Does anyone know where to go about finding a large bison tube in Winnipeg? For the price of them, I'd prefer not to order off amazon and have shipping be 10 times the price of the tube.

So yeah, anyone know if they can be found anywhere?

I've found them hanging from pine trees all over the city!

(You can buy small ones from Lee Valley.)

That looks like a scuba. Yes, we have them available from MBGA merchandise. Smile

I will have the merchandise at the MBGA pub night this evening if you would like to take a look at the ones that we carry. Our current prices for the scuba containers are $4.00 each and we also carry the the bison tubes, which are $2.00 each.

Dang, should have checked back a lot sooner... kinda forgot about it for a minute.

But I'll definitely look into getting one from you guys. Don't suppose you have dimensions for it, do you?

My muggle husband was kind enough to complete the measurements; the bison tubes are 2.167" x .543" (length x diameter, in inches) and the scuba tubes are 2.260" x .825".

The picture that you had posted appears to be very similiar, perhaps identical, to the scube tubes that the MBGA currently have in stock.

I hope this info helps!

Hmm... just a pondering here. Is there any specific 'location' for the MBGA merchandise? I couldn't give a for-certain when I can make the next pub nite (since the next one falls on a day when a friend is getting married), so I'm curious as to if there's a place I could run to some day after work or some such.

The Mbga merchandise has never operated as a central store or location as such. Merchandise is usually available for sale at most Mbga events.

I will be selling the MBGA merchandise at the next event, which is a pub night on Thursday, July 18, at the Fox & Hound, 1719 Portage Ave. Hope to see everyone there! Very Happy
