The date for the 2019 Caravan is Aug. 28-31, 2019. This marks the 25th Anniversary of the Museum, Registration for the event at the Museum is now open and can be accessed on the NCM website. If registering, be sure to register each person, not just your car. Each person will have to select which caravan they are planning to travel with, or select NO CARAVAN if not planning on traveling with one. For this event there will be only one NCM registration fee. As an upgrade for 2019, credentials will be distributed before you arrive in Bowling Green by the Caravan Captains, so it is important that you choose which Cara-van Captain you will be traveling with.
If you are planning on traveling with the Atlantic Corvette Caravan (new name for the New Jersey Caravan, which is the one we traveled with last Caravan) you can reach out to John & Mary Nist, the Captains, at email@example.com.
Note: Most members of CCWP that are planning on participating will be joining the Michigan Caravan led by Larry Courtney. Make sure you register with the Museum under the Michigan Caravan so Larry will have all of our information when we meet up with him in Indiana. This way you won’t have to worry about picking up your credentials at the Museum.

Pat Hillyard has planned a trip for the Club to take place September 15th to the 18th or 19th,
2019. It is mainly a driving trip that will cover some routes with great Corvette roads.
The trip will start out from Uniontown Mall in Pennsylvania and travel through Elkins, West
Virginia to Harrisonville, Virginia , and from there get on the Blue Ridge Parkway. There will be
a stop for dinner at the Liberty Station Restaurant in Bedford, Virginia, and we will spend that
first night in Roanoke, Virginia. The next morning the drive will continue on the Blue Ridge
Parkway and then on to Asheville, North Carolina, spending the second night there. The next
morning there will be a tour of the Biltmore Estate and then head on to Blairsville, Georgia and dinner will be at a motorcycle/
sports car resort and spend the night in that area. The next morning will start with a drive on the Gauntlet, a loop of 133
miles of twisty roads through the mountains of northeast Georgia. From there the drive will continue to Tellico Plains, Tennessee
to drive the Cherahola Skyway to Robbinsville, North Carolina and then on to Deals Gap to drive the Tail of the Dragon.
From there the route will go to the Foothills Parkway to head to Pigeon Forge. In Pigeon Forge there will be some options depending
on how long we stay and could include a visit to Dollywood and/or the Titanic and the Floyd Garrett Muscle Car Museum.
The drive home will be on the Super Slabs.
Pat is limiting the trip to 15 cars so if interested, contact him as soon as possible to reserve your spot.

Pat will provide those who are going on the trip with the hotel information as it gets
closer to the time of the trip. He anticipates that the hotel cost will be between
$500 and $650, depending on how long the stay is in Pigeon Forge.
