Midwest Invitational Geocaching Adventure (MIGC 2004) was presented to members of Saint Louis Area Geocachers Association (SLAGA) on September 20, 2003 by Mike Griffin. We had breakfast at IHOP before heading out to find some caches.
The three-day event was held at Hawn State Park in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, and was sponsored by the St. Louis Orienteering Club, with the cooperation of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. MIGC was attended by over 80 participants from seven different states - some from as far away as New Jersey. Competitors raced from waypoint to waypoint on moderate to difficult terrain, with divisions for individuals, 2-person and 4-person teams. Non-competitors were also welcome to hunt 21 temporary caches. SLAGA member Sniper1 took first place in the ‘difficult-terrain’ division. Event staff members included BWAT, Tim, Pam & Molly, Happykraut, Brawny Bear, Dreicat and Sev, jeepers2 and Jada, thunder_monk, rocksusan, Dorkus&Co., dogda, *gln and JoA, RGS and Charlotte, xitaqua, Strider, nyisutter, mamalu, and Know Future.
