Information Guide to Hosting MOGA

Are you looking to bring a fun and exciting opportunity for your area? MOGA (Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure) is a traveling Geocaching Event that attracts attendees from around the world to complete in timed competitions. For those people who like the sense of adventure but are not much into the extreme outdoor competition, there are several activities, side events, and engagement opportunities that we bring!

One of the most popular extra activities is the Poker Run. Participants will scavenger hunt set locations for plastic cards to collect and bring back for a chance to win a cool prize. What kind of locations are used? That is your pick! Local historical sites, mom and pop shops, public works of art, etc.
