Yes, the copyright date on MacNab Set #9 is 1966.
And I find the description of the rondel there almost identical to the Note
at the end of Sauchie Haugh in the Centennial Collection that I mentioned
earlier. The only differences are substituing 1st for First, 2nd for Second
and Women for Ladies. I wonder now if George wrote it, or if someone might
have copied the directions from Silver Tassie and added it as a note to his
submission. Perhaps Alex Harvey or some of the others from the Deep River
Branch who worked on the project might remember.
