The California Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds has announced that it has created a new award in honor of industry leader Bob MacKinnon to replace the Stan Martin Memorial Award, which has been CalARVC’s highest service award for nearly 40 years.
CalARVC President Darrell Sisk presented MacKinnon with the Bob MacKinnon Award Sept. 29 during CalARVC’s fall board meeting, one day after the association’s RV Park Day event at Rancho Jurupa Park in Riverside, Calif.
MacKinnon initially served on the CalARVC board from 1995 to 2002, when the association was known as the California Travel Parks Association (CTPA). He served on the association’s executive committee as vice president in 1996 and 1997. He also served as chairman of CTPA’s marketing committee for several years.
