the Cumberland Homestead area. After the drive they drove back to Crossville for a special lunch at Bubba T’s BBQ. The owner really rolled out the red carpet, from closing the restaurant for a “Corvette Only” event, to the “down- home” hospitality and great food.

A Big thank you to John and Reggie for planning the event and Dennis and Carol for leading a fun drive.

That night several club members went to the Palace Theater in downtown Crossville for a Buddy Holly Live show with Kenny James preforming Buddy Hollys greatest songs. What a great way to finish the day!!

Saturday, June 5, Plateau Corvette Club members took a drive on a scenic, curvy ride through the mountains and hills of Tennessee in route to Lake Cumberland State Resort Park in Jamestown Kentucky. They stopped for lunch before hitting the curves and enjoying the beautiful scenery as they made their way back home.

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for putting big smiles on their faces as they drove home. Thanks for the trip and the pictures!

May 21 Plateau Corvette Club members drove to Trooper Island on Dale Hallow Lake in Kentucky. We were given a tour by Camp Director Jonathan Bivens.

Trooper Island Camp was developed by the Kentucky State Police as part of a long range program of public service to the youth of Kentucky: a place where the tensions and turmoil of our everyday lives can be forgotten; and for one week young people can be given a touch of hope and desire of a better tomorrow. Spearheaded by former State Police Director, Colonel James E. Bassett, the idea was to establish a permanent recreational site where trooper and child could share a week long experience. A location was selected in a secluded corner of Dale Hollow Lake near the Cumberland and Clinton County line, where an island was leased from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and a non-profit charitable corporation was formed.

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for a great trip!!

Wednesday March 10 Plateau Corvette Club members took their first drive in 2021. After a year of no drives they were raring to go.  It was a Ice Breakin’ – Covid Bustin PCC spring kick off ride to the beautiful scenic spot! Bald River Falls is a 90 foot high waterfall right next to the road!  It is recognized as one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the region.  Its located in the Tellico Plains vicinity and the road leading up to it is a Corvette lover’s dream!    It is easily accessed and  provides beautiful photographic opportunities. Its was time to get the dust off the engines, and blow out those exhaust pipes!  Its was a beautiful day for driving, comradery, friendship, good times, good eats, good photos and good fun! 

Thanks to Roger and Kathy Johnson for a great drive and great pictures!!
