How intriguing! That makes at least 5 variations we've been exposed to. I
guess I'd best look at this dance for myself. ;-)

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.
