Mike, please explain where the May 1 date comes from.
I understood the April 1, 1999 date is the beginning of the new Eagle
requirements for all those Scouts, 17 and under, who had not completed
an Eagle Board of Review.
I can understand that if a Scout who turns 18 on or before March 31 and
has completed all Eagle requirements except his Eagle board of review,
he may complete the board of review under old requirements within the
timeframe set forth in the current advancement guide. I believe an 18
year old cannot earn additional merit badges.
Yours in Scouting,
