Founded in 2011, the Founders Chapter in Oregon is a group of Caterpillar collectors and enthusiasts young an old who are interested in the history and preservation of old Caterpillar machinery. The Founders Chapter strongly encourages the younger generation to get involved, share information, swap stories, and preserve the history of Caterpillar. Our membership collectively owns over 250 antique Caterpillar machines and every year we proudly host The Great Oregon Steam-Up in Brooks, Oregon.
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.
