MiGO and You
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!
MiGO wants to get you more involved in Geocaching and MiGO!
To that end, we are announcing the
“Challenge of the Month”!
Challenges will be posted on the first Friday of the month, and run until the last Sunday of the month. You can choose any cache that meets the challenge requirements, but all caches must be found during the challenge period.
We want everyone to be able to participate, so every challenge will have three levels:
Bronze Level: Pretty much everyone should be able to do these, though some may have you step out of your comfort zone a little!
Silver Level: These will be a bit tougher – it’s a way to push yourself as a cacher! Can you complete the Silver Level Challenge?
Gold Level: These are for the most dedicated and hardcore cachers out there! Challenge yourself to the max and see if you can complete these very tough challenges!
Go to the Forums on the Membership page to learn more and to participate.
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!

The Susan Kay Schug Educational Scholarship
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.
