This dance is attributed to Roy Dommett. We learned it via Alaister Brown, of Thames Valley International, New London, Ontario.
One dancer steps into the center during bar 5; the other dancers form a circle around him/her. For the first chorus, this will be No. 1; for the second, No. 2; for the third, No. 6, and for the fourth, No. 5.
In bars 6-10, the dancer in the middle clashes (always with tip, forehand then backhand) with his/her corner, then moves one person clockwise in each bar. Everyone else clashes with the person who is available.
For example, in the first chorus, No. 1 steps into the middle and clashes in order with No. 6, 5, 3, 2 and 4. On the first clash (while No. 1 is clashing with No. 6), No's. 3 and 5 clash, and No's. 2 and 4 clash. On the second clash, (while No. 1 is clashing with No. 5) No's. 3 and 2 clash, and No's. 4 and 5 clash. etc.
In bar 11, everyone does a right galley into a set.
The chorus does not repeat.
