The Planning of a Safe Event
MOGA is a massive, annual Geocaching Competition Mega Event, as such MOGA is a mostly outdoor event. The activities are focused around the orienteering style individual and team competitions, the launch of 60+ new geocaches, a free to participate poker run, and much more! There are clearly portions of MOGA that best work indoors, such as the Friday Night event, MOGA Central for the shop and vendors, the no purchase necessary MOGA Sweepstakes, and the Closing Announcements.
Not knowing if COVID will still be a situation in 2023 or not, we are extremely proactive in planning!
* All health and safety guidelines will be followed.
Sponsors, Supporters, & Friends Of...
Without our sponsors, supporters, and Friends of MOGA program, we would not be able to make this event possible. Thank you to:
