The Marana PD Explorer Post #77 has started to plan for their Explorers Night Moves 2019 simulated police exercises. The events are scheduled as of now for July 18th, 19th, and 20th 2019. The scenarios will be situated at secured pre-specified locations within the Town of Marana (away from the public). These locations will be clearly marked with placards and/or tape as to indicate “Police Training”. There isn’t an age restriction as long as they are with an adult. This would be a great opportunity to get some community service hours and to help another Scouting organization. If you have Questions or would like to volunteer please contact Vincent (Jimmy) Rizza at the Marana Police Department at 520-382-2000 or vrizzi@MARANAAZ.GOV
Come enjoy a fun night at Chase Field with your fellow Scouts for the Giants vs. D-backs game on Friday, August 16 including a Postgame Sleepover! Each scout will receive a limited-edition 2019 Scout Night Sleepover patch with the purchase of the Scout Night Ticket Pack.
We look forward to seeing you there!

A Den Chief is a Scout, Venturer or Sea Scout assisting a Cub Scout den. But the story is far more important than those words suggest as the Den Chief:
- Serves as a Scouting role model for the Cub Scouts in the den, as well as the entire pack;
- Promotes Scouting in general and the local troop in particular;
- Encourages the transition of Webelos Scouts into Boy Scouting;
- Holds a leadership position in the troop or crew, thus fulfilling an advancement requirement in the unit.
In addition, a trained Den Chief:
- Assists the den leader with planning and conducting den meetings;
- Understands the Cub Scouting program and the differences between Cub Scouts and other Scouting programs;
- Understands the den leader’s duties and confidently helps lead portions of the den meeting program;
- Knows a variety of resources for age-appropriate activities for Cub Scouts in the den;
- Brings a repertoire of activities that Cub Scouts enjoy.
This training is designed to build on each of these ideas using a framework that will allow the new Den Chief, or perhaps the experienced Den Chief looking for new ideas, to have fun and learn the role.
The following link allows you to launch the online version of the training. Please note that their is no tracking and if you exit from the training prior to the completion of it and without printing your certificate you will have to restart the training from the beginning.

Announcing we have two open slots for Sea Base 2019 – St. Croix U.S. V.I. Scuba Diving Adventure. We will be the FIRST CREW EVER to do this adventure. This is the first time Sea Base is offering scuba diving in St. Croix. The time frame for this is approx. June 2 – June 12, 2019. We are also planning to three days of additional diving after SB. While on the trip we will be in the U. S. Virgin Island’s pristine coral reefs, with sea turtles, countless species of fish, wreck diving and explore the underwater world of St. Croix.
The cost is approx. $2500.00 for the entire trip. Any Scout(s) or Venture(s) male or female 13 years and older are able to attend. If you are a female interested in going you will need to provide a female adult leader as well.
Scouts or Scouters need to be scuba certified before leaving for SB. You can be certified through any accredited scuba diving program. If you are not, no problem, I am willing to help them get certified as well. While on the trip, I will be offering Scouts the chance to get their Advanced Open Water for around $90. You will also have the opportunity to work on several specialty dives as well.
If you or if you know anyone that would be interested in going they can contact me. You contact John Longhofer if you have other questions at 520-990-4442 or email email@example.com
