Each year Troop 150 has its only fundraising event. The troop pre-sells Christmas tree recycling service in November and December. Pre-mapped sales routes are used to sell our service. Then in early January we pick up and recycle all trees. Scouts and adults earn shares for their scouts account base on how much they participate. This activity is time consuming and takes effort by all scouts and parents. It teaches the scouts how to present themselves to the public, builds confidence, and teaches the rewards of hard work.
Please join us in thanking Angela Willis Owner/President PrintSync Inc 6775 SW 111th Ave, #10, Beaverton, OR 97008 * 503-520-2000 www.printsync.com She and Print Sync have been printing all the troop 150 recycling flyers for several years as a donation. Anything you can do to thank and support PrintSync would be great!
Meriting with the Experts is proud to present the opportunity for Scouts to learn the Composite Materials merit badge. Composite Materials provides a great opportunity to learn how objects we see and use every day are made, from simple containers to the body parts of large vehicles and machinery. Learning how fiberglass, resins, and polymers are used will show Scouts how science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are used to provide important resources for everyone’s use and get a glimpse into great career fields in the future. On the mornings of September 22nd and 23rd learn from professionals how different materials are combined to create new ones with hands-on learning at Miles Fiberglass and Composites in Happy Valley, OR. While working on the merit badge you will also work on your own composite project to take home. Previous projects include hiking sticks and kayaks!
Confirm every merit badge class enrollment and partial work with Scoutmaster and Troop Advancement prior to registration. Bring Scoutmaster approved blue card to all Merit Badge events.
$25 per Boy Scout
All Reservations are Nonrefundable.
Parking available on property.
Attendance on both days is required to complete the merit badge and take-home project.

Thanks to all of you that went on BP 101 and now have the experience to take it to the next level
July 21-22 will be BP 102, Will be leaving church between 8-9am Saturday and returning mid-afternoon Sunday. we plan on going to Elk Meadows near Mt Hood Meadows on the East side of Mt Hood. We can adjust the trip from a 3 mile/800’ elevation gain to a 8 mile/2000’ gain depending on ability and strength of those attending. So please sign up right away so we can plan accordingly.
We will need at least one other adult to attend (although more are always welcome). It is a wilderness area and so limited to 12 heartbeats. If we have more sign ups than this, we can split into two groups, which would require two more adults (at least one having gone on BP101). Also we need one older scout to act as Scout trip leader.
The troop is going backpacking in June and July. We want you all to join us!
Both locations are TBD at this point, until we have our numbers. If you and your parent are planning on going, please let your patrol leader know as soon as possible. Both parents and scouts need to attend Backpacking 101 if they have not been camping with the troop before. On the Backpacking 101 trip we train on the Philmont method of camping as a “Crew” and the importance of “Crew Gear.”

This year we are going to Camp Parsons (link). Nestled within the shadows of the Olympic Mountains and on the edge of the Hood Canal. It is an extra special summer, as Camp Parsons is celebrating its 100 year anniversary. It is renowned as country’s oldest continuous Boy Scout camp West of the Mississippi!
What there’s more? Oh Yes. The pre-trip this year is an awesome Kayak adventure up the Hood Canal, culminating in beach landing at Camp Parsons itself.
