MiGO and You
This is the 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 Leadership Update 2/2020
Welcome the following:
At Large member:
Jodi Spalding (LiteOnCache)
and in her new role as Executive Committee Treasurer:
Lynn Johnson (LynnGeoGin)
BIG things are going on at MiGO, and I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what some of them are:
The Executive Committee is in the planning stages for the next rendition of the Challenge of the Month.
Come to Camp MiGO the weekend of August 22nd. Watch the panel on the home page for more information.
The Spring of 2019 put Michigan on the world geocaching map with our first official GeoTour! MiGO and the Michigan Department of Resources continue working together on this GeoTour celebrating the 100th anniversary of Michigan's State Parks.
The GeoTour has been an amazing success and is already one of the most popular GeoTours in the world. Thank you to the entire team for a job well done.
There are more things to announce, but they're not quite ready yet. The Executive Committee is working hard to keep bringing you fun things to do. Your support is much appreciated. We can't do it without you.
We have new merchandise in the pipeline for the store. We have unique and exclusive path tags for you to acquire, we will have a bigger presence at events around the state and be making donations in cash and in-kind for events of all types and sizes. Let your RVP know if you have an event coming up that you would like MiGO to help with.
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 have made big strides in the number of supporting members, but we still have a long way to go to break even. Are you willing to become Supporting Members!
