The MiGO County Challenge is finally here!  After a lot of hard work and discussion by the EC, we’ve approved a process and pin to be awarded for finding at least one cache in each of Michigan's 83 counties.
Here’s a look at what your working for: CountyChallengePinBlueprint.gif

How do you get it? Simple. Once you’ve found a cache in every county, you can check http://project-gc.com/Challenges/GC2YNEB/3144 for a challenge checker or run a “my finds” pocket query and forward it along with any contact info you wish to share to Stephen Fritz (BeenHere) at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it  and he will verify your finds. Once that’s done,  Stephen will work out a delivery option with you. To save on shipping costs, it’s preferred that you coordinate a pick up at an event that Stephen is attending.

So who can participate? Anyone! We’re opening it up to any Geocacher who puts in the time and effort to complete this difficult challenge.

What if I’ve already completed the challenge? Do I get a pin still? Yes you do! Any cacher that has found a cache in every county prior to our release of this challenge can still get one.

I’ve got more then one member of my team that was involved in this challenge.  Do I only get one pin? After a lot of debate on this one, we’ve decided to keep it simple. If you have a multi member Geocaching account and you’d like more then one pin, your team can request one extra pin, but that’s it. A max of 2 pins per Geocaching account that has completed the challenge.
