I might try and find a way to attend. It looks like a blast. Have to bring the popup camper if I go.

Traditionally, yes, but I'm not sure about this year since it's moving venues. All I can find is 150 new caches, which Sparkyfry and SNB can tackle in a few hours. Wink Looking at the google map of the area it doesn't look like there are too many around it. This could be an interesting year for MOGA.

MOGA usually puts out a huge number of permanent caches for the event - I would expect this year to be no different.

The number of logable caches that they have is one of the big draws (I believe) to the event.

True, but I can only find them listing 150 or so according to the cache page. Which is a lot yes, but I thought in Missouri there were over 500 within a 5 or 10 mile radius. Maybe I'm wrong on that? Wink

I show 600 in a 50 mile radius, or 350 in a 10 mile radius. This is from a GSAK load I did at the time of the 2010 event.

The MOGA website says they're placing caches this Saturday for the 2011 event.
