Welcome to the online registration system for MOGA 2021 Competitions. All registration is online, you will NOT be able to signup at the event, it must be done here.

With that said we will only provide a printed list of the punch card and GPS coords (for the classic punch competitions) and you will have to enter them in yourself. IF you would like to purchase “Competition Tools” this will give you access to a topo map of the punch area and we will email you the GPX file about 1 hour before the competition so you can self-load your GPS/Phone with the waypoints.
