THE FIRST VLV BLOG

Posted on May 12th 2011 | No Comments

I am new to blogging but do not worry. I will only blog about VLV related stuff. Things that you will find interesting to help you enjoy your VLV experience. I will not talk about my visit to get a cup of coffeee or what my cat is doing right now. Or even how I feel today.


The tickets for VLV15 will go on sale this Saturday, May 15th. As you probably already know, The Orleans Hotel is more than half full so if you want to stay in The Orleans book your room soon.


We have also added a FORUM to the site. Please use this as much as you like. We are going to add categories so that it makes it easier to find information that you are interested in.

So there we have it. My first blog.
