Description of the Current School Figure

"Chainsaw"
- Start in "Chainsaw", Horizontal lines of in sync, each line opposite sync than the other.
X's in the front row turn right first, O's in the back row turn left first.
6 turns in the Chainsaw, Leave on turn 6 for the mediums

Break to "Lead Follow" in GS turns
- On the 6th turn Front row of X's break left and O's back row break right into a lead follow in  
BIG fast GS turns.

One "Boot touch" in "Lead follow"
- In GS turns, the 2 "Lead Follow" lines meet in the center for a "boot touch"
meaning as close as you can safely. "Lead Follow" format should have skiers on the
same tracks in the snow as the leader and all 4 pairs should meet on the same spot on
the snow for the "Boot Touch".

Drop in consecutive pairs into 2 "OP-Sync vertical lines" of short turns
- After "Boot Touch" O's on skiers right and X's on skier's left hit back into "OP-Sync" short turns
First pair together towards each other on count one, 2nd pair one turn later on count 2, 3rd pair
one turn later on count 3, 4th pair one turn later on count 4.
All pairs are in to form 2 vertical Op-Sync lines by 4 turns with 8 person teams.

2 "Pops" towards center (to change lanes, not sync)
- Pairs 1 & 3 "Pop" (to change lanes, not sync) on turns 5 and again on turn 7 towards center in
order to get the two "In-Sync V
ertical lines" close enough so they can pop together for a "Zipper"
next.

"Swoops" (to Change Lanes and Sync) for pairs 2 and 4
Pairs 2 & 4 "Swoop" (to change Lanes and Sync) on turn number 8 to get to
In-Sync in vertical lines with Pairs 1 & 3.
Now everyone is in two "In-Sync vertical lines".
Pairs 1 & 3 start count over again after turn 9.
Pairs 2 & 4 start count at 1 on first In-Sync turn with pairs 1 & 3.
The count of turn one is a turn away from the other vertical line for all pairs.

At some point during these pops and swoops, the two vertical line
must stagger rather than being matched horizontally in order to fit
between each other when they pop together for the "Zipper."


Form a "zipper" of an OP-Sync vertical line from the 2 separate IN-Sync lines
- consecutive pairs pop as follows:
first pair pops into vertical line on turn 4,
2nd pair pops into vertical line on turn 6,
3rd pair pops into vertical line on turn 8,
4th pair pops into vertical line on turn 10,

All Stop on turn 14
- in horizontal OP-Sync line near the finish fence.
- X's stop right
- O's stop left



NOTE: For 6 person teams, the count is the same for the first 6 people.
The only difference is skier 7 and 8 aren't there, but the front six do exactly the same as an 8
person team.



For Clarity: There is no point in the figure where the skiers are in short turns in the "V" formation.

The excel drawing which shows a V shape is the best I could do with the limitations
of the excel sheet to show positions in the "Lead Follow" GS turns 'boot touch' section.
After the GS "boot touch" turns, the formation's next shape is two "Vertical OP-Sync lines"
on the far sides of the course. This is done by pairs coming out of the
GS turns into short turns one pair at a time consecutively one turn apart.
