The following corrections were included ...

The following corrections were included on a loose sheet "Notes on Dances by Bob Grant June 1996", when Book 39 was first sold in the Summer School bookshop:

5-8 Right hands across need to be 'driven' round

9-16 1/2 rights and lefts have polite turns at end

31-32 1st couple don't 'cast' up into 4th place although it feels more natural and I'm sure it will be done !
