Welcome to our OC/OC website!
OC/OC  is  the 136th  chapter  of  the

 Last year the OC/OC Chapter Celebrated its "Ceramic/Silver" anniversary!
In 1990 OC/OC was started, and while it went dormant for a couple of years, it was resurrected under Jim Friesen and Vern Hastings leadership in 1995 - hence Ceramic for 20 years since resurrection and Silver for 25 years since its founding.
THREE of our members have been nominated for the BCCA's HALL of FAME!

JIM FRIESEN, who has put so much of his time and energy into our chapter.

JOHN FATURA, who welcomed our International friends during the 2nd BCWC
KEITH BENNETT, who leads the HOPping collectors from the land of oz!

  The Voting period has concluded - we will toast the announced
winner at CANvention 47 during the Banquet! 

Our chapter has a membership of about 130 members who hail from more than 20 countries around the globe.  We focus on collecting at least One Can from every One of the Countries that has ever brewed and canned their own beer... and many of us will also collect cans made for sale in countries, islands, provinces, territories, ... and almost any other category we can think of.
It is a very taste-full hobby!

This website is always under construction: latest update August 2nd, 2016 .  Eventually it will contain links to all of the past newsletters, a compendium of the first cans known from places around the world, and many other items of interest to those who delight in collecting beer cans from across our "blue marble".

WARNING - Go-daddy has made the decision to "upgrade the website software which means that soon this website will have to be re-built - something that could take some time form the volunteers who contribute to it - sorry for the inconvenience.
