Systems issues and missing e-mail:

Big thanks to those who reported systems issues!

It has come to our attention that some of you who have recently
registered and/or changed the e-mail address on your registration have
not been receiving our periodic general mailings. The issue has been
identified and corrected.

If you have not been receiving our general mailings, the archive is

It's also been reported that some have received error messages when
updating registrations. This issue has also been identified and

If something does not happen as expected (such as an e-mail does not
arrive) or you receive an error message on any of our on-line systems,
please report it! We always respond to such reports promptly.

Activity sign-up - Attendee Information Portal:

Please note that activity sign-up has changed this year!

Diva Las Vegas is a six-day sequence of various activities. Most of the
activities are "no sign-up, just show up" in nature, meaning that all
you will need to do in order to participate is to be a registered DLV
attendee and show up at the proper place and time.

Some of the activities, however, will need something like a sign-up, a
headcount, and perhaps even an advance payment in a few cases.

Activity sign-up time is when you tell us which of these optional
activities you would like to do.

Here's how it works, and this has changed somewhat this year.

On or around March 1, everyone who holds a valid DLV 2015 registration
will receive a personalized Activity Sign-up Invitation via e-mail.

You will sign-up for the optional activities on line via the Attendee
Information Portal which most of you used to register for DLV. (Don't
worry if you have misplaced the URL. It will be sent out again in the
Activity Sign-up Invitation.

Please be watching for your Activity Sign-up Invitation around the first
of the month!

New Attendee Orientation:

We are asking all individuals who have not previously participated in a
Diva Las Vegas event to make every effort to attend our New Attendee
Orientation session on Monday of DLV week at 5:00pm.

We ask that all new attendees please attend, regardless of such things
as time being "out", local residency, familiarity with other TG events,
transition-track status, etc.

The New Attendee Orientation will be held at the same location as our
Get Acquainted Dinner and Welcome Celebration on Monday evening. Exact
location information including such things as a map, contact information
and explicit instructions on exactly where to meet the group in the
venue will appear in the Final Attendee Information, which will come out
the week prior to the big event.

The New Attendee Orientation will be host(ess)ed by Vera and Katie, both
of whom have over 10 years with our program. They will be personally
welcoming each and every new attendee, presenting an overview of things
will be happening, addressing a few frequently-misunderstood items, and
answering your questions or concerns, during the group or in private.

If you have not attended DLV in the past, please be sure to join us on
Monday afternoon for the New Attendee Orientation.

Returnees are welcome to sit in, with the understanding that seats are
reserved for those who have never previously attended and for big/little
sister pairs.

DLV 2015 updates:

Plans for our final evening's Farewell Celebration are now in place.
This will take place in a very nice high-profile facility overlooking
the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. An optional buffet dinner will be

Sunday evening of DLV week will be centered around the Fremont Street
Experience in downtown Las Vegas. There will be a second more secluded
track of activities for those who are uneasy with that much exposure to
the general public.

The DLV 2015 Fantasy Ball will happen on Wednesday evening of DLV week.
"Come as you are or as you want to be!" Costumes and exotic outfits are
encouraged for this activity. This will take place in a well-known
womens' club which has been "bought out" for the occasion!

A group trip to ride the High Roller (the big wheel) is on for Thursday,
with two dining options preceding.

Recurring daily activities will include Katie's Koffee Korner in the
morning, Lunch With Ginger at noon, our Afternoon Social most
afternoons, and Dancing At Paris most evenings.

Watch the Diva Las Vegas Discussion Forum for items entitled "Activity
Highlight", which will give further details of various activities which
are planned. This is on line here:
