Here are two pages of 1946 schedule for CSRA Bulletin. (from Ed Nicholson's daughter collection)

I think these pages were very early because there were Nunis events.Does anybody knows real CSRA schedule in 1946?

Nice find! This schedule was announced as late as March 15, a mere fortnight before the season kicked off in Georgia - under AAA sanction!!

My story has stalled a bit due to time constraints, but this will be dealt with in post #98 of this very thread.
