What is SMILE?

These are SuMmer Introductory Low-key Events and they will be held on either Saturday or Sunday mornings starting on 10 April and finishing on Saturday, 9 July 2005.  SMILE events offer 3 courses planned to the White, Yellow and Orange standards, and each one will be planned and organised by a different WAOC family.   There will also be a timed score event to keep the more experienced busy.

SMILE events are aimed particularly at developing orienteers and those juniors or seniors who need more practice at the three easiest courses.  Please bring your non-orienteering friends and families along - we'll give them lots of help.

Coaching for All

Note:  New start time of 12:00

Coaching sessions will be available at  the Wandlebury, Hinchingbrooke Park and Therfield Heath events.  The sessions available will be:

Starting on White
Moving on to Yellow
Orange Skills
Light Green Plus

These sessions all start at 12:00 are available to everybody and are free.  Please contact Dil Wetherill for more details.


The cost of a morning's orienteering will be just 1 and for this you can do as many courses as you can fit in to the time available, so it is a really good chance to run your usual course really fast and then have a non-competitive go at the next harder one. (Adults Score course 3)

Master Maps and Pin Punches

We shall be using a master map system with pin punching, partly to keep costs down but also to make the planning and organisation simpler.

Prizes, Presentations and Party

Unfortunately the party after the Therfield Heath event has had to be cancelled, but the SMILE event is still going ahead as planned.
