    Rod, are we able to just order the shirts, as unable to attend the celebrations?

    • Frank Rands says:


      Yes you can still order shirts even if you cannot attend the celebration. Just fill out the registration form and select the size, colour etc. Will need to add postage to the amount. If it is some exotic location other than NZ or OZ, email frank and he will check it out and advise
