I was waiting for Paul Wolf to answer this, but I know he is rather busy
this week. He spoke to John Dalrymple at the national office and was told
that adding the Board of Review to the list of requirements did not change
the policy that the board of review for ANY rank can be held after the
Scout's 18th birthday, so nothing has changed in this regard.
BTW: It is really six months of leeway after the 18th birthday when the
board can be held. In the first three months nothing special need be done.
In the next three months there must be a letter attached to the application
when it is submitted to the national office, written by an adult, explaining
the reason for the delay, but the board is still held without prior approval
of anybody. It is after six months that the national office must give prior
approval for the board to be held.
I'm sure you knew that but just wanted to make sure others reading the post
got the full story.
