All levels:     

   view (admin)

From Facing Couples. This call must be preceded by a call which can be followed by a Sweep 1/4.

Those closest to the flow direction Sweep 1/4 as the others Dodge and Any Shoulder Wheel Thru.

Ends in a Mini-Wave Box.

Recycle By Golly:

Recycle By Golly
Those closest to flow direction Sweep 1/4
as Others Dodge
Dodgers Any Shoulder
Wheel Thru

Cheat #1: Veer toward flow direction; Any Shoulder 1/2 Tag.

Cheat #2: Sweep 1/4; 'Trailers of the Sweep' Diagonal Pull By (outside hands).

The following is a partial list of calls which can precede By Golly at C3B:

Bend The Line (from 2-Faced Line) Ferris Wheel (resulting Centers) Sweep 1/4
Cross Cycle (from 2-Faced Line) Linear Cycle Turn & Deal (from R-H 2-Faced Line)
Cycle & Wheel Recycle (from a Wave) Wheel & Deal (from 2-Faced Line)
Fancy (resulting Centers) Shakedown  

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.
