I was interested to see this variation of Corn Riggs - it put me in
mind of a different variation I have seen. The teacher who
introduced it called it (in jest) "Corn Squeezin's" (I have no idea
of it's origins, possible history, etc.) Basically the second couple
does the reverse of what the 1st couple does for the first 24 bars.
i.e.:

1-8: C1 Cast behind lines while C2 Lead up the middle and back.
9-16: Double figure of 8
17-24: C1 Down the middle and back while C2 cast up behind lines and back.
25-32: Pousette

It flows very nicely.
