If the BSA follows *many* past precedents, they will be required to earn the
new Merit Badges. The requirements that will apply will be those in effect
when they appear in front of Boards of Review for the various ranks. This
is why the BSA in the past has announced such changes in their various
publications months, if not more than a year, in advance.
Given that, I read parts of Mike's posts to my troop last night to inform
them of what will likely come to pass next year.
