Welcome and updates:

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

This mailing will give you the latest updates on Diva Las Vegas 2020,
which happens in only seven weeks!
. . . . .

Our next big milestone is Activity Sign-up, which will happen around
the first of March. See details below.
. . . . .

The plans for our second major gathering are moving forward, and
although things are still officially in a "To Be Announced" state, we
have a proposal for consideration which is very close to the original

We'll confirm this in a subsequent mailing as soon as it is final.
. . . . .

As of Friday morning we have 147 individuals signed up to attend. This
is significantly higher (about 40%) than we saw at this time in 2018 and
2019, and we are on track for a great turnout this year! The 147 number
includes 24 significant others. This year about 20% of the primary
registrants are bringing their partner along, which is somewhat higher
than we have seen in recent years.

New registrations are still coming in at a rate of about one per day.

It's still too early for any kind of a total headcount projection, but
we'll be able to do those projections right after the first of March.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Flamingo group rates extended:

As several of our attendees reported, the original block of rooms
available under the DLV 2020 group rates at the Flamingo sold out far
sooner than we anticipated.

The higher level of activity this year simply exhausted the original
block of rooms very quickly.

We're happy to report that additional rooms have been added to the block
and are now available. First come, first served.

You can reserve your room at this link.


For those who booked at higher rates in the interim, you should be able
to get the lower rates either by phoning the hotel directly, or making a
new reservation under the group rates and canceling your reservation at
the higher rates. Hint: Make the new reservation before you cancel!

Big thanks go out to Cami for coordinating the Flamingo rooms this year!

Desperately Seeking Help:

Delaney (Big Sister Coordinator) writes:

As of today, we are in need of seven (7) Big Sisters.

To date, we have had only one additional person volunteer as a Big
Sister (Vivian), but eight new attendees have requested assistance
through the program. In a typical year, at Valentines Day, we are only
carrying a shortfall of one or two.

Please consider volunteering, as we can't expect first time attendees
to return in future years if their initial experience is lacking.
Most Little Sisters only need some help getting started, it is rarely
a time-intensive activity.

You may volunteer to be a Big Sister by either returning to your
registration screen via your Attendee Information Portal, which is the
link you received after you registered, or by simply replying to this
mailing stating that you wish to be a Big Sister volunteer.

As an added incentive this year, those who volunteer to be Big Sisters
will be granted voting status in the DLV Volunteer Group for the
current year. Details appear at this link:

RuPaul Show ticket status:

Christy (Activity Coordinator) writes:

All of my tickets have been sold. We have a total of 39 people.

We are in the Balcony Rows A and B. There are still some tickets
available in the balcony.

If you are interested in getting tickets you can either purchase them
yourself or contact me and I can purchase them and then you pay me
through PayPal.

My email is 777quercus@gmail.com

Please contact Christy directly at the above email for anything
concerning this activity.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Schedule additions:

Several significant additions to our schedule have been added or
finalized since our last general mailing.

On Sunday we will be attending the Absinthe show at Caesars. This is
an "Adult comedy and variety" show which may involve some audience
. . . . .

We will once again feature Bowling at Orleans on Monday afternoon.
. . . . .

On Tuesday afternoon, we'll once again have the Model Railroad and
Railfan Social. Everyone who digs trains or who are train-curious
will be welcome!

Immediately following, we'll be doing Twilight Zone Monster Mini Golf
at Bally's. This is similar to the Monster Mini Golf we have done in
the past. See Activity Highlight in the Discussion Forum.
. . . . .

Also on Tuesday, beginning at 8:00pm, we'll have our private DLV
gathering at the Erotic Heritage Museum. Admission for DLV attendees
will be $10, which is 1/3 of the usual museum admission. Full bar will
be available on site. Tours will be available, or you can explore the
museum on your own. This will also include the popular "Dr. Victoria
Chat Session" as well.
. . . . .

On Wednesday evening we'll be attending the Bronx Wanderers show at
Harrah's. If you liked Jersey Boys and/or if you are a fan of Dion and
the Belmonts, you will enjoy the Bronx Wanderers.
. . . . .

On Thursday morning we'll be attending the Drag Brunch at Treasure
Island. This is, as the name implies, a drag brunch, and includes
live entertainment. Full menu and bar available.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Activity notes:

Golf, scheduled for Tuesday, will happen at the Golf Club at Sunrise,
formerly known as the Desert Rose, which has hosted DLV Golf several
times over the years.

Please disregard any other locations previously announced or posted for
this year's golf.
. . . . .

On Wednesday, by popular request, the Tennis Tournament has been
expanded to include Pickleball as well. This (both) will be held at
the Ballys Tennis Center.

Activity sign-up three weeks away:

Activity sign-up is an important milestone on the road to Diva Las
Vegas. This is when you tell us which of the many optional activities
you want to participate in.

Most of our activities are on what we call a "no sign-up, just show
up" basis, meaning all you need to do in order to attend is to be a
registered DLV attendee.

Several of them, however, require such things as a sign-up, a headcount,
or maybe even a payment in advance.

We take care of this at activity sign-up time.

Around the first of March, most everyone who currently holds a valid
DLV 2020 registration will receive a special mailing containing an
invitation to sign up for optional activities.

This mailing will contain the link to your personal Attendee Information
Portal and specific instructions on how to sign up for activities.

The Activity Sign-Up screen will contain detailed information about each
activity which requires a sign-up.

If you change your mind on anything, it's very easy to return to the
Activity Sign-Up screen and make changes.

It's also very easy to see a summary of the activities that you are
signed up for. Just return to the Attendee Information Portal and select
the green "Update Activities" tile.

MyDLV members can sign-up for activities at their convenience by
clicking on the "Activity Sign-Up" button on the main MyDLV screen
beginning on or about March 1.

This year, sign-up and payment for a few activities will open prior to
the official Activity Sign-Up date. If you have pre-paid for any
activities prior to activity sign-up time, your space is already locked
