Rick, and all
While the Eagle Guidelines are silent on Venturing, the Program is so new that
not all of the bugs have been worked out, yet. I suspect, that no one on any of
the National Committees intended to exclude Venturers from working on Eagle.
Since Venturing has replaced the traditional Explorer Posts, (BSA program for
high school aged youth), I suspect that when the dust settles, you will find
that the Eagle is still available to male Venturers, who have at least earned
1st Class with their troop. Perhaps one of the pros who lurk here can shed some
light. Or perhaps Scott Smith or Mike Walton can help out here. Before telling
the Venturer no, lets be sure.
