On the weekend of August 24th Plateau Corvette Club members attended the Corvettes at Carlisle Car show held at the Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle PA. There were over 5000 Corvettes in attendance plus a chance to see the new 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette. They were able to get up close and even sit in the new Corvette. No we did not get to drive one!!

August 31 dawned bright and sunny.  19 cars and 34 people assembled in Crossville for a trip to Rugby, TN.  Just over an hour later we arrived.  Lunch was at the Harrow Road Cafe.  Those who wished to shop or visit the 1890’s print shop could do so.  The historical film and following tour of Rugby provided some interesting insight into a very unique piece of Tennessee history.  A number of members stopped for ice cream at the Cumberland Mountain General Store in Clark Range.  A tasty way to interrupt the drive back home.

On Tuesday July 30 th Plateau Corvette Club members drove to McCloud Mountain Restaurant in Duff TN. Unique in its location and views, McCloud Mountain Restaurant is perched atop the Cumberlands with a panoramic view that stretches as far as the Smoky Mountains.

Mt. Cloud is located on a 1300 acre tract of land at an elevation of 2700 feet, atop the Cumberland Mountains. It contains what is believed to be one of the longest chains of solid rock in the South.  From the top you can get a breathtaking view of the valley below, Norris Lake, The Great Smoky Mountains, and Knoxville, Tennessee
