Welcome!!!!


You have reached the homepage of the Michigan Geocaching Organization (MiGO). The purpose of our organization is to promote the sport of Geocaching in Michigan via improved communications and to provide information to the public about our activities and the sport of geocaching. Please spend some time on our site. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us or visit www.geocaching.com for more details.

Join MiGO Today! Our free membership gives you many benefits. MiGO is one of the oldest and most respected Geocaching organizations in the country. Since our inception in April, 2002 we have grown both in size and stature. In 2007 we were granted an organizational land use permit by the Michigan DNR. This permit is paid annually by MiGO and enables all our members to place caches on permitted DNR lands at no fee. This is just one of the many benefits of your free membership. You'll also become part of a local and tight-knit Geocaching community with an active interest in caching in our state. Our forums are very active and are a great place to meet cachers and learn.

MiGO and You


Welcome! This is the new home of the Michigan Geocaching Organization or MiGO. Geocaching is closing in on 20 years of existence and MiGO has been a part of most of that. Our goal is to promote the activity of geocaching by helping geocachers and those looking to get into geocaching. What can we do to help you? Take a look around and let us know what you think. Feel free to share your thoughts and suggestions. Happy caching!

Membership Cost

The new site is paid for by the month per active membership. If you pay the $10 supporting membership you are paying for the cost for a year. If you sign up for a free membership MiGO pays the cost. On the old site we had over 7000 listed memberships. Why that many? The answer is people checking the site signed up for free membership and never come back. Signing up every three months weeds those inactive memberships out keeping our cost down.  Which is cheaper paying for 150 members or 7,000?
We  will lose about $2,000 this year unless our members are willing to become Supporting Members!

 

SITE UPDATE 

In a time long, long, ago it was decreed a new site should be brought forth!  In the present day you can observe that the frame for that site has been built and the roof placed atop.  Some plumbing and heating still needs to be installed but rooms have been divided out on the floor plan.  The masters built the frame but it falls on the new apprentices to raise the interior walls and sheath them with drywall before the paint and decorating can be accomplished.  We will have to be patient as the apprentices learn the trade and finish what should be a most glorious web site indeed!

For those that are hardy, apprentice positions may still be had, so dally not and submit your interest to: beenhere@hughes.net

The Board of Directors and Executive Committee of the Michigan Geocaching Organization would like to thank all of the applicants for this year’s scholarship award. Choosing a winner was extremely difficult this year not only because of the outstanding applicants but also the number. The Board of Directors has generously expanded the award this year to two recipients. We are pleased to announce that those two recipients are Annabel Allen and Autumn McGuffie . Congratulations to both of these fine people. MiGO hopes that all of the other applicants submit their names again next year and that many others take advantage of this opportunity and do the same.
