Written January 2017, called shortly thereafter at Brooklyn Contra. I wanted a dance with a gentlespoons' right-hand chain to a neighbor that was otherwise dead easy, and this is what I came up with. (There are lots of great dances with a gentlespoons' right-hand chain to their partner, but chaining to a neighbor lets dancers practice the move with lots of different folks.) Note that the allemande in B2 is with your CURRENT neighbor, i.e. the one you starred with (this is the biggest point of confusion for experienced dancers used to looking for new neighbors out of a left-hand star).
