OPTIONAL EXTRAS:

* A popular optional extra with the CHOOKMOBILE-LIMO ACT is for Prince Charming to stop the car & dance with her on the footpath, teaching her some Ceroc dance steps, during the Faked Breakdown. This can occur at the Pickup Point or destination if you prefer. It often includes a brief appearance on the bonnet of the car...great photo opportunities!...with even more audience involvement! The normal cost is $75, but as part of this package we offer this to you at the discounted rate of $50.

* DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY with the waitress taking at least 50 photos of the Chookmobile-Limo Act & Cruise, in between her other duties. The photos are then transferred to a CD & posted to you for a record of the evening. The additional cost for this service is $75.

This person is not involved in other activities, leaving her free to capture each moment. The photos are then transferred to a CD & posted to you for a record of the evening. The additional cost for this service is $220.

* CHEEZE PLATTER, DIPS & BISCUITS. If you would like this option to be included please ask & we will quote you a price.

* The HEN can be be PADDLED OUT TO THE BOAT, IN A DINGY! (Please take a change of dry clothes for her just in case of a mishap!) This option is available only during daylight hours, during summer months. If you choose this option Prince Charming will pretend as if the boat has left without her, bundle her into a dingy or onto a large windsurfer & paddle frantically to catch the boat, which by this time is out in the bay! All the other girls are on board, so you can give her a rousing reception! There is an additional cost of $100 for this service.

* We used to book a stripper, when requested. This service was subcontracted out. However we found we couldn't rely on their punctuality, essential when on a boat. So now we leave this up to you to organise if you wish. The boat can pull in to the Iron Cove Wharf, to pick up a stripper, if pre-arranged.

* If you have a larger group of girls, we can accommodate you on the historic tall ship, Svanen. The cost is considerably dearer, but it will hold up to 80 guests. It is spacious, with a large deck area & an area under the deck. The Svanen has set menus & is not BYO. Please inquire with us if you are interested to know prices.

TERMS & CONDITIONS:

Because component costs are subcontracted out, prices may change without notice. Prices are also subject to the availability of specific performers, artistes & the boat. Bookings already confirmed will obviously be honoured at these prices.

No booking is confirmed until we receive a non-refundable deposit of $600. Until we receive the deposit, we are not obligated to accept your booking & at our discretion may accept another booking should another deposit arrive earlier.

The cost includes Script Writing, Comedian & Dancer [if relevant for this act]. Other charges may apply [see below.]

When you confirm your booking with us, we will send you a CONFIRMATION & QUESTIONNAIRE FORM. You complete & fax this back to us. It becomes the brief to write the script.

The cruise must be booked as a complete charter, with a lump sum payment. The cost per head is shown, is to help you with your calculations if all guests are contributing towards the cost.

The final payment is due just PRIOR to the performance, either by cash or bank cheque. Personal cheques are accepted, but must be paid at least a week in advance of the booking to allow for clearance.
