Welcome - Just three weeks to go:

That's right, just three weeks to go!

Welcome to those who just registered or just joined our mailing list. If
you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. We're looking
forward to seeing you in just three weeks!

Activity sign-up starts tomorrow! See notice below.
. . . . .

As of this writing we have 147 individuals signed up to attend. Very
rough projections are converging on a total headcount in the 150 to 160
range for this year.

There are several significant changes to Activity Sign-up and the Final
Attendee Information (formerly called Large Final Mailing) this year.
Please note the information presented below.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Activity Sign-up starts Sunday:

Activity sign-up is an important milestone on the road to Diva Las
Vegas. This is when you tell us which of the many optional activities
you want to participate in.

Most of our activities are on what we call a "no sign-up, just show up"
basis, meaning all you need to do in order to attend is to be a
registered DLV attendee.

Several of them, however, require such things as a sign-up, a headcount,
or maybe even a payment in advance.

We take care of this at activity sign-up time.


On Sunday, March 1, everyone who currently holds a valid DLV 2015
registration will receive a special mailing containing an invitation to
sign up for optional activities.


If this (no invitation to sign-up for activities) happens to you, please
e-mail dlv@geekbabe.com and explain the circumstances.

This mailing will contain the link to your personal Attendee Information
Portal and specific instructions on how to sign up for activities.

If you want to get a jump on things, you don't have to wait for your
e-mail. You can simply return to your Attendee Information Portal (the
link you received when you registered for DLV) at any time after
midnight on Sunday (CDT) and begin the sign-up process. Just click on
the green "Activity Sign-Up" tile and fill in the screen.

If you change your mind on anything, it's very easy to return to the
Activity Sign-Up screen and make changes.

Starting this year, it's also very easy to see a summary of the
activities that you are signed up for.

MyDLV members can sign-up for activities at any time by clicking on the
"Attendee Information Portal" button on the main MyDLV screen.

Please note that registering for DLV 2015 is separate from other things
such as joining MyDLV or simply saying "I will be there" in response to
a Forum post. If you will be joining us, please register at the URL

Big Sister volunteers needed:

Delaney (Big Sister Coordinator) writes:

Currently, we have no Big Sister volunteers available, and historically
we receive a few additional requests by Little Sisters for support as
DIVA draws near.

If you would consider volunteering to help a new(er) attendee, it would
be most appreciated. Please sign-up via the DLV website (use the "Update
Registration" tile under the Attendee Information Portal) or via email
to me at bigsister@geekbabe.com

What you need to do:

Yes, there's still time to get in on our big DLV 2015 event, but the
clock is ticking, prices for transportation and hotel rooms are rising
and some hotels are selling out.

Here's a basic summary of the steps you need to take if you want to join

1. Register for the DLV 2015 event. You may register here:


MyDLV members may register using the Attendee Information Portal on the
main MyDLV screen.
. . . . .

2. Sign up for activities. Unlike in previous years you may sign up for
optional activities as soon as you register. You don't have to wait for
a special mailing. Simply return to your Attendee Information Portal and
use the Activity Sign-up button.
. . . . .

3. Make your travel and lodging arrangements.


Prices are rising and hotels are filling up!

Information about our suggested hotels for DLV 2015 is here:

. . . . .

4. Plan your wardrobe.

Specific dress suggestions for every DLV activity will appear on the
final detailed schedule.

If you have any questions on what is and is not appropriate to wear to
anything, a good place to get an answer is the DLV Discussion Forum.

A good reference, of course, are the photos from prior events, going
all the way back to 1997. You can view these here:

. . . . .

5. Join us and have a great time!

You can "check in" at all of the major DLV activities and many of the
smaller ones. If you have concerns or just want to know exactly how to
meet the group, phone our contact people. The numbers will be included
in the Final Attendee Information.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Things to come:

Activity sign-up starts tomorrow, as noted above.
. . . . .

The next big milestone will be the Final Attendee Information.

Please do not be a "low-information" attendee!


During the week prior to the big event, we will be rolling out our Final
Attendee Information. This set of information has been formerly called
the Large Final Mailing in previous years.

During that week, everyone holding valid registrations will receive a
special mailing announcing that the Final Attendee Information is ready
and a reminder link to the personal Attendee Information Portal, through
which the Final Attendee Information will be accessed.

Among the Final Attendee Information will be things such as:

* The Bare Minimum (a "quick-start guide" to DLV)
* Contact Information - Local contact numbers, Big Sister Hotline
* Maps And Schedules
* Late Notices - Changes - Updates
* New Attendee Welcome and Orientation information
* Setting up text message and e-mail activity reminders
* If you are feeling uneasy or uncertain
* Making contact, checking in, etc.
* Getting there and getting around
* Photography information and Guidelines
* What to do in case something is wrong
* Thanks!
* Things To Come and About Next Year
. . . . .

When you arrive in Las Vegas, you can join us at the first activity
which is convenient for you. Even though you may not be able to
officially check in at some of the smaller activities, as long as your
name is on our roster, you will be welcome and encouraged to attend.

If you have trouble finding the group or finding an activity location,
just phone our contact people. We'll talk you in! :)

In the event you get "stuck" in your hotel room or vehicle (yes, this
has happened), phone our Big Sister Hotline. We'll get someone to assure
you and escort you if needed.
. . . . .

Any questions or concerns, please let us know.
