The giant light up Brothers Badge is of an unknown age but has been around since at least 1948. The actual age of the Gear is unknown. The Gear can be seen hanging in the 4 Maiden Ln House in the late ’80s. In was again in the Maiden House from 1997 till the theft in 2007.
It was stolen by Tau Chapter on the weekend of 04/23/07 by cutting through the power cord (live wire). Tau also apparently stole the Bum Be Gone. More recently Nu Gamma Chapter stole it from Tau. It was then stolen back by Tau and then by Zeta Gamma before ultimately winding up at Sigma. It is currently believed to be somewhere in The Great Lakes Region.
The Rho Alumni Association is currently searching for the Rho Gear and a reward has been offered for it’s return. Please contact us if you know of its current location.
