Sat, Nov 5: Map and Compass Class Bought a compass but not sure how to use it? Lack of practice made you rusty? Totally lost and want to be found? Here’s the solution: attend this basic M and C course. We’ll practice map-to-compass and vice versa, concluding with a short bushwhack, probably at Higley State Park. Bring compass and a snack, you’ll be home for late lunch (we hope!). Members only. Easy. John Omohundro, 315-244-9131.

Sat, Nov 12: Azure Mountain “Hike and Dine” We’ll do a late season climb of Azure Mountain, followed by a late lunch at a local restaurant.  Depending on conditions, microspikes or similar footwear may be required.  2 miles RT, 944 elevation gain. Level 2. Contact Tom Ortmeyer (315-265-8219, tortmeye@gmail.com) for details.

Sun, Nov 13: Annual Meeting and Fall Pot Luck at the First Presbyterian Church on the Park, 17 Park St., Canton. Bring a dish to share and your own tableware.

Guest speaker Pete Hickey, head Trailmaster of the Adirondack 46ers, will describe their trail construction and maintenance program.

Sat, Dec 3: Cooper Marsh Conservation Area “Hike and Dine” On the Ontario side of the St. Lawrence, thirty minutes east of Cornwall.
