1. Formation and ceremonies - Special attention will be given to the opening ceremonies and the formal personal inspection. Inspectors will look for straight lines, precise movements, position of attention, proper posting of colors, and Pathfinder participation in ceremonies such as pledge, law, and prayer.
2. Uniforms - Inspectors will look for the basic uniform as described in "The Youth Leaders Handbook" and the section on uniforms in this policy book.
3. Personal Appearance
5. Drill - At some time during the club meeting, a few minutes should be scheduled to demonstrate that the club can march and that the club has a well-organized program for learning drill. Most clubs include Pathfinders with different levels of marching skill. During the demonstration you may demonstrate your normal drill instruction methods with separate classes for beginners through advanced and perhaps a fancy drill team. The inspectors will want to see the following:
6. Club Discipline - Do the Pathfinders follow directions quickly and well? Are they where they should be, doing what they should be doing?
7. Craft Participation - Are all the Pathfinders actively and productively involved in the classes? Do they take care of tools and equipment? Do they clean up after class and put the tools and supplies away?
8. Movement Between Activities - A club that is well organized, disciplined and enthusiastic should lose very little time during the change from one activity to the next. This includes fall in and dismissal at the beginning and end of club meeting.
9. Flags and Guidons - Flags and guidons must be placed in correct positions.
10. Program - The minute-by-minute nightly program should be posted on a wall where all can see it.
11. Attendance - Count Pathfinders age 10-15 only. Do not count Teen counselors or adult staff. Ninety percent and above will get ten points, eighty percent and above - nine points, etc. Absences, which are excused according to your club’s regular excused absence policy, will not count against your score.
