One year at one of our camporees the Scouts had to build a fire and boil a
1/2 inch of water in a small pan with a piece of dry spaghetti in it. The
Scouts had to determine when it was soft enough to tie into an overhand
knot. Total time from "go" to "completed knot" was given points. If they
broke the noodle they could still try to tie one of the pieces. The piece
they started with was about 6 inches long giving them a couple of tries.
