 Checkmate
 Jay King  -  page 107

Definition:
 

From columns: Lead two dancers promenade in single file around the end of the adjacent column and down to the forward end to face in as a couple. Meanwhile, the trailing two do a double pass thru with each other, then turn a quarter to face out and step forward as a couple to join the other couple in a two faced line. Finishes in parallel two faced lines. NOTE: This is also called Checkmate The Column.

H.P. Williams 1975
