When is the last date for me to register?
Flagz Mas Band offers a limited number of Costumes/Fun Mas 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 via the website, BACs 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 a 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.
When is the last date for deposits?
All deposits must be paid at time of registration.

A late fee will be applied after this date.
I’m unable to pay/play Mas do I get my deposit back?
All deposits are non-refundable.
I’m unable to pay for my costume can I swap for Fun Mas instead?
Only if your costume, which has already been ordered, can be sold on. If not, you will lose your deposit and you must pay again, in full, for the Fun Mas option.

All circumstances/situations vary so in most cases we will try to sell on your costume, if given enough notice. A refund will only be considered if we are able to sell on your costume, you may still lose the deposit.
What is Mas Camp? And its opening hours?
Flagz Mas Camp is where we meet n greet new/old members, chill out, listen to Flagz Sound DJs entertain with their latest mixes, practice our dance routines, registrations & payments.
Open every Sunday 4pm – 6pm, start date will be emailed out to all members.
Do I have to learn the dance routine?
Yes. Flagz Mas Band prides itself on being a creative arts group and we always perform a dance routine that blends well with our theme, for the judges. So for us to continue to look good and gain points, we ask that everyone attend Mas camp and learn the routine.

Please email email@example.com or contact one of the Flagz family at Mas camp for information on individual costumes.
Do I have to be in the same costume section as my friends if we register as a group?
It is recommended, as at various points on the road and at judging point all masqueraders have to remain in their sections.

Costumes can join in the Fun Mas section at some points, but the Fun Mas are NOT allowed in the Costume section.
