Member Spotlight! Bill Bookout

One of our members, Bill Bookout, was recently profiled by William Purkey in his bi-monthly column in Western & Eastern Treasures!  Thanks to William for the shout out to our club and for sharing Bill's story.  In addition, we received a very kind letter from local shop owner Jerry Barbee regarding the article as well.

Bill's article from Western & Eastern Treasures, February 2018:


A note from Jerry Barbee, proprietor of Barbee Metal Detectors:

I am a subscriber to Western & Eastern Treasure magazine.  I look forward to receiving it each month and especially my latest issue which contained the article about Bill Bookout by William Purkey. I’ve known  Bill for years and I enjoyed the article so much that I’m keeping the magazine in a special place to show my customers .  To me Bill is as likeable, kind and friendly person as I’ve ever met and I’m proud to inform people that I know him personally, as well as William Purkey. I am continuing to give the club cards to my customers in hopes that membership will continue to increase.

I thank the club for educating the public on the art of metal detecting and the Code Of Ethics which should be used in order to keep metal detecting solvent.

Jerry Barbee

Thanks to Jerry for such kind words and all his support over the years for the club.  We hope your customers will join us too!
