AA     Double up and back twice

BBB   First couple cross over one couple, cross again to third place. Each couple does the same.

AA     Siding

BBB   Two changes of hay, ending 2,3,1 & turn single. Start each repeat with the top person so everyone ………..leads once.*

AA     Arming

BBB   Men hands and goe half round, We. as much. All do this change.**


Music: Country Capers (New Renaissance Band) Needs to be modified to AABBB

Note: *For each to lead, the hey needs to only be the first two changes. There is not time for set and turn, only turn single. The person who started the hey from the top remains at the bottom.

**Drop off top person who led at bottom and the top two people continue to rotate so they are reversed. This way each person leads the circle once.
