MOGA – Official Competitions:
- Individual/Team Punch: The classic MOGA competition based on orienteering. 2.5 hours each, you are given a list of GPS points and on foot over the area of about 1 square mile, you find as many check points as possible and make it back before you run out of time. Each check point corresponds with a Geocache, so you get finds!
- Puzzle Competition: You and a team mate have 2 hours to solve as many puzzles as possible, plus find the final locations! One person must remain in the room at all times. Only pencil and paper is available for use.
- Disabilities Competition: Along a pretty level, road course, participants will have to move from location to location to find as many checkpoints as possible.
- Bike Competition, Wherigo: Participate at your own convenience, but with a max of 2.5 hours participation time, you will ride around the town with a goal to hit as many “zones” on the provided Wherigo cart as possible. Your times, speed and more will be recorded. Get back and submit your data be the deadline. Bonus for every minute you shave off the 2.5 hours time limit! Bike required, bring your own or rent one.
- Cache Builder Competition: Be a part of the first MOGA cache building competition, up to 15 competitors will submit their cache and you can be the judge on the winner.
