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.
