2 Weeks 2 go:

That's right, Diva Las Vegas 2015 is only two weeks away!

For those of you just joining us, welcome, and if you have any questions
or concerns, please let us know.

If you want to attend and have not registered or made arrangements,
see the item on this topic below.

One very important notice: We are now entering our "Crunch Time" and if
you have questions, concerns, or notice that something is wrong, it is
very important that you let us know sooner rather than later! Please let
us know of any issues while there is still time to do something about
. . . . . . . . . .

Big thanks to out to the members of our volunteer group who have put
together an exciting and enjoyable six-day schedule of activities!
Several additions have been recently made to our schedule, which now
includes over 80 different activities!

As of this writing we have a total of 157 individuals signed up to
participate. This includes 25 significant others.
. . . . . . . . . .

One venue clarification: Trap Shooting will be at the Clark County
Shooting Complex. This will be noted on the final activity venue map.
Please disregard any other venues for this activity which may have been
previously announced or posted.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Activity sign-up:

Activity sign-up is now in full swing and as of this writing it appears
that about 70% of the registered attendees have made their activity

Everyone who registered for DLV prior to Friday should have now received
an invitation to sign up for optional activities. If you did not receive
this, you can write in and request a resend (dlv@geekbabe.com) or simply
return to your Attendee Information Portal (the link you received after
you registered) and click on the green "Activity Sign-Up" tile.

MyDLV members may sign up for activities using the Attendee Information
Portal button on the main MyDLV screen.

Any activities which do not show up on the activity sign-up screen are
"no sign-up, just show up" in nature and require no formality to attend
other than being a registered DLV attendee.

As of this writing, most of the larger and mid-size activities have
capacity available.

Only a few of the smaller-capacity activities are full.

Two of the Tuesday dining options (Ruth's Chris and Bacio), as well as
Makeovers By Stephanie, which were at times showing full had their
capacity expanded, so everyone who has signed up so far will be able to

Activity sign-up also performs one other important function. It
reconfirms your intent to attend and participate. For this reason we ask
those who do not wish to do any of the optional activities to please
submit an activity sign-up, leaving all check boxes blank.

Registered attendees who do not sign up for activities can expect to
receive increasingly assertive reminders to do so. :)
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
But wait! There's more:

Yes, many of our activities need a sign-up or an advance headcount, as
we've emphasized above, but these activities make up less than half of
the activities on our schedule!

More than half of our activities require only that you be a registered
DLV attendee in order to participate. We informally call these the "no
sign-up, just show up" activities.

Here's a run-down of some of these activities, which don't require any
additional formality to attend. These (and others) will appear, with
details, on our final schedule in the Final Attendee Information.
Activity highlight links are listed where available.

Social time at The Center (Tuesday):

Karaoke with Shiela (Sunday):

FlamBoyance Drag Show (Thursday):

Mainstream Nightclubbing (Tuesday).

Three common gatherings on Sunday evening, Louder, Softer, Safer.
. . . . .

Then there are our recurring activities:

Katie's Koffee Korner - Most mornings:

Afternoon Social - Most afternoons.

Dancing at Paris - Most evenings.

Lunch With Ginger (or an alternate host/hostess) - Noon most days.

No sign-up required for any of these.
. . . . .

For our major gatherings on Monday and Friday, you only need to sign up
if you will be eating dinner with the group, so the facilities can plan
the proper amount of kitchen and serving staff. You're welcome to attend
the Happy Hour portion, as well as the socializing, with no sign-up or
other formality.

Same goes for all other happy hours associated with various dining
options. You're welcome to attend any of these without any sign-up.
. . . . .

Last but not least is our New Attendee Welcome and Orientation on
Monday. No sign-up is necessary and all new attendees are encouraged to
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
If you would like to join us:

If you want to participate in Diva Las Vegas but have not taken any
action, there's still time to get in on almost everything but you do
need to act now!

A good overview of the steps you will need to take appears on line here:


The most important step that you will need to take is to register for
the event as a whole. If you have not registered, you can do so on line


One other item of very high importance is to make your lodging
arrangements, as prices are rising and availability of hotel rooms is

For Diva Las Vegas, you can stay anywhere you wish. However we make
hotel suggestions for those who wish to be among others who are

Information on our suggested hotels is on line here:


Of course you may need to make travel arrangements as well, and again
it's suggested to not procrastinate on this.

If you have any specific questions or concerns regarding registering and
attending, please let us know, and the sooner the better! :)

Final Attendee Information:

On or about March 15 we will begin to roll out our Final Attendee
Information. This will appear on line and will be accessed via your own
personal Attendee Information Portal, which is the link you received
just after you registered.

This information was previously sent out in what we called the Large
Final Mailing in previous years.

When the tile on your Attendee Information Portal titled "Final
Information" turns green, which will happen on or about March 15, it
means that the Final Attendee Information is being placed on line for
your access. Everyone who is registered will receive a notice that the
Final Attendee Information is available.

Some of the important items within the Final Attendee Information are:

* The Bare Minimum ("Quick Start Guide" to DLV)
* Late Notices - Changes - Updates
* Maps And Schedules - several versions
* Directions to Welcome and Farewell Celebrations
* Contact Information - local contact phone numbers
* Big Sister Emergency Hotline number
* Setting up cell phone and e-mail activity reminders
* Making contact, checking in, etc.
* Various "Easter Eggs"
* Getting there and getting around - transportation info and hints
* Photography information and Guidelines
* What to do in case something is wrong
* Thanks!
* Things To Come and About Next Year

One very important frequently misunderstood item regarding our event is
that when you arrive and check in, you will not receive any paperwork
such as schedules, maps, etc. You will need to print these out and bring
them with you. There will be several versions of the schedule available,
which are printer-friendly, mobile-device friendly, etc.

Some people need a map, some don't. We'll have a complete activity map
available, plus on most activities you will be able to "drill down" from
the tabular schedule to the venue details and a Google map to the
activity location.

Please don't be a Low-Information Attendee! Please look over the Final
Attendee Information and print out anything that you think you will
