Some inaccuaracies here.
Yes: The split in programs did happen
BUT?: the now-Explorers can_not earn Eagle after 12/31/99. The
now-Venturing males who have already earned 1st class in a troop may
still earn Eagle using the same Eagle requirements that Troops use -
and this is not going to cease 12/31/99 for Venturing Crews.
