[Callers] Positional Calling

Hi Everyone

In the past there has been a lot of discussion on this group about gender
free calling, and in particular about the terms used for the two roles.

This got me thinking as to whether it would be possible to eliminate the
use of role names and call using just positional references.

Some significant thought later, I came up with a system that I believe
could, in theory, work.  This is largely an intellectual exercise rather
than a serious suggestion, but I would appreciate any comments / feedback /
thoughts / ideas you have.

The details are at: http://barndancecaller.net/PositionalCalling.html

(There is a link to another document I have written about gender free
calling - this is primarily aimed at English Barn Dance / Ceilidh calling.)
