Not at all. Alcor Foundation's annual CryoFeast is a welcoming event for
Alcor members, cryonicists and those interested in simply enjoying the
festivities. In a traditional sense, this time of year has been to
celebrate Thanksgiving. In that meaning, it is a festive time to bring and
share foods to eat, exchange ideas for thought, and swap ideas, and share in
the jubilee and rousing cheers of what Alcor Foundation represents in the
community of indefinite life spans (immortality).

There will be a number of locations for Co-Hosts of this year's CryoFeast --
a first time to spread the joy and invite other Alcor members to Co-Host
parties in their own vicinities. The Host is Los Angeles, with Co-Hosts
Boston and the Bay Area, for a few. Each CryoFeast party will be unique.
The Bay Area's party sounds like a lot of fun, especially for turkey eaters!
Boston should be a blast and a lot of really heady folks.

Los Angele's will delight in a variety of delectable dishes with a focus
on guest appearances from authors (for book signings), a virtual appearance
of Vinor Vinge!, and footage of "Future Fantastic," and our special hosts
Fred and Linda Chamberlain of Alcor Foundation.

Alcor is the largest cryonics organization, and responsible for innovative
work in the field of cryonic preservation and research. Members such as
Ralph Merkle and Eric Drexler have made great contributions for our possible
revival to life. Other creative cryonicists such as Fred and Linda
Chamberlain, Mike Perry and Tanya Jones have worked hard over the years
advancing and refining Alcor's development.

In keeping with the tradition of Thanksgiving but giving it a futuristic
spin, the CryoFeast makes for a good party.
