Was given a copy of DE'd material from All Hands Conference tonight -
Boldly stated on the front is:
(heading) 1999 Rank Advancement and Required Merit Badges (in Bold)
Changes have been made in the Boy Scout advancement program for the
Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks. Changes have also been
made to the list of required merit badges for the Eagle Scout Rank.
The following new rank requirements for Tenderfoot, Second Class, and
First Class will be effective April 1, 1999.
Safety and Sports have been dropped from the list of required merit
Then under another heading (still on front page):
(heading) Merit Badges Required for Eagle Scout Rank (bold)
The following list of required merit badges for the Eagle Scout rank
will be effective April 1, 1999.
(with each merit badge then shown)
What we have been told is that there will be no 'use either old/new'
time frame, anything before 4/1 will be under old, and 4/1 and after
will be new. (except for LFL Explorers who will stay with old)
So gather we will stay under the 1998 Requirement Book until 4/1/99 when
the 1999 book will take effect.
