Cow Maneuver slated for homecoming weekend

TICONDEROGA The Ticonderoga High School Booster Club will sponsor its fourth annual Cow Maneuver on homecoming weekend. The event is the primary fund raiser to benefit the Ticonderoga High School athletic teams. Participants will have the opportunity to win a $1,000 prize based on the location of their deeded plot of land. The past three years of the Cow Maneuver event have been very successful, stated chairwoman Lynne Lenhart. The booster club has spent over $8,000 on our athletes during the past three years, based on requests from the Sentinel coaches. Some examples of purchases for the teams since 2006 include a softball pitching machine, building materials for football locker room renovation, travel bags for girls softball, a digital clock for cross-country and track, golf bags, travel jackets for boys basketball, face guard helmets for girls softball, warm-up suits for boys and girls track, travel bags for football, a new sound system for Sentinel field, a two man tackle sled for football, and protective awnings for soccer. The event will take place Homecoming weekend, Sept. 27, during a chicken barbecue at the Ticonderoga Knights of Columbus pavilion from 4 to 7 p.m. Contestants will try to win $1,000 by purchasing an official deed (raffle ticket) which assigns them a random plot of land in the grassy area at the pavilion. The contest winner will be chosen by the celebrity cow, which (after being fed) will mark one of the lucky plots of turf and pick the $1,000 winner. The four plots adjoining the winning plot will $100 each. Cow Maneuver Deeds can be purchase at Wicker Ford in Ticonderoga or by calling the Ticonderoga High School at 585-6661 ex. 171. Deeds are also being sold at all home Sentinel football games.
