Lucky Seven version 2

Big circle, Circle mixer. This is the slightly harder version (see previous).
Difficulty:  1
Style:  English
All in big circle, women on partner's right

A1: All into middle for 4 steps and back out; repeat.
A2: Do-si-do neighbour (not partner); do-si-do partner.
B1: Grand chain: everyone face partner, take right hands count ONE and go past, hold out left hand to next person count TWO and go past, etc.  All the men go anticlockwise; all the women go clockwise.  So you're going the opposite way to your partner.  Resist the temptation to turn back the other way after the first handshake!
B2: Swing the seventh person.  When dancers get the feel of it, try calling for passing 8 people, 9 etc.
