It would be intersting to add - "Help Pathfinders discover Jesus" as one of your poll questions for the staff. That is why I do Pathfinders as I enjoy the other parts of Pathfindering.

Out of the available choices....

I chose Drilling. I was on a Precision and Fancy Drill team as a Pathfinder, and I've brought some of that to my club as Director. And the kids love it. Mostly because there's alot of parades in the area that allow us to showcase for the public our drill routines against JROTC clubs, other paramilitary clubs, and other such clubs... those clubs REALLY give us competition as compared to Pathfinder clubs in our area. Although I believe that Pathfinders, of course, are better than all of them combined ;)

I'd have to agree with Mr. Mike. There is nothing like watching a pathfinder give his/her heart to the Lord.

I'll have to agree with Philip on this one. I have had about 5-6 years of drilling experience both with Pathfinders and from 2 years in a JROTC unit at school. So, I've seen both sides of the coin, as it were. It has helped me immensely to have had such crosstraining. It is a bit difficult at times for me to do some of the more complex drill moves, as my reaction and coordination lag slightly due to my cerebral palsy. Any advice for that???

Maybe... one idea would be to ask your drillmaster to give a slightly longer preparatory command? To give you half a second's worth of time? I don't know...

The cerebral palsy issue is a neurological one, and I don't know if there's anything you can do besides practicing and maybe a slightly longer pause for your preparatory command... *shruggin* anyone else have any ideas?

I chose drilling, but I have to say that Bible Bowl is right up there with it. :-)

I have a hard time choosing between some of those options. I like my pathfinders, I like camping, and I like drilling. There are a few other things that weren't listed that I enjoy about pathfinders as well.

I think what I like best about Pathfinders is that it is a life style. I always tell my kids, your not a Pathfinder 2 hours a week, your a Pathfinder 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It's about teaching life skills and and developing young people to be the bset they can be with God's help and guidance.

That is a good thing to tell them!

Not only do I tell them, I live it as well, because if you don't live it, they wont either, Many of our family activities revolve around Pathfinders.

Post subject:  The passion to share and to explore

As a child I lasted only 6 months in Pathfinders. Hated it. Why would anyone leave a perfectly good house to go outside? Things changed. Especially after serving as a student missionary in Indonesia for a year. When I came back, a buddy suggested we volunteer to work with Pathfinders. Have been at it for over 20 years now.

I have two favorite parts. I love to push then envelope of a childs experience. To take them places they have never been before, to travel, to explore, to see the wonders of God's creation. I love it when their view of the world changes, when they realize that there is so much more out there there normal daily grind. So many new things to see, and do, and taste, and then share with others.

The second part is often happens during the first. New experiences give a chance for new discussion and learning, or at least a new perspective on something. So now, God's word, and His plan, and His purpose can be shared and explored a little bit more.

Going and doing, give rise to learning and sharing.

I look forward to heaven, because there is so much more of God's genius that I want to study! And of course, if all my brothers and sisters can come along, (all six billion and counting) then that would be even better!

I have to say that after 1/2 a year as a couselor, I really enjoy the closer interaction with the younger pathfinders. I never thought that I would be saying that. I always thought that I would be an instructor, but I like being a counselor.

Yes, last year I was a full time councilor. It was lots of fun, and it is awesome to get the kids to think about spiritual things. As councilors we have a big influence with the kids and it is important to point them to Jesus. This year I'm an instructor and teacher and going to college.

It is SO awesome to see kids who are shy come out of their box little by little, and also to befriend the troublemakers. That's my favorite thing!! :P

It's hard to decide between Camping and Drilling, but I have to choose camping... so much fun. :)

Camping is totally awesome! ...But it rains 3/4 times my club goes, so all of my club is experienced in the area of camping in the rain. Someone even suggested we submit a " weather camping " honor :D

I love both... since you chose camping I guess I'll choose drilling :wink:

I wouldn't be able to choose between the two. I like both of them really well.

How about drill competitions at camporees? That's cool, even though you have to have a routine ahead of time, so it's not exactly the same.

That is the best of both worlds. Too bad my conference doesn't do that anymore. We do Bible Bowl and Drill seperate from camporee.

I love camping.

But really, I love everything about pathfindering.

From mommorizing Bible texts to marching to honors.
I love them all.
I always wanted to go to pathfinder events in Colorado, but our church haven't been too strong in the Pathfinder field, so our club haven't had too many experience in Pathfindering.
Yah.. We really need lots of help in Pathfindering. I think our youths have the will, but there's no leader to lead. :cry:

Oh well..
God bless..

As an AC I'm involve with a lot of the Pathfinders Activity, but I do miss teaching the honors.

Author:  jomegat [ Thu Nov 29, 2007 3:10 pm ]
Post subject: 

I love honors too, and for me, there is no question but that teaching them is my favorite aspect of Pathfindering. But I love camping too, especially "primative" camping a la backpacking trips.

Would it be cheating to say my favorite is teaching honors on camping trips?
