Wednesday, June 30th, the Plateau Corvette Club “Cruised along to celebrate this day in history”  – June 30, 1953 – the Birth of the Corvette. They enjoyed the curves, the sun and the comradery of friends getting together to celebrate  the Corvette and just have fun! They had lunch at Casa Grande in Gainesboro which everyone said they enjoyed. They cruised with more curves and beautiful scenery on the way back home – and, of course – a stop for ice cream at Cream City in Cookeville.

Thanks to Roger and Kathy for a great drive and pictures.

July 9th Plateau Corvette Club members took a leisurely drive down Hwy 70 and 55 to the Jack Daniels distillery, Their they took the dry tour and after the tour they had lunch at the Twisted Oak Restaurant outside of Smithville, TN. As they say, through rain, wind, sleet and snow, the Plateau Corvette Club will start and finish their Drive and Dine commitment.

Thanks to Don and Dee for a fun trip and Claudia and Dom for the pictures

A little rain didn’t dampen their drive

Saturday June 26th Plateau Corvette Club members went on “Norm and Gail’s Sparta Adventure”, it was a well attended drive and dine – with nine cars and fourteen members who cruised the scenic backroads together, ultimately arriving at a Plateau Corvette Club favorite destination – Calfkiller Brewery. Although they were not able to take a tour (dang! All sold out ) – the group spent a little time and enjoyed not only the beautiful day, but friendship, camaraderie. After leaving the Calfkiller, they enjoyed a short, scenic drive to Yannis Grill, also in Sparta. The food there is always good!

Thanks to Norm and Gail for a fun drive and great pictures!!

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!!

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!!

The Plateau Corvette Club will hold their Annual Cruise In on June 19th 2021 in Fairfield Glade TN.
