Booking Process

  • Respond to the organizers within 24hrs and let them know that their request has been received, is under consideration and that we will be in contact in due course with an answer.  Advise organizer about the process and costs, if applicable. All requests and the initial acknowledged response is to be CC’d in email or form to all EFFP & D executive members for review. 
  •  Amalgamate all advanced requests and present them to our executive in May of each year and then put together the summer parade/performance schedule; For short notice events it will be reviewed in a timely fashion about our commitment to the event. 
    Note for event organizers:  Short notice requests will be responded to in due time, but understand we need to send a call out to our members to check availability and prepare for the event.  For such short notice events (Anything under 4 weeks) we will do our best to confirm, 72 hours before the event, depending on notice time. But will respond with an answer no later than 48hrs before the event. Any requests under 48hrs, in most cases,  cannot be filled.  It is best to give us a few months notice of events at a minimum.  (Funerals are of course an exception)
  • Order of dress is then determined 
  • Once the performances have been approved they will be put out to our members whether they can attend or not and a deadline will be set for members to respond. 
  • The organizers will then be contacted and advised whether we will be attending or not, non availability of members or a conflicting schedule or any other reasons will be noted to the requesting party.
