Welcome:

Once again, welcome to those who just joined the list or registered.
You might want to catch up with a few of the recent mailings at:

http://www.geekbabe.com/annie/dlv01arc/

We're gonna have a very good crowd this year, with a good mix of
newcomers and our regulars. This year has been our best response by far
from those in the Las Vegas area, so we'll be seeing quite a few of the
local ladies (and gentlemen).

We're less than two months out from the big event, so hopefully
everybody has their travel arrangements and hotel reservations in
already. Don't procrastinate on this, gang. You will have to face
increasingly higher prices and fewer options from now until DLV.

Golf:

>> Golfers?

>I was wondering about this too. Do we need to reserve a tee time? Is
>someone handling this?

It's like this. Last year one of the local people made a reservation
at the Las Vegas Golf Club. I am hoping somebody <hint> will do it again.
I don't golf, but I know there is interest. Stay tuned for developing news
on this as plans are made. <hint> :)

Kenny Kerr Show special:

>Not sure whether you get Billhere's Las Vegas newsletter (it's excellent).

Actually I do, and I agree it's excellent. However I didn't get mine until
long after your note came in. You must be on the "A" list, huh? :)

>Anyway, in addition to his newsletter, one of his services is that he
>offers a huge variety of free coupons ... you'll see that he's added a 2
>for 1 coupon for Kenny Kerr's new show to his list.

Thanks. What I'm gonna do is (try to) get 10 or so of these to hand out,
and I'll also post the link so couples and those coming with friends can
take advantage of it in advance.

Sooooo, ladies (gentlemen), if you're coming and planning to go with us to
Kenny Kerr on Saturday, you can save some $$$$ just by jumping thru a
hoop here. As I said, I'll (try to) have a few of these to hand out, but
if you're coming with somebody, you'll probably want to get this 'cause
the savings is significant. These coupons are free except for a modest
shipping charge.

>Item (334). New Frontier's Kenny Kerr female impersonator show has a 2
>for 1 coupon. Coupon expires December 31, 2001.

>To order the above, please do not e-mail me right away, but go on the
>following internet site for further information and how to order:

http://www.billhere.com/coupons-lists.htm

Oh, and while you're on the website, sign up for his newsletter too if
you have any interest in the goings-on in Las Vegas. You will not
receive any spam by signing up, I speak from experience.

Web registration problems:

Two issues have come up with the web registration screen.

First is most serious as far as I'm concerned. Some of you may have
entered textual comments or questions and expected an answer or response
and never received one. The comments were not processed by the system
due to the way some browsers handle some characters in web forms.

A work-around is now in place and the problem has been fixed, but if
anybody wrote something in that was important, please re-send by
replying to this list (just hit reply now) and it will be taken
care of.

Second, I've had a couple reports of inability to use the screens, but
have not been able to duplicate the problem. If you've tried to register
and encountered a problem with the screens, please write in and help us
out. The following info would be most helpful.

1. Where in the registration process did you have problems. If possible
give the URL at which the problem occurred.

2. What happened? Did an error message display? If so, what did it say?
Did the system respond at all or just appear to hang?

3. What type of browser are you using?

Air tours:

Ladies (gentlemen)? Comments? Who's interested (other than Ricki) in
air tours?

Mode of dress:

[edited a bit]

>Excuse me if I'm asking dumb questions, but I'm still confused wrt
>what we're expected to be wearing. I haven't been out much, and most
>of what I have is not casual
[cut]

[paste]
>most of my outerwear is coctail dresses and evening gowns

Those will be appropriate for the two dress-up evenings (shows), the
limo tour, and even the welcome get-together and farewell party if
you want to go dressy to them.

>and lingerie of course.

That will be appropriate under your outer garments most anytime. :)
Or ... as outer garments for Rocky Horror (really, not kidding).

>Will there be a chance to buy a few things more casual?

Yes. Shopping trip on Thursday will hit several places, and there
will be shopping opportunities Saturday afternoon during the Strip
tour.

>I'm still unsure of the right casual look, if you know what I mean.

Homework for you, between now and DLV: Observe gg's of your approximate
age, size, etc. in casual settings, such as shopping malls, etc. You'll
find there's quite a bit of latitude. Of course if you want some opinions
on what will "work" for you, there will be plenty of sisterly advice at
DLV. As a few of the others to suggest things when we go shopping.

Food:

>Hi, I don't see that many meals on the event schedule. What is the
>deal with food?

The only meals on the schedule are those that our people have planned as
group events so far. If somebody wants to plan additional ones, please
go right ahead. (Please take the time issue into careful consideration
if planning anything for the two dress-up evenings.)

>Where will we be eating?

Anywhere and everywhere.

In general, everybody's on one's own for food. Most people eat in the
hotel coffee shops and buffets or the fast food places on or near the
Strip. There are many nicer restaurants in and near the hotels as well.
Some people u$e the hotel'$ room $ervice. :) If you don't like to eat
alone, it will be no problem at all to find others to join you.

>Are we expected to eat En Drab?

That's entirely up to you and what you're comfortable with. Some people
remain in one mode throughout DLV. Others are a bit shy in the general
public and eat and spend the days in boymode and (pardon the expression)
dress for the evening events.

Experience has shown that almost every restaurant, coffee shop, buffet,
fast food outlet, etc., will welcome your business in either mode.

>Thanks.

You're very welcome. :)

Air, fones, and fornicatoria:

>the biffy? Personally, I've always hated the "biffy fare"...every time
>someone wants to pee, you have to get up and stand outside, and those
>toilet seats aren't very comfortable.

Actually, the biffy might have more legroom than Southwest's regular
seats. :) (Hey, I'm not exactly tall, and I find it hard to stretch
the legs during a 2 hour flite on Southwest or America West.)

Hey, just because I don't admit to it, doesn't mean I did it. :)
