Five weeks to go:

That's right! Diva Las Vegas 2022 is only five weeks away!

Big thanks go out to our DLV 2022 volunteers, who have done a bang-up
job of putting together a very exciting and enjoyable schedule of
activities for our upcoming event!
. . . . .

Welcome to those who recently registered or joined our mailing list!

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. You may
simply reply to this mailing with any questions or concerns.
. . . . .

If you have not registered for our big 2022 event, there is till time
to do so. You can register on line here:

https://divalas.vegas/cgi-bin/dlv/aip.cgi

Please note that you must be registered by Friday, September 30, in
order to get in on the first round of Activity Sign-Up. Details of
Activity Sign-Up appear below.
. . . . .

We have a couple of activities this year that will require advance
ticket purchase which may sell out prior to our official Activity
Sign-Up time and these are discussed in the items below. If you want
to participate in these activities, you will need to follow the
instructions noted below.
. . . . .

As of Thursday evening, we have 165 individuals signed up to attend.

This includes 29 significant others as of this time.

For DLV 2022, we have registered attendees from all continents except
Antarctica!
. . . . .

As of this week, Clark County, Nevada, which includes the Las Vegas
metro area, is at a Covid-19 Community Risk Level of "Low", and has
held this Low risk level since mid August.

As of Thursday, the New York Times, which continues to track Covid
statistics daily, shows Nevada as having a cases-per-100,000 level
of 8, which is less than half of the overall US average of 19.

Clark County, specifically, currently has a level of 6 cases per
100,000, still lower than the Nevada overall average.

All signs are still pointing to a safe and enjoyable event in October.

As of this time, there are no overall mask or vaccination requirements
for the Las Vegas area. Some facilities, however, may require masks and
or/proof of vaccination to enter. As of this time, we are aware of no
venues we plan to use for our activities that have these requirements,
but it is suggested that everyone bring their proof of vaccination cards
in case they may be needed.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Activity Sign-Up starts in two weeks:

Shortly after the first of October, everyone holding a Diva Las Vegas
2022 registration will receive a note via email inviting them to sign up
for optional activities.

This will include a link to a personal Activity Sign-Up screen.

Most of the activities on our schedule are "No sign-up, just show up"
in nature, meaning all that you need to do to participate is to be a
registered DLV attendee and show up at the time and place.

However, some of them do require such things as a heacount, an advance
sign-up, and in some cases a pre-payment or additional action. You sign
up for these at Activity Sign-Up time which will begin next week.

Due to various circumstances, this year we have a number of activities
which will require special sign-up procedures not covered by our usual
Activity Sign-Up process, and in two cases, action on your part before
our usual Activity Sign-Up begins. These have or will be discussed in
these mailings, and will be noted as "Special Out-Of-Procedure sign-up
required" on the Activity Sign-Up screen.

Also please note that Activity Sign-Up is not optional in order to to
remain a registered DLV attendee. If you do not wish to do any of the
optional activities listed on the screen, just leave the selections
blank and submit the form. This reconfirms your registration and lets
us know that you are alive and well and still planning to join us.

Please be watching for your Activity Sign-Up email!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Getting ready for the big event:

During the week prior to the big event, we will release our Final
Attendee Information.

This will be available on the web via your Attendee Information Portal,
which is the link you received shortly after you registered. This will
be re-sent in your invitation to sign up for optional activites.

The Final Attendee Information will include things such as several
versions of the final and accurate schedule, any late Notices or
changes, local contact information, etc.
. . . . .

When you get to Las Vegas, You may check in for the event and (if
needed) obtain a name tag at the following locations and times:

* On Sunday, October 23 at the evening Informal Welcome Gathering a the
Flamingo.

* On Monday, October 24 at the Flamingo, seating area by the Spa
Elevators, at 1:00pm

* On Tuesday, October 25 at the daily lunch at Harrah's at noon.

* Any other activity marked "Check-In Available" on the final schedule.
(Name tags may or may not be available.)

At times when we anticipate a high demand for checking in, this year
we will have two lines, one for those who just need to check in, and
another for those who need to have name tags printed on site.
. . . . .

Wearing DLV name tags at our activities is strongly encouraged but in
most cases it is optional.

You have options this year for obtaining your name tag.

1. Print your name tag at home and bring it with you. This saves time
during the check-in process, both for you and for others.

