I interpret these dates differently, and I think my interpretation will
clear up your confusion.
1) The list of required Eagle merit badges changes effective April 1, 1999
for everyone in both Scouting and Exploring.
2) The Exploring program split into Exploring and Venturing on August 1
this year, and neither Explorers nor Venturers under the rules of the new
programs can earn Eagle. Explorers who are working on the rank under the
old program rules, and are not otherwise registered with a Troop, have until
December 31, 1999 to complete Eagle - after that date, the option to
complete the Eagle rank while in the Exploring program no longer exists.
Perhaps someone more directly involved with Exploring can comment?
