Notes:
• The Split Circulate twice is also referred to as Star 1/2. Callers often modify the amount to turn the Star (each 1/4 turn of the Star corresponds to one Split Circulate). EN: 60
• Callers often Replace the Split Circulates with another call or Interrupt the Split Circulates with other calls. EN: 70
• On Scoot & Plenty the Outsides 1/4 to the handhold unless otherwise directed. EN: 80
• After doing the Split Circulates, if all Centers are facing Out they U-Turn Back (away from the Center of the Set) and Touch. If all Centers are facing In, they Touch. EN: 90
• It is our opinion that when Plenty is called from Diamonds, the caller should say something like 'Outsides go As You Are' or 'Centers Start A' so that the outsides do not start with a 1/4 Right. EN: 100
• The caller can optionally give a direction (In, Out, Right, Left) for the Outsides, in which case the Outsides 1/4 toward the given direction & Counter Rotate 1/4 (e.g., Left Plenty, Out Plenty, Scoot & Plenty In on the outside). EN: 110
