Description:  The National Corvette Museum has announced the 2024 National Corvette Caravan will be held on Aug 29th thru Aug 31st. Corvette Club of Utah will be part of the Northern Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska Caravan. Our Caravan Captain is Kevin McBride from Wyoming. The Caravan Captain will plan the route and stops for the caravan from Salt Lake City to Bowling Green, Kentucky. CCU may or may not travel with the caravan. It has done both in the past. CCU will designate a Caravan Co-Captain who will coordinate CCUs participation with the Caravan Captain.

You must register for the Caravan through the museum to receive your caravan credentials and the club website. Registration with the Corvette Museum. Registration with the National Corvette Museum for the2024 Caravan. You can register at the NCM website by clicking HERE During your registration process there is a drop-down box to the right to pick which caravan you are going to be with. The museum has had a problem putting High Plains Caravan in the drop-down list. They told me to have my participants use the Mountain States option. This will automatically send your credentials to me so you will have them before you arrive at the museum. I know its odd, but they cannot seem to straighten it out for us. The NCM provides the Caravan Captain with roster of their Caravan Participants so they can communicate with the participants. You need to sign-up with CCU so the CCU Co-Captain can account for you and take care of you. Signup with CCU is available now. If you are interested, please use the sign-up button above so we have an idea how many participants we will have. Once that is completed you need to make your hotel reservations.

Kevin McBride says:
I have not booked book any rooms in Bowling Green because the prices were outrageous to me. If you wish to stay in Bowling Green, you can look on your own or the other caravans might have a room or two available closer to the event. I will keep all of you informed as they appear.

Meanwhile during the 2019 caravan several of us stayed out of town at a state resort in Chrystal, Ky which was a good choice for us. Several of us plan on returning there I was unable to make a block for this location but here is the information.

Wednesday thru Sunday Aug 28th 31st Dale Hollow Resort Chrystal Ky.

Prices vary; $134.94 Wednesday and Thursday and Friday and $188.00 for Saturday.
