Moga 2016 Details
-MOGA is the world’s largest, annual geocaching competition Mega Event. The event was based on orienteering meets, however competition is optional.
-Areas of competition include the classic “punch” competition, puzzles, with several new ones this year! Ally cat style bike competition, paddle caching competition using Wherigos, and a Disability course.
-Outside of the main competitions there are plenty of activities like: Gadget caching, night caches, Geo-Art, kid caches, poker run and more! It is also worth mentioning that the Freedom GeoTrail is nearby.
-The Geocoin for MOGA 2016 is a 2 inch, 3D sculpted Geocoin with a glow in the dark flame on the front side when gems around it. The award geocoin is an impressive 3 1/8th inch, 1/4lb 3D sculpted medal! Both designed by Christian Mackey.
-“Achiever’s at MOGA” will be the Friday night event where we will be the first event to honor geocaching challenges on such a large scale level. For all qualified attendees, we will be awarding them a 3D sculpted medal with Signal on the front for each of their achievements that we have selected. This is free! Currently we are set to give out nearly 500 medals.
-MOGA 2016 will also be kicking off one of the largest, if not the largest TB race in history with more than 500 participants. To participate you just need to register with any paid package.
-Thanks goes to: OKIC and MVG geocaching groups for their amazing support in building MOGA 2016. Clermont County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau for they dedication, partnership with AFK and sponsorship of MOGA.
