From a 1 x 8, Point-to-Point Diamonds, or any other applicable formation in which there are Centers of each side.

The Centers of each side work together, around the Very Center dancers, to do the first anything call (ending, if possible, near the short axis of the starting formation; see note below); Remaining Outsides (2 or 4 dancers) move toward the Center (without changing their facing direction) and work with the original Centermost dancers to do the second anything call.

Within the following possible starting formations for Checkpoint,

The dancers take the first anything call, and
The dancers take the second anything call.

Note: If the first anything call ends in a 2 x 2, the dancers doing that call must end close to the short axis of the starting formation. The following diagrams indicate the ending formation after the first anything call when the first anything call ends in a 2 x 2.

 If you start here... or here...

and the first anything call ends in a 2 x 2, then

 you must end hereafter the first anything call. You may not end here,since you are on thelong axis of the starting formation.

 If you start here... or here...

and the first anything call ends in a 2 x 2, then

Hint: Those doing the second anything call should wait until those doing the first anything call have moved out of the way.

Reverse Checkpoint anything By anything [C3B] (Vic Ceder 1985): From applicable formations. Center 4 do the first anything call and the resulting Ends (of that Center 4) move away from the Center of the Set without changing their facing direction (i.e., Stable). The Others (original Outsides) work around the Very Centers to do the second anything call, ending as close as possible to the positions vacated by the resulting Ends of the Center 4.
