BSA makes a few changes to its requirements at the beginning of each new year and 2011 is no exception. The America Jane website has all the current information, but here’s the lowdown.
Requirement 6 gains a subpoint. Boys can now use the EDGE method to teach three requirements of an Eagle-required merit badge. Awesome!
Apparently there was an error with the 2009 printing of the Boy Scout Handbook, in which Bugler was listed as an option for fulfilling leadership requirements for the Eagle Scout rank. This has been corrected with the most recent edition. That error never made it to the digital archives of America Jane.
Scouts who have already begun these merit badges can complete their work using the former requirements.
