Knot Ninja  

Twice(ish) each year, we hold a competition to find out who can tie the 8 basic Scouting knots the fastest. Each patrol sends the member who is best at tying knots to represent their patrol in a tie-off. The winner is designated "Knot Ninja" - an honor held for six months and designated by a special black rope that is worn by the Ninja alone. Past Ninjas are recognized with a special red/blue/black rope, a permanent honor, and listed in the Hall of Fame below.
