    Greetings Troop 870 / 5870

    Tree Recycling is our number 1 fund raiser, it funds the majority of our trips all year. Each Scout that works during Tree Recycling will earn hours, those hours will credit into their Scout Account. If a Scout can work 75% of the days they should be able to earn enough to go to Summer Camp.

    Flier Distribution hours will count towards your hours for Tree Crunch. This is an important step as we will be out and present in neighborhoods and advertising the service to our local areas.

    We need Drivers! Parent Volunteers make this fund raiser possible, please help us out, you will get to know some of the Scouts and do a little community service in the meantime. We do not need trucks or trailers for fliers, cars work great. Parents, please comment below if you can drive and how many seats you have in your vehicle.

    Happy Holidays Everyone

    ***It’s important you RSVP so we have a good head count for Ernesto’s

    Remember to bring a gift if you plan on Participating in the The White Elephant Gift Exchange Game:

    The Gifts
    *The gift should be valued as close to $10.00 as is reasonable.
    *The gift can be purchased, found or made.
    *The gift must be scout appropriate, No adult oriented gifts.
    *The gift should be wrapped or in an envelope before arriving to the party. Gift bags are OK only if a
    wrapped item is inside.
    *As guests arrive to the party, the gifts should be placed in an area where few people can see who
    brought which gift. All efforts should be made to hide who brought which gift.

    Class A Uniforms please.

    This year’s event will be held at Ernesto’s Italian Restaurant. (http://www.ernestositalian.com/) 6.1 miles from MHCC.

    Ernesto’s is one of the Portland/Metro area’s finest Italian restaurants. We are very fortunate to have this venue for our celebration and we are doubly fortunate as Chris Wegner (Proprietor of Ernesto’s & father of Michael Wegner, former troop 870 scout) is extending special pricing to our troop. Chris asks that we do not publicize our special pricing and that we keep this pricing between Troop 870 and Ernesto’s. Please honor this request.

    This event is open to both scouts and their families.

    The cost is $20 per person

    If you have the opportunity, please prepay in advance at one of the up coming troop meetings. This will help to avoid a bottle neck at the entrance of the banquet room the night of the event.

    Jennifer Kennedy (Troop 870 Treasurer) will be only be accepting cash or a check at the entrance of the Monte Carlo room at Ernesto’s the night of the event. .
    Please have exact change if paying in cash.

    As always scouts are welcome to use their scout account to pay for this event – just let Jennifer know that is your intent.

    Dinner will be served buffet style and be available from 6pm-6:45pm
    Below will be the courses available to choose from:

    Beverages- Soda,Coffee, Tea, Water
    Focaccia Bread
    Caesar Salad
    Spaghetti bar with choice of Meat orMarinara sauce
    Roasted Vegetables

    We will be dining in a large private banquet room (Monte Carlo Room) that over looks the Jesuit High School football field.

    The White Elephant Gift Exchange Game:

    The Gifts
    *The gift should be valued as close to $10.00 as is reasonable.
    *The gift can be purchased, found or made. (We prefer gifts you are looking to get rid of)
    *The gift must be scout appropriate, No adult oriented gifts.
    *The gift should be wrapped or in an envelope before arriving to the party. Gift bags are OK only if a
    wrapped item is inside.
    *As guests arrive to the party, the gifts should be placed in an area where few people can see who
    brought which gift. All efforts should be made to hide who brought which gift.

    The Game
    *Each guest who wishes to participate must contribute a gift.
    *Prepare slips of paper equal to the number of gifts with clearly written numbers. Each participating guest draws a number and holds onto that slip of paper.
    *On the first turn, the guest with paper slip #1 chooses a gift, opens it, and all admire it.
    *On the second turn, the guest with paper slip #2 gets the choice of stealing any unwrapped gift (#1’s) or
    choosing a wrapped one. If #2 steals #1’s gift, then #1 must open a wrapped gift.
    *On the third turn, the guest with paper slip #3 gets the choice of stealing any unwrapped gift (#1’s or
    #2’s) or choosing a wrapped one.
    *If a gift is stolen from you, you can steal a gift (within limits, described below), or open a wrapped one.
    *The turn proceeds until a wrapped gift is chosen.
    *A gift cannot be immediately stolen back from the guest who just stole it.
    *The third owner of a gift gets to keep it. The gift is dead after it has been stolen two times.
    *Owners of live gifts must keep them visible and hold them up when requested.
    *The gift exchange ends when the last wrapped gift is opened. Usually, guests are encouraged to
    perpetuate the gift stealing as long as there are live gifts, but no one is obligated to do this.

    Please note:
    In the interest of time we may split the white elephant gift exchange into groups depending on how many folks participate in the gift exchange.

    I am going to be reaching out to three adults to help volunteer to run the white elephant game. With this large of a group we are going to split into four groups.

    If you have any questions feel free to email me or respond to this message.

    Yours in Scouting ,

    Mr Steagall/Larry

  • 1:00 pm Aubrey Watzek Overnighter
    Aubrey Watzek Overnighter
    1:00 pm
    Aubrey Watzek- Meet at MHCC at 1:00pm

    Greetings troop 870/5870,

    We are headed to Aubrey Watzek for an overnighter. We will depart MHCC at 1pm Saturday and return around 6pm Sunday afternoon.

    Cost of this trip is $25.00 per Scout/Scouter (this is a bargain overnighter)
    This includes 3 meals (Bring Your Mess Kit) + cracker barrel Saturday Nights and Gasoline.

