Notice of postponement:

It is with sincere regret that we must announce the postponement of Diva
Las Vegas 2020.

This decision was made grudgingly, as the responsible thing to do in
light of the current situation.

The decision was made late this week, by a formal vote of the volunteers
of voting status, following in-depth analysis of our options and much
discussion amongst all volunteers.

Up until early this past week, we intended to move forward as planned
unless the Las Vegas area was subjected to a bona fide alert or warning.
However, as the week transgressed, the situation escalated very rapidly
and as of this writing shows no sign of reversing.

Sincere thanks go out to our volunteer force, who have spent countless
hours planning the event, and in many cases their own money. We will
now take a breather and shift our efforts toward planning a replacement
event once things begin to settle down.
. . . . .

Due to countless unknown circumstances, as of this time we do not know
the "rain date" of our event. Timespans in the late summer and autumn
have been mentioned, but no plans or serious discussions have happened
as of this time.

Most likely no specific timeframe will be considered until the Covid-19
situation cools down and things begin to return to normal.
. . . . .

We sincerely regret any disappointment, inconvenience or expenses that
our attendees have encountered because of the situation.

Refunds and such:

Most hotels are issuing no-questions-asked refunds for reservations for
upcoming dates, even if non-refundable rates were in force. Please
contact your hotel directly to cancel.

Many (not all) airlines are allowing penalty-free cancellations and
changes for flights in the near future. Please contact you air
carrier's customer service department.

For those who have paid a DLV volunteer for show tickets, please contact
that volunteer directly. If you do not have contact information, just
reply to this mailing.

Nancy is reporting that the Thursday Drag Brunch performance has been
cancelled and that refunds are available. Please contact the vendor
from whom you purchased your tickets.

For those who have booked show and event tickets through other parties,
please contact them directly. Many (not all) box offices and ticket
brokers are offering no-questions-asked refunds for upcoming tickets.

Getting together in Las Vegas informally:

For those who are still planning to be in Las Vegas over the original
DLV 2020 timeframe, there are plans for a very informal "Mini DLV" which
will be open to all who can make it.

Cami will be taking the lead on this, and plans to continue with a few
of the activities she was sponsoring in the original postponed DLV.

One silver lining in this cloud is that due to room cancellations, rooms
are again available under the DLV discount plan, and may be booked at
this URL:
