These are SuMmer Introductory Low-key Events and they will be held on either Saturday or Sunday mornings starting on Sunday 21 March 2004 and finishing on 18 July 2004. SMILE events will offer White, Yellow and Orange courses, 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 beginning 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.

|Final Points Table|
SMILE will be back in 2005. Hope to see you all back again.
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 £2)
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.
We shall be running a SMILE LEAGUE, with your four best competitive scores on one course counting towards your final score. SMILE LEAGUE winners will get trophies and again there will be LOTS of prizes. The Smile 2003 final results can be found here.
To be run at the Wandlebury event, still on White, Yellow and Orange courses. Details later, when we have worked them out.
These will all happen at the last SMILE event, at Wandlebury, Cambridge on Sunday 18 July, so write this date in your diary now and BE THERE
