OMSI (Lewis & Clark film), Portland
January 30, 2003
On a wet and gloomy morning, 32 Obsidians and 11 nonmembers went to OMSI in Portland.
Featured was the Omnimax Lewis & Clark film, which all attended; then a split group
with 14 touring the USS Blueback, a 1959 vintage diesel submarine, and the rest of us
seeing the film “Bears”.
In addition we enjoyed the variety of exhibits and hands-on displays plus lunch at their
cafe with a nice view of the downtown skyline.
A very enjoyable experience for all.
The overflow crowd—an Obsidian Bus Record—required using the largest Oregon
Coachway bus, ably driven by Kurt Hand.
Riders were: Ethel Allen, Don & Ewart Baldwin, Mike Barkhuff, Dick & Mary Bentsen,
Gayle Berge, Marian & John Borchardt, Mary Bridgeman, Nicole Chase, Mary Lee Cheadle,
Kent Christofferson, Rosemary Etter, Ruth & Ryan Eveland, Bea Fontana, Bev Halter,
