Jim Hemphill notes:

In A2 the neighbor swing tends to end with couples "saw toothed" so during the long lines in B1 couples can shift slightly to the left to re-align across from their partner.
When waiting out at the ends, have the ladle on the left and gentlespoons on the right.

Written in honor of the late, loose parquet floor at the Contra Hilton, home of Bob Green, Martha Edwards, and many a calling party.
