Geocache Description:

Time for another MOGA! Our 6th Year!! OVER 100 PERMANENT

Mark Twain Lake State Park in Association with the US Army Corps of
Engineers is proud to present MOGA 2009. The St. Louis Area
Geocachers Association and the MOGA Staff will provide an event for
all geocachers regardless of physical ability. We will place over
100 permanent caches for this event. They will range anywhere from
4/4 to 1/1. All courses will be defined on maps so you can choose
your course.

Courses will be as follows:

Individual Competition - For those who want to compete
individually we will have 30 caches available with a terrain of 2
to a terrain of 3.5.

Team Competition - For those who want to compete in the 2
person or 4 person team event, we will have 30 caches available
with a terrain of 2 to a terrain of 3.5.

Early Bird Non Competitors - We will have 20 caches that
will be released prior to the event, hopefully by Wednesday, March
25th, that will allow anyone at anytime to start caching while the
competitions take place.

Early Bird Park and Grabs - This year we will have 20 park
and grab caches where the terrain might be 1 to 1.5 but the
difficulty will be 3 - 5. These should be released on Wednesday as

Also this year, you will be allowed to hunt the competition caches
anytime you want. They will be released on Wednesday Night
for everyone. We will also download the coords and provide the GPX
files (through GSAK) on Saturday Morning during breakfast. The
competitors will not be hunting the caches directly this year.
Instead, they will find the associated punch for that cache. See
the event manual for full details.We should have it finished by November 1st

Please watch this page. We have a lot of planning taking place and
will update it regularly. We will also update the website
regularly. See THE MOGA WEBSITE for full details on the event.

UPDATE 10-27-2008

This past weekend the MOGA staff went out and hid almost 100 new caches around Mark Twain Lake. There will be many more added before the event. It was a great weekend and we managed to come up with some very tricky hides, beautiful views, easy terrain and tough terrain, park and grabs, along with some very evil hides! We would like to thank the following cachers for their donation of caches for the event.
Team Jimni
L Frank
Forester Al (All the ammo cans!!!)

Also, thanks to all the people who came out and helped place the caches. It looks like it will be a great weekend in March!!!
