August DLV 2022 updates:

We are now at the two-month out point in time.

Plans are firming up very nicely for the upcoming Diva Las Vegas 2022 in
October.

Big thanks go out to all of the DLV volunteers who have worked to plan
this year's get-together!
. . . . . . . . . .

Welcome to those who recently registered or joined our mailing list! We
are looking forward to seeing you in person in October.

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

If you would like to attend DLV 2022 but have not registered, you may
register on line here:

. . . . . . . . . .

As of last week's report, Clark County, Nevada, which includes the Las
Vegas metro area, is at the low level of risk for Covid-19 infection.

No general mask requirements are currently in place for the Las Vegas
area, and unless an unexpected flare-up occurs, are not expected to be
re-imposed in the area by this coming October.

We are looking forward to a masks-optional and very close to normal
event in October.
. . . . . . . . . .

As of Friday morning, we have 141 individuals signed up to attend, which
includes 26 significant others.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Working schedules:

Between now and show time, most of our general mailings will include the
latest copy of the preliminary working schedule.

This comes with one significant warning. Please note and consider when
making plans and when attending.

PLEASE DO NOT USE THESE WORKING SCHEDULES AS YOUR FINAL SCHEDULE THAT
YOU WILL USE WHEN ATTENDING THE EVENT!

WE HAD MULTIPLE CASES IN 2021 OF ATTENDEES SHOWING UP AT WRONG PLACES AT
WRONG TIMES BECAUSE THEY USED OUTDATED WORKING SCHEDULES!

The Final Attendee Information (see below) will include the final and
accurate schedules, which should be used when attending the event.
. . . . .

Here are a few highlights from what's currently in place on the schedule.

On Sunday evening, October 23, we will have an informal welcome
gathering and informal dining in smaller groups.

Tuesday will be our big customary Welcome Celebration at the Bahama
Breeze, plus a number of daytime activities, of course.

Wednesday evening will be centered around downtown, anchored by a dance
lesson and mainstream clubbing, along with multiple dining options and
other activities.

Thursday will feature our Pool Party (swimming and sunbathing, not
billiards) :) various dining and socializing options, including a murder
mystery dinner-theater (see below) and a late-evening common gathering.

For those staying over for the Extended Play Weekend, Golf will happen
on Saturday.

Monday, October 31, will be the big Halloween Celebration downtown.
. . . . .

There are a number of proposed or planned activities which do not yet
have timeslots on the schedule. Likewise, some changes may occur.
Please be prepared to use the final accurate versions of the schedule
(more information below) to guide you during our event.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Murder By Association, Thursday, October 27:

Although our official Activity Sign-Up will not begin until around
October 1, there is one particular activity on the schedule which is
a special case, and will need action now if you wish to participate.

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.
. . . . .

Things to come:

Here are the various milestones on the road ahead as we venture toward
Diva Las Vegas 2022.

Activity Sign-Up:

On or about the first of October, we will be rolling out Activity
Sign-Up. This is where you tell us which of many optional activities
held during our event that you want to do.

While many of the activities listed on our schedule are "No Sign-Up,
Just Show-Up" in nature, meaning all that is necessary to participate is
to be a registered DLV 2022 attendee, some of them require headcounts,
reservations, or other action, and we take care of this at Activity
Sign-Up time.

On or about October 1, all registered attendees will receive invitations
to sign up for activities and specific instructions on how to do it.
. . . . .

Final Attendee Information:

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.

The Final Attendee Information will include things such as:

* The Bare Minimum
* Latest Covid-19 Information
* Late Notices - Changes - Updates
* Contact Information
* Maps And Schedules
* What to do in case something is wrong
* Directions to major gatherings
* Setting up cell phone and e-mail activity reminders
* If you are feeling uneasy or uncertain
* Making contact, checking in, etc.
* Getting there and getting around
* Detailed instructions for local transportation
* Photography information and Guidelines
* Thanks!
. . . . .

Meeting the group and checking in:

Check-in for the event may be done at any activity marked "Check-In
Available" on the final schedule.

In addition, there will be designated On-Site Check-In sessions at the
Flamingo during the first few days of the event. These have not yet
been listed on the working schedules.

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.
. . . . .

Name tags:

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."

Further information on name tags will be given out as the date
approaches.
. . . . .

Staying in touch during the event:

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.

Further information on DLV Group Text will appear as the date
approaches.
