Muster Point

I always wondered what was meant to "pass muster".
Muster Point
A muster point (also known as 'Assembly Point') is an assembly point where everyone meets in the event of an emergency. Muster Point is primarily a Canadian term. Muster point signs indicate the exact location of the assembly area. They are required by many safety associations. Reflective materials are encouraged for increased visibility.

Signage installation should be a safe distance away from a building, worksite or construction zone.
Typical mounting is between 48" to 72" off the ground or over 96" when mounting in parking lots where vehicles may obstruct the view of the signage.

For more information on Muster Point Signs watch this short video.

Pass Muster

Meet a required standard, as in That yard cleanup won't pass muster with Mom. This expression originally meant "to undergo a military review without censure," musterreferring to an assembling of troops for inspection or a similar purpose. [Late 1500s]
