Tip: A useful guide for the first four lines in this table where the work is the same for both Bob and Single. The call will come when you are in the place underlined, so double dodge at that place in the direction you were going if no call had been made. For example in line 2: About to do a 4/5 Down the call comes at 7th place while going down, so double dodge 6/7 Down here = 767676. Referring to the wheel of work, in a plain course if you had just made a 6/7 Down your next work would be 6/7 Up. As an aid to remember your next work - treat the double dodge as if it were a normal dodge and do the next work.

Warning - this does not apply when calls come as you are about to do 3rds or 4/5 Up.
