General Information

Due to the environments of the businesses we will be touring this year, all tour attendees are expected to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. If you do not adhere to these guidelines, you will not be permitted to tour Keystone Steel and Caterpillar.

The tour stop at Caterpillar is limited to the first 220 people. If you are unable to walk more than 1 mile on concrete, this tour may not be for you. An alternate stop is being planned. Please check the box on the registration form if you are NOT interested in attending the Caterpillar tour.
