"A 48 bar reel for ...

"A 48 bar reel for three couples. This dance was devised to honor the founders of the Los Angeles Branch. RSCDS at its Silver Anniversary. David B. Brandon was the organiser and Founding Chairman. C. Stewart Smith was the inspiration and teacher extraordinaire."

The official description tells 1c to finish in 4pl and 3c+4c to step up (2,3,4,1). That makes it a 4C dance, contradicting the initial statement above.
