Congratulations John and thank you for so much service to the hobby!
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!

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.
