We do the dance in Atlanta and agree with all those who say 1C are facing up and down after bar 14,

We dance this one in Austin TX, and it is one of our favourites.
The HGB setting is normal up to bar 14; ie the 1s face each other up and down the set. Then instead of doing a petronella turn back to their own side and facing in, the 1s pass each other RIGHT shoulder, curve right to face OUT in 2nd place own side(bars 15-16) ready for the cast right and promenade. Does that make sense now?
