Once we have settled on a date, we request payment in advance. We will provide you with instructions when we book the date. We only take cash, Master card or Visa As well as a money order.
Weather may very well cause us to reschedule the scattering. The Captain will determine this and will advise you. If we have to reschedule your date, we will apply the prepayment to a future date.
