Finish (A) {anything} [C1V]
(author unknown)
 C1V:

Do the anything call leaving off the first part.

Noter:
• Historically callers have used the Finish CONCEPT in an inconsistent manner. They have wanted you to start at some point in the middle of the call and complete the call (e.g., from a Tidal Wave: Finish A Percolate). This use of Finish (A) anything frequently results in ambiguity (e.g., from Parallel Waves: Finish Swing The Fractions. Should you do the last 4 parts, the last 3 parts, the last 2 parts...?)
• Today, the Finish CONCEPT is better defined, and most callers only want the first part of the call omitted.
• Sometimes, it is possible to Finish a call even though it is impossible to get to that particular starting formation when doing the full version of the call (e.g., from a R-H Diamond: Finish Single Cross Trade & Wheel).

Examples of the Finish CONCEPT:

Fra Back-to-Back Lines:

Fra Facing Lines:

Fra Parallel Waves:

Fra As Couples Wave:

anyone Finish The Stack [C4]: From Facing Couples. Those designated walk forward to the other half of the Box to join R-H with the opposite non-designated dancer. Non-designated dancers adjust as necessary to form a R-H Mini-Wave Box. Finish The Stack is the last 1/2 of Stack The Line with the designated dancers acting as the original Leads.
