Your Pathfinder Fair committee strives to make the Fair interesting for Pathfinders as well as visitors. Special events may vary year to year, but Drill Downs and Drill Teams remain popular. A team has done research on the Pathfinder Drill as we have noticed a slight breakdown in the consistency of the Pathfinder Drill in our conference. Therefore, a document, Pathfinder Club Drill: Clarifications, was developed to help clarify and is included in this section. Continue reading
The Pathfinder Parade is the beginning of the Fair activities, starting at 9:00 am.
Come prepared to have a float in the parade and help to make this year’s parade the best and most colorful ever. The floats will be judged during line up so that your float can display its ribbon during the parade. Floats should be a Pathfinder project, with club members designing, building and decorating. Judging begins at 8:30am at line-up site. Floats will receive either a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place ribbon. Points are not added to yearly points. Continue reading

Pathfinder Day is a day each year when the club is featured in the church service. Pathfinder Day is a special time for recognition and encouragement; a day to strengthen support from the church and Pathfinder families. By having a Pathfinder Day program in your church, you are giving your Pathfinders a greater sense of belonging to the family of God. Your pastor is responsible for the church service and the extent of Pathfinder participation is his decision. Ask your pastors what they would like to see happen that will help to make this Pathfinder Day a total church ministry.
The Pathfinder Investiture Service is the annual service where Friend through Master Guide pins are presented. At most Investitures, the AY Honors from the last quarter are also presented plus other awards such as Reading Course Certificates, Good Conduct Ribbons, and Pathfinder of the Year Awards. Most clubs present honor patches as they are completed throughout the year (first quarter honors in are December). Continue reading
