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.
