Is there a running list of MN residents headed to MOGA?


Some might be going but don't want it to be public knowledge.

I'm interested but don't want to go alone. If something can be worked out with someone else going to this event, please PM me.

I read on the webpage that MOGA leadership with be handed over to a different geocaching group after this year. I wonder if this would be something the MnGca would be willing to take on? MOGA in Minnesota...maybe then we could win back the MN cup.

I read that too and would be fun to have it here, at least for one year.

It's tough to get volunteers for a Spring Event.

MOGA is a whole different deal.

Way under-represented this year.

Winter camping ROCKS.

Only about 40% of the available cache locations were used. Question

WHERE were the signs?

What do you mean? There were more caches there than I could ever possibly get to in four days time. My total count, 2 days travelling and two days solid caching, was about 140 finds. Seems we barely scratched the surface of what was there.

I was judging it against last year, which was probably not fair.

It's been asked before of us, but we have a lot of things working against us in MN. One, and a big one, finding a location that would support the number of caches that we would need that still has easy access to shelters and other necessities. Second is the weather here during that time of year. Many people not from the midwest think MN is an ice box all year long. But even if it were to warm up as it normally does having a major snow storm as we generally have in march would really hamper the events that are needed. While I'm not trying to poo poo a legitimate discussion again on the topic, I think we have more cons than pros. But, of course, I'd love to see it here.

I think those are all good points, and I think you'd seriously need to look at KB's point too - MOGA requires a huge amount of manpower. I don't see that we can get that many people to step up.

Of the skull and crossbones geo-art, I failed in completing the entire series. I believe there were 92 caches and I was only able to score 64 of them.
