Where were the other Smiths?????
Unfortunately, they were all at O ringen.

The Smith Family Event (also known as the "Fundy O Oh") was held at Micmac Campground in Fundy National Park on Sunday, July 20. The weather was perfect for orienteering a bit of sun, a bit of cloud, cool, and windy enough so there were no bugs. We actually had many Smith participants: Smiths from the Falcon Club, Smiths from the Fundy Club, and Smiths from the Foxes. We also had people from near and far as far away as Ireland, and Delaware, USA. We had first time orienteers, and we had seasoned orienteers (the Meldrums came out of the woodwork, with Kirk winning the men's senior class in Course 4). We had barbequed hotdogs, and drinks at the finish.
