Counter -- [C2]

From a 3/4 Tag or other applicable formations.

Centers Cast Off 3/4 and Counter Rotate 1/4 as Outsides Cast Back, Touch 1/2 and Step & Fold.

A R-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Waves;
a L-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Two-Faced Lines.

Notes:
  • Outsides always use the R-H for the Touch 1/2 unless the call is preceded by the word Left or Mirror.
  • If the Centers start in a Two-Faced Line, the Cast Off 3/4 is a 'Push Cast' and the Counter Rotate 1/4 is a Pass In. If Centers start in a Mini-Wave Box, the Counter Rotate 1/4 is a Lockit.

Scoot & Counter [C2] (Lee Kopman): From a 1/4 Tag. Scoot Back; Counter. A R-H 1/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Waves; a L-H 1/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Two-Faced Lines or Parallel R-H Waves, depending upon the caller. In our opinion, when Scoot & Counter is called from a L-H 1/4 Tag, callers would be wise to indicate to the outsides which hand to use for the Touch 1/2 since there is a controversy whether it is always the R-H (our belief) or whether the outsides use the same hand as used during the Scoot Back.

Cross Counter [C3A] (Ross Howell 1974): From a 3/4 Tag or other applicable formations. Centers Trade The Wave, Cast Off 3/4 and Counter Rotate 1/4 as the Outsides Cross Cast Back, Touch 1/2 and Step & Fold. A R-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Two-Faced Lines; a L-H 3/4 Tag ends in Parallel L-H Waves. Cross Counter is a 3-part call.

Interlocked Counter [C3B]: From a 3/4 Line, 3/4 Tag, or other applicable formations. Outsides Counter (Cast Back, Touch 1/2, and Step & Fold) as Centers Once Removed Cast Off 3/4 and (normal) Counter Rotate 1/4. A R-H 3/4 Line ends in Parallel L-H Waves; a L-H 3/4 Line ends in Parallel L-H Two-Faced Lines.
