Welcome:

Welcome to those who recently registered or joined our mailing list.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. Just reply
to this mailing. (Don't procrastinate! The clock is ticking!)

Unless special circumstances warrant, this will be the last general
mailing prior to Diva Las Vegas 2021.

We're getting down to the wire, and everything is still GO! We're
looking forward to a fun and safe event in a little over a week!
. . . . .

YES, there is still time to get in on Diva Las Vegas 2021, but you
must act now!

You can register for the event here:

https://divalas.vegas/cgi-dlv/dlv/aip.cgi
. . . . .

Big thanks go out to our volunteers who have put together a very
enjoyable slate of activities while working around all of the challenges
and uncertainties of doing so in these times!
. . . . .

Please note the various deadlines, cutoffs, etc. in the Things To Come
section below.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Reconfirming your attendance:

Thanks to those who have responded to our request to reconfirm your
attendance at our annual event.

Those who are on the roster who have not responded to reconfirm should
receive a final reminder very shortly.

PLEASE NOTE THAT RECONFIRMING IS NOT OPTIONAL THIS YEAR!

You must reconfirm your attendance in order to participate in DLV 2021.

If you don't want to use the link that comes to you in email, just reply

Latest Covid information:

As of Tuesday, October 12, Clark County, Nevada, which includes the Las
Vegas area, is still rated as "high risk" for Covid-19 transmission by
the CDC.

Although the number of Covid-19 cases in the area have very
significantly decreased over the past several weeks, this decrease
is not enough to rescind the mask mandate in Clark County.

Therefore, during DLV 2021, face coverings will be required in all
public indoor spaces during Diva Las Vegas 2021.

We also strongly recommend that all attendees carry their Covid-19
vaccination cards while attending, as some activities and venues will
be requiring them for entry and/or for service.

Name Tags:

Wearing DLV name tags at our activities is strongly encouraged but in
most cases it is optional. We do ask that you please carry your name
tag with you in case there is a need to identify you as a registered DLV
attendee.

You have a number of 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. If you do
have a tag holder, please bring it with you. If you do not have a tag
holder, we will have them available at activities marked "Name Tags
Available" on the final schedules.

You can print your name tag(s) via your Attendee Information Portal
by using the green "Name Tags" button.

2. Have your name tag printed on site at DLV at the Flamingo On-Site
Check-in on Tuesday or Wednesday, at the opening activities at the
Bahama Breeze on Tuesday evening, or at any other activity marked "Name
Tags Available" on the final schedules.

Name tags may also be available at some other times and locations by
special arrangement. (Email: tech@divalas.vegas)

3. Use your name tag from a previous DLV event. "Once a valid DLV name
tag, always a valid DLV name tag."

There also may be some unique and unusual name tag options this year for
those who happen to be in the right place at the right time. :)

If you have any difficulty with the on-line display and printing of name
tags, please email tech@divalas.vegas and we will help you.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

DLV Group Text:

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.

(And yes, we PROMISE that we will NOT use it for pedantic reminders such
as "Remember to wear a mask" and "Please carry your shot card" and the
like!) :)
. . . . .

One important note!

The service we currently use on the back end for DLV Group Text does
not support "virtual" or "secondary" cell phone numbers, such as Google
Voice, Burner, etc. If you use such a service, please be sure to use
your primary phone number, assigned by your mobile carrier, to sign up
for the DLV Text service.

We've also had poor luck getting Google Fi phones to properly work with
this service.
. . . . .

You can subscribe to the DLV Group Text by:

1. Entering your cell phone number on your Activity Sign-Up screen. Be
sure to remember to check the "SUBSCRIBE" box!

2. Via your Attendee Information Portal using the green "Communications
Options" button.

3. Sending an email to DLV with your cell phone number and a note that
you wish to subscribe to the Group Text. (Or, just reply to this
mailing with your phone number.)
. . . . .

You may also receive DLV Group Text messages via email in lieu of or in
addition to on your phone.

If you don't wish to subscribe, the last several DLV Group Text messages
will always be available on the web here:

https://divalas.vegas/text/latest.html
. . . . .

In the event that you find the number and/or frequency of DLV Group
Text messages to be annoying, you have two options which will take
effect immediately.

Replying "Suspend" (one word, nothing else in the message, case not
significant) to any DLV Group Text message will stop all DLV Group Text
messages to your device for the remainder of the current day.

Replying "Unsubscribe" (one word, nothing else in the message, case not
significant, no spaces, spelling counts) will stop all DLV Group Text
messages to your device for the remainder of the event.
. . . . .

There will be a short test message sent to all DLV Group Text
subscribers on Monday afternoon, October 26.

If you are subscribed to DLV Group Text and do not receive this test
message by 6:00pm Pacfic Time on Monday, October 25, please email
tech@divalas.vegas promptly. Due to the circumstances of the event, a
quick fix to DLV Group Text issues may not be available at other times.

Would a picture of the covid vaccination card on one's smartphone suffice or does it have to be the actual card?

For DLV activities, it's up to the various volunteer coordinators to decide what is adequate.

For facility/vendor vaccine checks, some insist on the original in hardcopy. To be safe I would carry the original.

Just joined Divalas.vegas so not sure about my membership.

1) Am thinking of attending Divalasvedas Event starting Oct 25 and tried to sign-up for the Event but the posted link doesn't work for me. Could you send a link via email where can sign-up? I don't use a smart-phone, just a burner phone so things may get awkward.

3) Would like to get a makeover when first arrive but not sure who to see. Do any of the girls do makeovers or should I try someone professional?

Thanks,
Kacy
