(July 2011)
Q: Is proper to call Tag the Line from an Ocean Wave formation?
A: This is proper as an Ocean Wave is a general line in accordance with approved pictogram #76 & 77. (Note: There are some applications of this call from Ocean Waves that DO NOT dance well and callers must make themselves aware of these. Body flow, hand positioning and caller timing is very important to the success of this application.)
