November 5th Plateau Corvette Club members drove to Chattanooga TN to tour the Amazon Fulfillment Center. Amazon fulfillment centers are large facilities with hundreds of employees, sometimes thousands. Employees are responsible for five basic tasks: unpacking and inspecting incoming goods, placing goods in storage and recording their location, picking goods from their computer recorded locations to make up an individual shipment, sorting and packing orders and shipping. A computer that records the location of goods and maps out routes for pickers plays a key role, employees carry hand-held computers which communicate with the central computer and monitor their rate of progress. Everyone enjoyed this very informative and interesting tour.

After the tour they had lunch at the Boat House restaurant that is on the river in Chattanooga. .

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.
