Posted:Hope this gets to you in time.

If you can find a really heavy cardboard tube that is long enough, that would be a good option.

A more expensive, but more durable option would be to get a fishing-rod case. You can find relatively cheap ones made of plastic that telescope to be very long.

If you're feeling handy, you can cobble something together out of PVC pipe and pipe-ends (used for plumbing).

hope this helps.
