Pine Mountain, an RVC Outdoor Destination in North Georgia, will be hosting a “Rollin’ Rumble” event Friday through Sunday (Nov. 4-6). Partial proceeds raised at this event will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization with the mission of “honoring and empowering wounded warriors,” according to a news release.

“I’m passionate about helping our returning soldiers and their families and this is a great organization that makes sure they are not forgotten. My goal is to raise more than $5,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project,” said Jim Anderson, general manager of Pine Mountain.

Rollin’ Rumble will be a motorcycle rally with more than 35 vendors setting up displays and giving out information and prizes. Dealers such as Harley Davidson, Honda and Suzuki will be holding a raffle for prizes. There will also be involvement from military recruiters, including a large display from the National Infantry Museum of Columbus, Ga. Additionally, there will be a poker run, swap meet, shopping booths, food, and a band playing Friday and Saturday night for guests to enjoy.

This event is open to the public and tickets can be purchased at the Pine Mountain property. All of the raffle ticket purchases, poker run money and funds raised from other activities will be donated to the Jacksonville, Fla., office of the Wounded Warrior Project.

January 31, 2011 by · Comments Off on RVC Outdoor Destinations Beefs Up Staffs 

RVC Outdoor Destinations has hired general managers at its Pine Mountain, Ga., and Freeport, Fla., properties.

The new managers bring experience in the travel and leisure industry and add to the group of managers RVC already has on board, according to a news release. Additionally, the company is training another team of staff for the opening of their Arkansas resort, Catherine’s Landing, in March.

“We’ve made many changes within the past two months at each and every property, internally and externally,” said Andy Cates, president of RVC Outdoor Destinations. “We’re proud to announce our new managers and believe this will be the biggest year for lucrative growth.”

RVC welcomes Neil Sorrell, manager of Live Oak Landing in Freeport, Fla., to the team. Live Oak Landing opened in November and the resort has just finished construction of additional enhancements. Sorrell has traveled the globe and was responsible for nearly $2,000,000 in sales with Outdoor Resorts of America in 2005.

Jim Anderson, manager of Pine Mountain, an RVC Outdoor Destination, has been involved in the outdoor resort industry for over five years. He worked at an RV park near Yellowstone National Park, where he provided oversight of operations for over 300 sites. After that, he led a restructuring and successful turn-around effort at an RV park in Wyoming.

Catherine’s Landing, the newest addition to the RVC Outdoor Destinations’ properties, will be managed by Aundrea Crary and assistant manager Ian Horgan. Both have experience in the hospitality industry and Crary currently serves on the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce board.

“All of our general managers, including Sheryl Mitchell, general manager of our Carrabelle Beach, Fla., property, have deep experience in the travel and tourism fields,” explained Yale Spina, vice president of operations for RVC Outdoor Destinations. “I am proud to be working with such a strong group of professionals and it doesn’t hurt that they are also great people.”
