No matter how hard you try, there are always some errors that are missed in every publication. Since we hope to republish the material as a series of books on Nunda Sports, we want to correct the misspellings, misidentification and other problems. They will also appear in the second printing of the calendar. We also hope to identify some of the missing people in our labels

Please find below the errors and additions that have been identified so far. We would appreciate your sending others to us!

Special thanks to Gail Diemoz and Jake Essler who have submitted several of these corrections.
