I learned this variation at KWDS.  Up a double and back; middle couple 
does the casting figure.  All cast to rearrange the set as usual. 
Siding; then, the new middle couple does the hey figure;  All cast. 
Arming; then the new middle couple does the star figure.

Fortunately, the music on the KWDS CD is for "Whirligig" and not 
"Woodicock".  Unfortunately, it's this short variation of the dance.
