Until I see the 1999 Requirements Book, this is an educated guess, but
my answer would be no, they are no longer on the required list.
The book will PROBABLY say, "For Boards of Review for Eagle Scout, held
between 1/1/99 and 4/1/99, either the old or new requirements may be
However, it MAY say something like, "For Boards of Review for Star,
Life, and Eagle, held between 1/1/99 and 4/1/99, either the old or new
requirements may be used"

Here I'm pretty certain the answer would be NO - you may use old or new
but not pick from both. Even if the option mentioned above is allowed,
a Scout would have to choose. Probably only Hiking in this case.
We'll just have to wait and see.
