Caterpillar Tour on Tuesday, June 1st, returning in time for the Welcome Reception at the IMU that evening:

"Caterpillar Inc. invites you to join them for a machine demonstration and tour of the Caterpillar Ride Simulator on Tuesday, June 1st, 2010.  

Caterpillar will provide round trip transportation from Iowa City.  We will depart at 7:30 a.m. from Iowa City and will go directly to the Edwards Demonstration & Learning Center for an exciting demonstration of Caterpillar machines being operated by expert operators.  Travel time is approximately 2 ½ hours, one way.    

After lunch, which will be provided onsite at Edwards, we will proceed to the Caterpillar Mossville engineering center for a tour of the Caterpillar Ride Simulator.  This unique facility includes a motion platform and a driving simulator.  Upon completion of the tour, we will return to Iowa City with an expected early evening arrival time.

At this time, Caterpillar Inc. are unable to extend this invitation to employees of companies that manufacture competitive products to Caterpillar Inc."