    Bring Your Mess Kit – we will try to minimize the amount of trash that we generate on this trip. A good way to do that is to decrease or eliminate disposable plates and plastic wear.

    Bring a sled or toboggan to move gear to lodge to the lodge. NO sled or toboggans allowed on the tubing hills. The lodge provides tubes for the hill

    There are reservations for 20 troop 870 Scouts, 8 troop 5870 Scouts and 8 Drivers, please RSVP by Feb 25th to secure a spot
    (We will need a few parents to drive up and stay the night, this is a great trip for those who don’t enjoy tent camping as we will be in the lodge to sleep)
    (Drivers will need snow park passes, so we will need to firm up drivers early so we can get the passes)

    There will be plenty of Snow Tubing on this Trip!!!

    What is Snow Tubing !?!?!?!?
    Snow tubing is simply a fun, recreational activity that makes use of gravity to transport oneself to the bottom of a slope while riding an inner tube.
    A steeper run equals higher speed!!!
    There is no skill required to be able to snow tube!
    There is no training required, no practice needed and no muscle strength necessary!
    As long as you can sit and hold on, you are good to go!!!
    This activity is somewhat similar to sledding, but the difference is, you have a softer surface to sit on!!!

    IT IS REALLY FUN!!!

    We will leave the Parking Lot at MHCC at 1:00 pm on Saturday.

    The boys will be sleeping in Bunk Beds so they will need to bring a sleeping bag & pad.
    They will also need plenty of dry clothes because they are sure to get wet playing in the snow. Please note there is a dryer, but only one per deck. And used frequently. So the condition of the dryer is questionable. I would suggest extra clothes.
    Snow pants or Snow Bibs are a good idea.
    Dry gloves and socks are the most important because it is no fun walking around the lodge in wet socks.
    Please also have something that you can wear on your feet inside the Lodge. The floors are wood and the chance of a splinter goes up considerably when you are bare foot.

    The adults will be providing a cracker barrel Saturday evening at the lodge. Adults will also be cooking Dinner Saturday, plus breakfast and lunch on Sunday, We have to be out of the lodge by 2pm on Sunday, off the grounds by 3pm and back at MHCC by around 5pm Sunday.

    THINGS TO BRING FOR AN OVERNIGHT STAY AUBREY LODGE:
    Sleeping bag
    Sleeping pad (optional – they have thin pads on the bunks)

Sunday March 5
  • Aubrey Watzek Overnighter Ends 5:00 pm
    Aubrey Watzek Overnighter
    Aubrey Watzek- Meet at MHCC at 1:00pm

    Greetings troop 870/5870,

    We are headed to Aubrey Watzek for an overnighter. We will depart MHCC at 1pm Saturday and return around 6pm Sunday afternoon.

    Cost of this trip is $25.00 per Scout/Scouter (this is a bargain overnighter)
    This includes 3 meals (Bring Your Mess Kit) + cracker barrel Saturday Nights and Gasoline.

    Bring Your Mess Kit – we will try to minimize the amount of trash that we generate on this trip. A good way to do that is to decrease or eliminate disposable plates and plastic wear.

    Bring a sled or toboggan to move gear to lodge to the lodge. NO sled or toboggans allowed on the tubing hills. The lodge provides tubes for the hill

    There are reservations for 20 troop 870 Scouts, 8 troop 5870 Scouts and 8 Drivers, please RSVP by Feb 25th to secure a spot
    (We will need a few parents to drive up and stay the night, this is a great trip for those who don’t enjoy tent camping as we will be in the lodge to sleep)
    (Drivers will need snow park passes, so we will need to firm up drivers early so we can get the passes)

    There will be plenty of Snow Tubing on this Trip!!!

    What is Snow Tubing !?!?!?!?
    Snow tubing is simply a fun, recreational activity that makes use of gravity to transport oneself to the bottom of a slope while riding an inner tube.
    A steeper run equals higher speed!!!
    There is no skill required to be able to snow tube!
    There is no training required, no practice needed and no muscle strength necessary!
    As long as you can sit and hold on, you are good to go!!!
    This activity is somewhat similar to sledding, but the difference is, you have a softer surface to sit on!!!

    IT IS REALLY FUN!!!

    We will leave the Parking Lot at MHCC at 1:00 pm on Saturday.

    The boys will be sleeping in Bunk Beds so they will need to bring a sleeping bag & pad.
    They will also need plenty of dry clothes because they are sure to get wet playing in the snow. Please note there is a dryer, but only one per deck. And used frequently. So the condition of the dryer is questionable. I would suggest extra clothes.
    Snow pants or Snow Bibs are a good idea.
    Dry gloves and socks are the most important because it is no fun walking around the lodge in wet socks.
    Please also have something that you can wear on your feet inside the Lodge. The floors are wood and the chance of a splinter goes up considerably when you are bare foot.

    The adults will be providing a cracker barrel Saturday evening at the lodge. Adults will also be cooking Dinner Saturday, plus breakfast and lunch on Sunday, We have to be out of the lodge by 2pm on Sunday, off the grounds by 3pm and back at MHCC by around 5pm Sunday.

    THINGS TO BRING FOR AN OVERNIGHT STAY AUBREY LODGE:
    Sleeping bag
    Sleeping pad (optional – they have thin pads on the bunks)
    Bring Your Mess Kit
    Pillow
    Games (board games, cards, etc)
    flashlight
    Sled for transporting gear to lodge from the parking lot (not for use on tubing hill)
