Alone at the End

By Al Olson

Becket, but then all shift left so you are opposite someone of your sex and a man stands alone at each end





If you are alone at the ends you can join in the contra corners as a corner, but you cannot lead the contra corners without someone of your sex opposite you. If you attempt to hijack someone in the opposite line who does not belong to you then chaos will ensue. When one of you is alone at the ends the man should go to his partner for the balance and swing; if the man did not do the contra corners then there is no man for him to do the right and left through with so he should not attempt to do it.
