Members belong to the national Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owners Club. Once you’ve joined ACMOC, let our chapter know you want to be included. Members contribute to Chapter 15 events by transporting rare equipment and volunteering talent. You’ll see C.L. Best and Benjamin Holt tractors, the precursors to the Caterpillar’s dotting the hills and valleys. Our collectors showcase more, but you’ll need to attend to understand the unique approach to collecting in these parts. Do you want to know more about the history of Caterpillar from collectors, published authors, machine operators and mechanics? This is the place.
ACMOC is pleased to administer three scholarships this year: the ACMOC Scholarship, the Alan Smith Memorial Scholarship and the Glen Ghilotti Memorial Scholarship. These scholarships are available to members, children or grandchildren of members in good standing of the Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owners Club aged 25 or below who are enrolled or accepted in an accredited technical school, college or university studying agricultural studies, construction engineering, manufacturing, mechanical engineering or other heavy equipment industry fields of study.

There has been much discussion between ACMOC leadership and the show organizers with Chapter 9. It has been agreed that we all have a concern with this show location not being an existing show with its own existing attendees and infrastructure. This leads us to another agreed upon concern that the necessary spectator number needed to make this show a success might not be feasible. Shows are expensive to put on and that, coupled with today’s raising costs, ACMOC, Chapter 9 and the show organizers in Laramie, WY have all agreed that it is best to forgo a National Show in 2022. This however does not mean that the opportunity to visit Chad Enyeart's place and his collection in Laramie is gone. We will have a member’s event at Chad’s place in the future. We wish to share this with the membership so that you have time to cancel any travel plans that you may have already arranged. We are very sorry to announce this, but we feel this is what's best for the club during these challenging times.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS - SATURDAY DECEMBER 5TH, 2020 @ 12PM - LOCATION: The California Agriculture Museum 1958 Hays Lane - Woodland, CA 95776.
