The passing of a dear friend and Black Forest Star Party pillar

Bob Edmonston, whose bus is pictured below, died on July 21, 2015.  Bob helped to run the BFSP since 2002.  His bus served as the “headquarters” for the club for many years.  Bob always would lend a hand whenever someone needed help.  Bob will be missed.
