Ganeodiyo Lodge #417 R2 Rededication 1990

Identification AideMatthew Crance sends along an image of the Ganeodiyo #417 R2 which is not currently pictured on OA Images.

According to Matt,

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).
