 I like your post Rudi.

You say some things that I believe in and that really apply here.  Above all
we do not have enough people in the cryonics movement.  We certainly do not
want to turn anyone away.  We all need to work together.  Who knows, there
might be some folks attending TFDG that are truly interested in cryonics.  I
kind of doubt we will find them there. 

I think the folks that attend the TFDG are there for a party and do not
seriously care about being frozen.  If they did care, they could, or would
have already contacted some cryonics organization. So it might be pointless
to try and explain it to some one with a beer in one hand wearing a frozen T

The cost of trying to recruit people from that group might be better spent
in trying to promote the people around you. 
How about buying the attendees mail list and contacting them with a flyer?  
How about doing a mass mailing to all the folks in the town? 
How about buying a link on their web site? 
How about sending a free video (the one I made or one like it) to all the
folks that ask for more or any information?
How about doing more with Schools and offering  free presentations?

The list goes on.  I am sure that time and money could be better directed
than TFDG.
