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

OC/OC started in 1990, and while it went dormant for a few years, it was resurrected under 
Jim Friesen's and Vern Hasting's leadership in 1995 and now has a membership of about 111 members who hail from more than 20 countries spanning the globe. 
We focus on collecting at least  One Can from every One of the C

It is a VERY taste-full-filling Hobby
