2.  Extras
•    Team Uniform –
Official Team Uniform for the Opening Ceremony plus Team playing clothes.
        Cost TBA

•    Administration Fee to cover Team rego plus extras $20 pp

3.  Flights to Barbados:
These are extra to the above quoted costs. It is too far ahead to provide prices yet.  However, by mid 2016
flights will be on the marketIf there is enough interest for one departure we could consider a group flight price.  Otherwise, participants can organise their own routes on preferred airlines.  Our preliminary thoughts are to take the route from Australian airports via Asia to London then a BA flight direct to Barbados.  This avoids transit in USA.
