Rock The Boat


Rock The Boat is a Plus-level call written by Bob Bellville. Bob was possibly the first openly gay caller in CALLERLAB.

Bob was also a member of the Nor Cal Callers Association and he wrote the call Rock the Boat as part of his membership application and qualification.

The call's definition: Ends Load the Boat while the Centers Single Circle to Wave, Fan the Top, and Extend.

Rock the Boat became popular and earned the status of a quarterly selection (an experimental call in wide use) for a time.

It is notable for inclusion in this history wiki not only for its "danceability" and long-term usage, but also because it's the first--and may be the only--CALLERLAB Quarterly Selection written by an openly gay or lesbian caller.
