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

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.
