ARC Rulings (Applications Review Committee of CALLERLAB):

(July 2006)
Q: Is it proper to call Relay the Deucey from Two-Faced Lines?
A: No. The ARC voted this to be improper as the definition states that the call is to be danced by hand/arm turns and NOT a partner trade action.

(June 2008)
Q: Is it proper to call Relay the Deucey from a Tidal Wave?
A: No. The committee voted this is improper because this application does not comply with the CALLERLAB written definitions.

(July/August 2009)
Q: Is it proper to fractionalize Relay the Deucey? Does this application comply with the CALLERLAB Plus Definition?
A: No. The definition is a bit unclear about how many parts Relay the Deucey has but, it definitely does NOT have more than two parts.

(September/October 2015)
Q: The calls given were; Heads Pass the Ocean and Heads (only) Relay the Deucey. The ending formation was a Quarter Tag. The caller said it was proper to call Relay the Deucey from a single Ocean Wave.”
A: The ARC voted that it is improper to call Relay the Deucey from a single wave. Neither the starting formation, nor the definition will allow this application. The call is an 8-person call and the definition of Circulate would prevent this action.
