The San Diego Argonauts would like to thank Bill Edwards and his family for remembering the club after he passed.
Family donated quite a number of beautifully crafted hulls, supplies and tools. Bill’s talent for wood working is clear from these hulls. Each quickly found new homes with club members who will carry on Bill’s passion for RC model boating.
Thank you Argonauts member Bill Edwards, daughter Joauna, and grandson Anthony.
A service for Bill Edwards will be held at Miramar cemetery February 12 at 11:30AM.
PS…anyone who got one of Bill’s hulls on 1/25/2020 and is looking for the plans, we’ve found those those. Contact Webmaster@sandiegoargonauts.com for more info.
