There seem's to be a misunderstanding that there are 2 cutoff dates for the
changes in Eagle Requirements. This is not true. The changes will take
place for everyone on
April 1, 1999.
The December 31, 1999 cutoff date for Exploring (not Venturing) is not for
Because Exploring is now Learning for Life, those Explorers that were
working on Eagle
may continue to do so until 12/31/99. After that date no one in Exploring
can earn Eagle.
>From the article in ProSpeak, June 1998, "Will boys be able to earn their
Eagle rank in
Exploring? No. They will need to earn their Eagle rank as members of a Boy
Sea Scout ship, or Venturing crew. Only boys who have attained first-class
rank in a Boy
Scout troop may continue toward Eagle as a Venturer or Sea Scout. Boys
on the Eagle rank in Exploring may continue to do so until December 31, 1999."
