The SLAGA-sponsored geocaching competition underwent some improvements and was renamed the Midwest Open Geocaching Adventure
(MOGA). The 2005 event was held at Meramec State Park and was co-sponsored by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
Event hosts Tim, Pam & Molly
provided activities for both competitors and non-competitors alike. Over 100 cachers from all over the country attended. Rules for the competition were relaxed from the previous year to allow participants to hunt caches in any order. A CITO event
was held the following weekend to make sure all of the temporary caches and trash were removed from the park. Konopapw
decided that it would be a good idea to capture the event setup and activities on video.
