One would certainly not want to have the Thunderbird event during the
All Hands, but one might consider having it before or after. Mozilla
employees would then effectively be able to attend for no charge (or
perhaps for the cost of a few nights in a hotel), because they could
book a later return flight.

(Note Thanksgiving is the weekend before.)
