My unit cooks by patrol with the adults, JASMs, SPL, & ASPLs eating
together. We typically have 30 on a trip.
As part of my Wood Badge ticket, I put togther a scoring sheet to judge the
patrol meals for the weekend. I started the judging with another adult and
did this for a couple of trips. After that the SPL and one of the ASPLs did
the judging. Two meals are judged on the weekend, but the patrols do
not know which ones it will be. That was 3 years ago, and we still do it
The score sheet includes from how they planned the food for the
weekend, cost, preparation, presentation, sanitation, cleanup and
storage. Points are only awarded, not taken away, and they can receive
bonuses for things like low cost and themes. The winning patrol is
recognized at the fall-in before we depart from the weekend and the
"award" passes. This year we started with a cloth chef's cap. The
winning patrol must add to it. The patrol with the most points at the
end of the year will win a real prize. We have given them ingraved
stainless steel mugs in the past.
Anyone who would like to see the score sheet can privately e-mail me. I
have it in Word for Windows 6 format that I can uuencode.
