I had the pleasure of meeting and watching Mr. Burch this weekend, and purchased bolos for both myself and my son. The numbers on the back of our bolos are 45,543 and 45,727. And he probably carved about 50 of them this weekend.

I have one of a white mustached army colonel that I earn from Bill at Camp Meriwether when he saw myself and a few other boys cleaning up an area. Mine is numbered 17,220.

My name is Gary Dollar and I travel with Bill to various scout events. You can send me an email and I will forward Bill's order form so you can purchase a bolo tie.

Gary:

I too am looking for a bolo tie of Bill's. I had the pleasure of meeting and working with him at PTC back in 1978. I have a neckerchief slide of his still, but have lost the "old Scoutmaster" bolo that he gave me at the time. I was on staff at the Rocky Mountain Scout Camp when he served during a week at PTC. An order form would be much appreciated, along with a "hello" to Bill.

Yours in Scouting, Rich

Gary,

I was at Philmont two weeks ago and would like to acquire several bolo's from you. Can you email me the best way to do this. I am looking at acquiring 30-90 bolo's.

Gary,
My husband and oldest son have B.B. Bolos and I would LOVE to get one more for my younger son and future Eagle Scout. Is it at all possible to get an order form? Thank you so very, VERY much!

I was lucky enough to get a handful from my Grandfather who was a scout director in Spokane. The earliest number that I have is 4,577. He also gave me one that is a guy in a chef hat but on the back it has the initials CEL and the number 44. Does anyone have any idea who that is? The carving looks identical to Bill's work.

My name is Stefanie Ward, formerly Stefanie Kirkendall. I grew up on Spokane and my brothers had Bill as a scout Master. Iam now serving as the Stake Primary President and am planning our 11 yr old camp out. This year I really want to thank our leaders in an amazing way and remembered Bill and his incredible Bolos from my youth. I have about 25 leaders and would be deeply grateful for any help I can get to round up some Bolos! Any assistance would be so much appreciated!

I have about 15 Bill Burch bolo ties that I would like to sell if anyone is interested. They are still in their sealed plastic containers.

I've seen these around for years, but I still don't have one. I'd be really interested in getting one(or 3)
