Notes to callers:

• When pushing checkers, By Golly is equivalent to Touch 1/4 or Left Touch 1/4.
• Recycle By Golly is equivalent to Flip Back.
• The Ceder Square Dance System (CSDS) uses the following alternate definition for By Golly: From Facing Couples where all dancers have the same Roll-direction (i.e., if the next call was a Roll, then all dancers would 1/4 Right or all dancers would 1/4 Left): If the Roll-direction is to the Right then Veer Left and 1/2 Tag; otherwise if the Roll-direction is to the Left then Veer Right and Left 1/2 Tag. This generalized definition allows By Golly to follow calls such as Couple Up, Right & Left Thru, etc.
