HONOR PATROL

HONOR PATROL

This is the TOP award at SWC.

Honor Patrol is denoted by the coveted GOLD BEAD and is awarded to the one patrol that achieves the highest overall score. Score is calculated per the Loading Factors (see below). 

For the uninitiated, this may be a distant goal. For the serious SWC participant, the quest for the GOLD BEAD is serious. We encourage this “Scouting” competition to bring out the BEST in each of us and to show others that we can be in competition while still having fun as Scouts.
