We have recently received a number of questions about the NAD policy on Pathfinder Class A uniform pants, skirts etc. The current edition of the Pathfinder Staff Manual (2007 edition, page 44 & 45) and the uniform section on the NAD Pathfinder website (http://www.pathfindersonline.org/uniform) show different standards. The website covers the full range of options as voted by the NAD Pathfinder Committee in February of 2000 (Action PA 2000.19). We are sorry to say that the Pathfinder Staff Manual information on the subject is not complete.
TIMING:In an effort to be fair yet streamline the response time following the second reading of the questions in the testing process we have made the following changes to the response time.
Previously, following the second reading of the testing question, the teams were given 10 seconds to determine the answer to the question. Next the scribe was given 10 seconds to write down the answer, for a total time of 20 seconds. The scribe would then give the answer sheet to the grader who would write down the score based on the answer shown on the screen or send the answer sheet to the judges. If the question required additional time to answer the question, the team would raise their hand or a flag was raised to indicate more time was necessary. The answer was given from the front when all hands or flags were lowered.
Beginning this year, 2014-2015, at all levels, the following timing procedure will be implemented:
