Useful Event Tokens

So there has been a growing trend in recent years for events to give out custom site tokens -- something more or less appropriate to the day. Some are generic; more and more events are doing customized pewter castings, since pewter is getting very popular locally.

Last weekend's event was unique, though: they gave out faux hurley balls. The balls aren't really usable -- they're much too light and soft to actually play with. But they turn out to be far more useful for all that, because they turn out to make most excellent cat toys.

Merlin is currently raising quite a racket, since the ball keeps getting caught in his claws and going flying. Haven't actually seen a cat toy get him this worked up in ages...
