Welcome:

First of all, welcome to all who have recently joined this list. If
you have any questions or concerns, let us know. Just reply to this
mailing.

There were no significant objections aired during our Call For
Comments on the DLV 2021 dates, so the dates of Tuesday, October
26 through Monday, November 1 can be considered to be "In Stone"
for the 2021 event.

Plans are ahead of schedule for our October Diva Las Vegas 2021 event.
Circumstances are looking more and more positive and we're becoming
quite confident that we will be able to have a comfortable, safe and
near-normal event.

We're already getting excited and looking forward to seeing all of you,
both new attendees and veterans, this coming October!
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Schedule notes:

Starting with this issue, and continuing with all general mailings from
now until the big event, we will include a summary schedule toward the
bottom of each mailing.

There are a few VERY important notes about these preliminary working
schedules that will appear in these mailings:

1. Please consider everything on the schedule at this time to be "in
pencil" and subject to change. The schedule is incomplete and tentative
as of this time. Additions will be made, and changes WILL occur between
now and show time.

2. Please do not use these summary schedules as the schedule you go
by when you attend DLV. Doing so in the past has caused countless
attendees to end up at the wrong place at the wrong time!

3. These schedules do not contain activity locations. If you register
for our event and have an advance need to know any activity locations,
write in (just reply to this mailing) and we will assist you.

Complete detailed schedules (multiple versions) will be published in the
Final Attendee Information shortly before DLV. These will include such
things as activity locations; map symbols; cost to participate; exactly
where to meet the group; approximate activity duration; volunteer
coordinator's name, phone number, photo (if available); venue street
address monorail (if running) and taxi instructions; parking notes;
dress suggestions and other items.
. . . . .

Here are some highlights from our schedule. Again, all of this is
subject to change.

There will be several recurring daily or almost-daily activites which
will be open to all attendees with no additional formality, except for
being a registered DLV attendee, of course. "No sign-up, just show up."

These include the Morning Walk With Julie (or an alternate host/hostess)
currently scheduled to begin at 7:30am.

This will be followed most mornings by Katie's Koffee Korner at the
Flamingo, which is an informal get-together for beverages, light
breakfast items, and informal chit-chat.

The daily "Lunch With" will occur on most days, hosted by different
volunteers. Some of these will be at the Fulton Street Food Hall
at Harrah's, but other locations may be used. See final schedule
for exact locations.

At 5:00pm on most days we're scheduling an informal social hour at the
Garden Bar at the Flamingo. No formality, just show up.

Later during most evenings, beginning around 10:00pm we will have two
options to gather and socialize, a "Louder" Common Gathering at the
Cabaret Lounge in Paris and a "Quieter" Common Gathering at the Garden
Bar at the Flamingo.
. . . . .

On Tuesday and Wednesday of DLV week we will again feature On-Site DLV
Check-In at the Flamingo, tentatively planned to be held at the Garden
Bar, but subject to change. This will allow you to conveniently check
in, get your name tag if needed, and ask any questions you may have,
as well as enjoy a beverage if you like. This also helps control the
check-in line at our first major gathering.

Speaking of which, our first major gathering of the DLV 2021 event will
be held Tuesday evening at the Bahama Breeze and will consist of the New
Attendee Welcome and Orientation (details below) followed by the New
Attendee Meet and Greet, Opening Happy Hour, Dinner, light
entertainment, and then the Official DLV 2021 Group Photo (posing
for this is optional).

At 5:00pm on Tuesday of DLV week we'll have our New Attendee Welcome and
Orientation at the Bahama Breeze, the same venue we will be using for
our other opening festivities. This will be limited to new and
first-time returning attendees. We encourage all first-time attendees
to make plans to attend, regardless of such things as familiarity with
other TG events, local residence, time being "out", etc.

At about 5:45 we'll open things up for our New Attendee Meet And
Greet and we'll encourage all to welcome the newcomers into the fold.
Speaking of which, if you are the first person who comes up to Annie
at the New Attendee Meet and Greet and says "I'm thirsty", you will be
treated to the liquid refreshment of your choice.
. . . . .

Golf is scheduled to happen on Thursday morning and afternoon. If you
are a golfer, you can sign up for this at Activity Sign-up time.

Our traditional Eating Out Night, with several dining options, is
schedule to happen on Thursday.
. . . . .

Tennis and Pickleball will happen on Friday morning, followed by Pole
Dance Instruction on Friday afternoon.

Friday evening will feature a trip to Area 15 (no, not Area 51!) which
is a new and rather unusual entertainment venue in Las Vegas.
. . . . .

You-Drive Exotic Racing at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway will happen on
Saturday afternoon.

Our second major gathering will happen on Saturday evening. This will
be a combined Diva Las Vegas and Wildside activity, and will be open to
attendees of both events. This will have a Halloween theme.
. . . . .

Sunday, of course, is Halloween, with a major celebration planned for
downtown and other celebrations planned for the Linq Promenade, the NYNY
area, and many clubs and bars.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Things to come:

Since the planning of our October event is way ahead of schedule, unless
unforeseen circumstances occur, we will be rolling out things such as
registration and activity sign-up ahead of schedule as well.

Current plans are for general registration to begin on or about June 1.

Activity sign-up will begin as soon as it's certain that all of the
activities which will require a sign-up or a headcount are solid as
far as day and time.

Most of our activities are on a "No sign-up, just show up" basis, but a
number of them will require such things as a reservation, a headcount,
a prepayment in some cases, or some additional action required. These
are covered at Activity Sign-Up time.

Further details on Activity Sign-Up will appear as the date approaches.
. . . . .

Shortly before the event we will put out the Final Attendee Information.

More details will be published as the date approaches, but this will
include such things as activity maps, detailed schedules, local contact
information, late notices, changes and updates, etc.

Specifically included will be local contact information so if you need
to get in touch with the DLV volunteers, one or more of them will be
just a phone call away. We'll also have our Big Sister Hotline for
anyone who is new and gets "stuck" in a hotel room or vehicle or
otherwise needs assistance of a Big Sister.

We'll also be doing our DLV Group Text again this year. This is
optional and those who have text-capable cell phones (most North
American cell phone providers are supported) will be able to text
the others subscribed to the service at any reasonable hour.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Group hotel rates at Flamingo:

Cami has again (thanks, Cami!) arranged for discount group hotel rates
at the Flamingo, which we encourage all out-of-town DLV attendees to
use.

This is open now and rooms are available to book by visiting:

https://book.passkey.com/go/SFDIV1

For those who prefer to phone in their reservations, you may call the
Reservation Center at 888-373-9855 to secure a reservation on the DLV
group block. However, you should be aware that a processing fee per
reservation will be incurred if you choose not to use our dedicated
weblink. Currently, the name of the group is listed as Diva Group.

We encourage all attendees to stay at the Flamingo as we will be
organizing various events at the Flamingo, including daily happy hours
at the Garden bar. These rates are very attractive for this time of
year. I have estimated an approximate number of rooms we may need, so
please do not hesitate to book now as you can cancel without penalty.
If I need more rooms I will need to go back to them and there is no
guarantee the rates will stay the same.

Things are looking better in Vegas and hotels are re-opening. Shows are
coming online. Bars and music venues are allowing more occupancy. It
will be a great time so make this happen for you.
