Cub Scout-Themed Smart Phone Backgrounds Are Here!
Smart phones are everywhere these days. They've practically become an extension of our arms. They contain our contacts, calendars, email and well, everything. They give us the power to connect us to the world. Smart phones help us keep in touch with our friends and they can even help us keep track of our kids. Of course, in Scouting, smart phones can be so much more. They open up the wonders of Geo Caching, for example, or they help us know about the weather on a campout. Even on a daily basis, our phones keep us connected to the digital Scouting community. That said, forget for a second about all your phone's apps and contacts. Because NOW your smart phone can be personalized to reflect your passion for Cub Scouting! That's right. make...View

Oh, and a pretty amazing hammock. Can't forget the hammock. All you had to do was comment on one of four pictures that we posted on our Facebook Page. So the big question: Did you win?
