When is the last date for me to register?
Flagz Mas Band offers a limited number of Costumes/FunMas packages for open registration, so the sooner the better, as once we’re sold out, we’re sold out!!
Can I register more than one person?
You can do, but please be aware its one registration form per person as all our costumes are individually made to your specific measurements, also each person is issued with their own unique ID number, so you will need their details when registering.
Can I pay by instalments?
Yes. Once you are registered and issued with an ID number you can pay online, Bacs, Pay pal, or Cash at Mas Camp. The Flagz A/C details are available upon request and you can make several payments, just remember to use your full name or ID number as reference and inform us once payment is made. If you’ve paid for 2 or more persons, then we must be informed via email with a list of all ID numbers or full names and amounts for each person that you have paid for.
