>From what I heard at PTC about a month ago, any changes will not apply
until the next printing of the Handbook. I don't recall exactly what was
on this forum, but this is what I think I heard,
1) The requirement for Safety merit badge had been dropped.
2) Personal Fitness is now a required merit badge.
3) Swimming which was an optional choice with Sports and Personal Fitness
is now coupled as a choice with Cycling and Hiking.
This should still leave a total of 12 required with 9 optional.
If anyone can confirm this information, please let us know.
