Yes, I think this idea has much merit. If every cryonics person away from a 
cryonic centre was able to run an Omni style competition in their local 
paper even once it would have a great impact. Because it is a *local* paper 
the person would have got at least one other local person interested, and 
from the competitors' point of view the chances of winning would be higher. 
Given that CI's suspension requirements seem to be fixed, and that they 
remain so, it should be possible for trusts to grow enough to enable such 
competitions to be run from income if the trusts can be held for decades 
without drawing an income before.
