I have lots of Dow brand Dow Flake.

Right now I am out of Mag...other than my personal stock.

Are you planning on going to Helinski's meet? If so I can bring you a couple of 5lbs bags.

yes, dowflake is for calcium. I have a massive bag of prestone driveway heat (also for calcium) in my basement. I'd be happy to bring you a bunch to hold you over till winter time. I actually found mine at a lowes hidden behind a pallet of topsoil in september last year .

As for mag flake, other than someone locally having it, you can get it at twopartsolution.com... not the cheapest in the world but its there
