If you wanted to get trained for Cub Scout BB’s and Archery and missed our local training last weekend, there will be another opportunity to train in Portland…
We have been able to secure a date for the rangemaster training. It will be on June 1st at Scouters’ Mtn. Please have your rangemasters RSVP online at http://www.cpcbsa.org/register so they will know how many to expect the day of training. If you can’t find an answer to your question online, please just let me know. It is free, we just ask you to register.
There is still space for both scouts and parents in the scuba class being offered locally. If you are interested please connect with Floyd Holcom (contact info below).
A message from Floyd…

Groupon is running a great deal on OMSI memberships for the next 5 days with “limited quantities”.
There are two options, on of which is a family membership (could come in handy for a scout outing)…
$65 for a one-year family membership and four vouchers for Omnimax movies or tours of Blueback Submarine (a $130 total value)
- One year of admission to permanent exhibits and labs for two adults and up to four children
- Two guest passes
- Free parking
- Discount on special exhibits
- Discount on food and Science Store merchandise
As an added bonus OMSI offers reciprocal agreements with other science museums…including The Museum of Flight in the Seattle area. Word of warning though…Even though Evergreen Aviation is listed on the list of reciprocal museums, “as the crow flies” they are not far enough away to qualify with an OMSI membership.
Again, the deal states “limited quantities” so act fast…For full details on the Groupon deal, go to http://www.groupon.com/deals/oregon-museum-of-science-and-industry-1?p=1&utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&sid=4ce0c3cd-16fc-4189-810a-777c4bf26abb&division=portland&user=4132c6984dc4a7d832e1df0534df97c0614dc42109386c3fa93a7e3ffb1e14b4&date=20130515&s=body&c=deal_button&d=deal-page&utm_campaign=oregon-museum-of-science-and-industry-1
