MiGO 10 Year Anniversary
Written by Michigan Geocaching Organization   
Wednesday, 14 March 2012

On April 11, 2002 - MiGO was formed. A yahoo group was established to enable everyone to get online and talk about where to take the new group. With no real leadership structure at the start, it was agreed there would be a first picnic to discuss the new group and who would step up and lead the steering group.

On April 27, 2002 in Grand Woods Park in Lansing, Michigan the first group of MiGO cachers converged for an afternoon of caching fun. Rusty had secured the pavillion and set up a closest to the pin. Everyone brought sweets to share and there was a great showcase of travel bugs and new cache ideas. It was a lot of fun and the day ended with a meeting to discuss the formalization of MiGO. The group in attendance indicated their approval for trippy1976, Rusty, and Zuckerruebensirup to act as a steering group to file the paperwork and create the initial bylaws for the group.

Since its inception in 2002 by a ragtag group of Geocachers on a mailing list and at a picnic - MiGO has taken membership to over 1300 Geocachers and maintains an active membership database of over 500 Geocachers. MiGO has grown to be recognized as the "goto" club in the state for land managers.

To honor and celebrate the 10 year anniversary, we're returning to the location of the original picnic for a day of great food and friends!
