Words to the Wise
  • Save a (plastic?) tree! --- bring and reuse your badge holder from last Snowball.
  • Snowball (registration, hospitality, and the games room) opens at 4:00 PM on Friday.
We want your SOCKS!

Operation Happy Sock creates and delivers catnip toys to homeless cats in animal shelters. At Snowball we will make these simple toys, called "Happy Socks," by putting catnip in the toe of an old sock and tying a knot at the ankle.

We welcome donated socks that meet these guidelines:

  • Clean – please run them through the washer first.
  • Any type of socks (sweat socks and fuzzy socks are terrific!) will work -- although thin synthetics or nylons may not be durable enough.
  • Any size (baby and kids’ sizes too) are welcome.
  • Even socks with holes are fine – we are experts at making a toy from almost any sock!

It’s time to clean out that sock drawer and admit that all those lone socks will probably never meet their mates again. Give 'em a second life as a Happy Sock!

Thank you on behalf of homeless cats everywhere!

Please note: This event will take place Saturday afternoon. At registration, we will have a box for sock donations, or better yet, bring your socks to Room 209 and make the toys yourself!

Snowball is now on Facebook!!
Snowball now has a Group on Facebook -- our name is "cnjm snowball". Use it to connect to other attendees and learn the latest updates about Snowball. It is a Closed Group, so you will have to ask to join. The Group is open to all current Snowball registrants as well as any interested Mensans. Contact the registrar with any questions. Note: If Andrea, the Snowball registrar, will not know who you are, please drop her an email stating your membership number or local group. Send info to:
