I’ll add this image to the original post.

State of the Hobby – Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 X1 on Neckerchief

Sometimes you win and sometimes you don’t. An auction recently ended on eBay for a Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 X1 on Neckerchief.

Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction results for the next few months.

Three bidders made five bids on this auction which started at $ 99.99. the winning bidder got it for $ 152.50 and went back to increase his maximum bid if it was required.

For those paying attention, the neckerchief had been available the previous week for a minimum bid of $ 149.99 and closed without a bid. So the underbidder and the actual winner could have one it the previous week for a few dollars less.



Discovery – Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 OA Stage Project R3

I had recently commented that while I enjoyed tracking and cataloguing new issues, what I really liked about hosting this site was finding out about previously uncatalogued issues.

Matt Crance posted on ht Camp Babcock Hovey Facebook site a discovery of an uncatalogued Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 patch issued for particpating in a project for their OA Stage Project in 2005-2006.

This week we go back to 2005. That was the year that work began on the most recent version of the OA Stage. The wooden structure was complete by the end of 2005 but would not receive a metal roof until 2006. There are currently no know pictures from the build of the stage, and would be greatly appreciated. We are featuring a never before seen patch that was issued by Ganeodiyo Lodge to helpers that helped build the stage. This is an extremely rare patch from Ganeodiyo Lodge. Thanks to all that helped make the OA Stage happen as it will be enjoyed by many years of campers.

“The establishment of civil and religious liberty was the motive which induced me to the field — the object is attained — and it now remains to be my earnest wish and prayer, that the citizens of the United States could make a wise and virtuous use of the blessings placed before them.” —George Washington (1783)


Look Back – Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 R2 Rededication 1990

Back in March 2008 I posted an image of the Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 R2.

This one is still a need of mine if anyone has one for sale or trade.

According to Matt Crance,

Got this picture from a friend- one had to attend to get the patch. 100 made about 40 participants. Reportedly part of the ceremony included the burning of the rest of the patches that were not given out.

It certainly is one of the toughest patches from Ganeodiyo Lodge (and still a need of mine if anyone has one laying around).

Look Back – Unlisted Neckerchief Lodge 417 Ganeodiyo ?

Ten years ago in December 2005, we were talking about a newly discovered issue from Ganeodiyo Lodge #417.

This is a bleg for information regarding what is apparently an unlisted Neckerchief from Lodge #417 Ganeodiyo. The neckerchief is similar in design to the N1.5 but rather than having “61” in red, this one has “59” in red at the bottom of the neckerchief.

The N1.5 is dated “61” in 1961 the 2H Conclave was held at Crumhorn Mountain Scout Reservation which is the Council Camp of Onteroraus Lodge 402. Therefore the N1.5 would either be a NOAC Contingent Neckerchief (NOAC held in 1961) or and Area Conclave Contingent Neckerchief.

Since there was no NOAC in 1959 my best guess is both the 1961 and the 1959 neckerchiefs are Lodge Contingent Neckerchiefs to the 2H conclaves.

Area 2-H 1959 Conclave Neckerchief

As you can see, the neckerchief is white with 2 red arrows, a red Area II-H and 59.

Matt Crance had later identified it as a Lodge #417 Contingent Neckerchief to the 1959 Area 2-H conclave.

Here is the 417 N1.5 Neckerchief.

Look Back – Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 60th Anniversary Flap S26

Seven years ago in May 2008 we were reporting on a new issue from Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 a flap issued for their 60th Anniversary designated the S26.

Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 later merged in 2010 with Ty-Ohni Lodge #95 to form form Tschipey Achtu #95

Tschipey Achtu Lodge #95 2015 NOAC Fundraiser Set S15/X9

Tschipey Achtu Lodge #95 has issued three fundraiser sets for the 2015 NOAC. The second of the three sets, all which share a similar design depicts the Turtle Totem of Ganeodiyo Lodge on the Flap. The chevron also has Grey Smoke rising from the fire and is also used with the S14 set.
