TICONDEROGA - The Ticonderoga Outing Club will sponsor an after-school course on map and compass use beginning in January.

The cost for required course materials will be approximately $30.
The course will be taught by Frank Shaw, a New York State licensed guide, and will be open to interested adults on a space available basis. An informational meeting will be held at the Ticonderoga High School in Room 116 on Jan. 6 at 5:30 p.m. For more information contact Shaw at email@example.com.
