Troop 850 will return to Salt Creek Ranch near Metamora, Indiana for a day of Horseback Riding. The Troop’s first visit to the ranch was in May 2010 and 26 Scouts and 9 Adults enjoyed a beautiful 2-hour ride. The permission slip below and $ 45 fee per person are due May 8th.
Keeping track of 25 or 30 Scouts at camp or on the road to high adventure can be challenging, to say the least. We’ve found that having all of our Scouts and Troops wear the same t-shirt for these events is a huge help to our adult leaders. So for the past few years we’ve let everyone know exactly what color troop t-shirts they will need to wear on these trips. This year, everyone (Scout or adult) who is going to summer camp at Camp Friedlander will need troop t-shirts in the following colors: RED YELLOW BRIGHT GREEN ORANGE GRAY TAN MAROON
Everyone going on the high adventure trip to Minnesota will need: RED YELLOW BRIGHT GREEN ORANGE
An order form is attached here: Please fill it out with your t-shirt needs and return to Chas Hertlein not later than the May 15 meeting so we’ll have time to get our order filled with the t-shirt company. The cost is $8.00 per shirt.
Please remember that Tuesday, April 10th is the final turn-in for money and unsold spaghetti dinner tickets. Any money turned in after the troop meeting on April 10th will NOT be credited to the scout’s account. Please put the cash, checks, and any unsold tickets in an envelope with the scout’s name, number of adult tickets sold, number of child tickets sold and the total amount of money turned in.
The Spring Backpacking trip April 20-22 will be in the Mount Vesuvius region of Wayne National Forest in Southeast Ohio. All Scouts including first time backpackers are welcome to attend. The permission slip below and $ 35 fee per person are due April 10th.
This is an opportunity to provide a valuable public service to the Community, benefit Troop 850 and add to your Personal Camp Fund at the same time. 20 scouts and 8-10 adults are needed to help with this event. Scouts will process confidential documents that parishoners and community members drop off during the 9 – 11 am event (volunteers will work 8 – noon).
Shred Safe will provide 2 shredding trucks and portable totes. Scouts will remove all metal and plastic bindings, paper clips and other non-shreddable items. Adults will oversee the processing, aid in maintaining the flow of totes to the shredding trucks, and ensure traffic flow in the parking lot and general safety.
Contact Mr. De Noma if you are interested in participating.

We strongly encourage all Troop 850 Scouts to participate to show our appreciation to Cincinnati Parks for allowing us to use Maple Ridge Lodge for our Dutch Oven Campout at no charge.
Please return the Permission Slip by March 6th. As in previous years, there is no charge for our Service Campout.

Troop 850’s annual Dutch Oven Campout will be held the weekend of February 10-12 in the warmth of Mount Airy’s Maple Ridge Lodge. Under the tutelage of Master Chef Andrew Ciolino, the Scouts will spend Saturday blending, stirring, spicing, pureeing, and decorating a 3 course meal. Some very lucky, specially selected guest judges will feast on the … uh, feast. There will also be time set aside for card playing, sled riding (maybe), and a Saturday night movie with popcorn.
Mass with Father Don will be in the Lodge at 4:30 Saturday and all parents are welcome to join us, but please indicate on the permission slip so we know how many to expect.
Please return the permission slip with fee ($ 20 per person) by Tuesday February 7th.
