Welcome and updates:

Welcome to those who just registered or just joined the mailing list.
If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

We are now three weeks out from the big event. Things are happening
fast, so if anyone has anything that needs to be addressed, please
bring it up sooner rather than later, as we are entering our "crunch
time" prior to DLV 2019.

Big thanks go out to our DLV 2019 volunteers, who have put together
an exciting slate of activities for our 2019 event!

As of Friday morning our registered headcount is 154, which includes
21 SOs. New registrations are coming in at the rate of about one per
day. The numbers appear to be converging for a total show-up count
in the 130-something range.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Activity Sign-Up is in progress:

Activity Sign-Up is when you tell us which of the many optional
activities you want to do.

Everyone who registered for DLV by Saturday morning should have now
received their Activity Sign-Up mailings.


The activity sign-up mailing will contain a link to your Attendee
Information Portal and instructions on how to sign up for optional

Those who later than Saturday morning will receive an activity sign-up
mailing this coming Monday.

Please be sure that you complete your activity selections as soon as you

Signing up for activities is not optional, please! It also reconfirms
your intent to attend. If you don't want to do any of the activities
on the sign-up screen, just go directly to the bottom and click the
"SUBMIT" button. This lets us know that you're still alive and planning
to attend.

Please promptly report any issues, errors, unclear items, etc., when
signing up for activities.

As of this writing, all optional activities still have space available.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Missing In Action:

If anyone is in contact with Riki from LA and/or Shilpa from Atlanta,
please pass the word to them that their email is bouncing and that we
have no means of contact with them.

Please let them know that they will need to give us working email
addresses if they wish to remain registered for DLV 2019.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Big Lift Bar Crawl sign-ups:

Robin sends in the following note:

For those who make "Bar Crawl" reservations and use Paypal for your fee
I thank you I FORGOT to mention-

Please include note about who it's for unless it's already obvious.
I've got ONE payment that I cannot tie to a reservation by anything in
the PayPal information.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

What you need to do:

any other activity noted "Name tags available" on the final schedule,
and by special arrangement.

3. Use a valid DLV name tag from previous years. Once a valid DLV name
tag, always a valid DLV name tag.
