ARC Rulings (Applications Review Committee of CALLERLAB):
(June 2008) (subsequently revised—see July 2011)
Q: From Facing Lines formation, the call given was Coordinate. The Question is: Does this application comply with the written CALLERLAB Plus Definition?
A: NO. The committee voted this application does not comply with ANY CALLERLAB definition and should not be used.
Q: From Three and One Lines formation (the ends facing in and the centers in a right hand Mini Wave), and the call given was Coordinate. The Question is: Does this application comply with the written CALLERLAB Plus definition?
A: The committee voted YES, BUT, only from the 3 and 1 line formation and should NOT be used at Plus nor A-1/A-2 without a thorough workshop. It would be proper at C-1. The ending formation is Facing Diamonds.
Q: Whereas the definition of Coordinate was revised in 2010, would Coordinate from Facing Lines formation now comply with the new definition?
A: It is still improper at the Plus Program due to the fact it is restricted to “Columns Only” in that program. With the definition change, it is proper at Advanced. It has an unusual ending formation that has not been named and callers must be aware of this as the very two center dancers end with their backs to the formation in what is described as a “Weird Diamond”.
