My first time calling "Punch Bowl." Instead of teaching the ones and twos independently, I tried teaching both roles at once. I had the ones cross and face down, with the twos meeting and facing up (as in "Dover Pier"). Then I taught the rest as a mirror weaving, of twos split ones, ones then split the next, all turn around and take the other role, coming back one. I used the mirror hey of "Grimstock" as the lead-in dance for this.