Instructions for printing name tags in advance will come out as the
date of the event approaches.

2. Have your name tag printed on site at designated check-in times and
at the larger activities during the first few days of the event.

3. Use your name tag from a previous DLV event. "Once a valid DLV name
tag, always a valid DLV name tag."
. . . . .

The DLV Group Text will be our primary means of sending out important
information during our upcoming event.

We strongly suggest that all attendees who have text-capable cell phones
subscribe to this service.

It will also be handy for attendees who want to quickly send out queries
such as "Anybody wanna share a taxi from the Flamingo?" and such.

You can subscribe to the DLV Group Text at Activity Sign-Up time or via
the Attendee Information Portal.

This year you will have the option to redact your cell phone number (or
email address) from DLV Group Text messages that you send out.

Diva Las Vegas recollections wanted:

Diva Las Vegas 2022 will be our 25th. annual event. We've had DLV
events each year since 1997 with the exception of 2020, due to the
Covid-19 pandemic.

Sarah, one of our long-time volunteers and attendees, would like to put
together an organized compendium of "DLV Lore", including both prose and
poetry.

Sarah writes:

I'm looking for anyone who has been writing down their stories
from Diva Las Vegas.

I would love to collect some of what is currently only an Oral History
of the event. The stories can be anything that you felt needed to be
recorded.

My stories are mostly things that happened to me that made me laugh at
the situation, but others are related to the value the event and the
people had in my life and understanding who I was and who I was
becoming.
. . . . . . . . . .

If you have anything you would like to contribute to this project,
please do one of the following:

1. Post them in the Diva Las Vegas Discussion Forum, on line at:

viewforum.php?f=2

2. Email them to: dlv@divalas.vegas

3. Print them out and hand them to Sarah in person during DLV 2022.

Hotel rooms available - two week warning:

Many people are staying at the Flamingo at a group rate which is still
open until September 30th.

To book your room under the DLV rate plan, please visit this URL:

https://book.passkey.com/go/SFDIV2

The Flamingo is a very large long-standing midscale hotel-casino located
right in the heart of the center Strip area. DLV attendees have used
the Flamingo ever since 1998 and no issues have been reported.

As of this writing, the Flamingo is one of the least expensive of all
major hotels in the Center Strip area.

Further information on the Flamingo is available at the main Flamingo
web site, on line here: https://www.flamingolasvegas.com/
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
America's Got Talent tickets:

Those who are interested in going to the America's Got Talent show
at the Luxor on Sunday night the 29th at 6:00 p.m. should buy their
tickets now as they are starting to sell out.

You may buy your tickets on line from the MGM Box Office at the
following URL:

Murder By Association tickets:

Thursday, October 27:

On Thursday, October 27, A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group
will be presenting "Murder BY Association!", an interactive dinner-show
billed as "A Halloween Whodunit", at Lawrys The Prime Rib in Las Vegas.
. . . . .

Here's the plot synopsis:

The Weekender's Club disbanded two years ago after one of the board
members, Evelyn Drawbridge, was found dead at their last gathering.

All was quiet after Evelyn's death was deemed an accident until members
received an anonymous invitation to attend a Masquerade Halloween
Reunion Party in Evelyn's honor at Lawry's Las Vegas.

But who sent the invitation? Was it ... Ben Keetling - The Off OFF
Broadway Producer Cecily Keetlilng - The High Society Debutante Amanda
Emery - Heiress to the Emery-board Fortune Patricia "PEACHES" Mallory -
Creator of the Weekenders Club Andrew Drawbridge Manilow - Evelyn's
Brother
. . . . .

This is a one night only production, and it is expected to sell out
before our normal Activity Sign-Up begins.

The cost per person will be $130, which includes a normal Lawry's Prime
Rib dinner, with other entree options, including vegetarian. The prime
rib dinner normally goes for $55 separately, which makes the actual cost
for the show $75 per person, a bargain when compared to most currently
running Las Vegas shows!
. . . . .

To participate in this activity, please do the following:

1. Phone A Touch of Mystery & More Entertainment Group at 702-497-7936
and reserve your tickets.

2. After you have reserved your tickets, email Robin at argazza@att.net
and she will coordinate things so that you and your party will be seated
with the DLV group.
. . . . .
