Scoot & Rally [C3A]: From a 1/4 Tag. Scoot Back; Outsides 1/4 to the handhold, Counter Rotate 1/4 and (Leaders) Inward (Right or Left) Roll To A Wave as Centers Step & Fold and Peel & Trail. Ends in a Tidal Wave.

Notes:

  • Rally is a Little [C1] followed by Centers Peel & Trail as Outsides Inward Roll To a Wave.
  • Historically, callers have called Rally from Twin Diamonds (expecting the Outsides to 'go As You Are'). It is our opinion that when Rally is called from Diamonds, the caller should explicitly say something like 'Outsides go As You Are' or 'Centers Start A' so that the outsides do not start with a 1/4 Right.

Rally But anything [C3A]: Centers Replace the Peel & Trail with the anything call.
